3.1.1 Basic Communication

SENDER RECEIVER
Transmission medium

Wire Networking Wireless


Types of communication way
1. SIMPLEX
Used to describe a communications channel that can only
ever carry a signal in one direction, like a one-way street. E.g :
Television

One direction

2. HALF- DUPLEXS
Two way transmissions of data, but one
direction at a time. E.g : walkie-talkie

Two way but one direction at a time

In contrast, a walkie-talkie is a half-duplex device


because only one party can transmit at a time.
3. FULL DUPLEXS
Refers to the transmission of data in two directions
simultaneously. E.g : Telephone is a full-duplex device
because both parties can talk at once.
3.1.2 What is the internet
The Internet is a global network of interconnected
computers, enabling users to share information
along multiple channels.
Also called the Net, is a worldwide collection of
networks that links millions of businesses,
government agencies, educational institutions and
individuals.
Each of the networks on the internet provides
resources that add to the abundance of goods,
services, and information accessible via the internet.
Internet services : World Wide Web
: E-mail
: Chat rooms
: Newsgroups
History of INTERNET

ARPANET was the network that became the basis for the
Internet. Based on a concept first published in 1967,
ARPANET was developed under the direction of the U.S.
Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA).
In 1969, the idea became a modest reality with the
interconnection of four university computers. The initial
purpose was to communicate with and share computer
resources among mainly scientific users at the connected
institutions.

Some Basic Internet Definition
A host, more commonly known today as a server,
is any computer that provides services and
connections to other computers on a network.

Hosts often use high-speed communication to


transfer data and messages over a network.

Many home and small business users are opting


for higher-speed Internet connections through
DSL(Digital Subcriber Line), cable television
networks, radio signals or satellite.

enables a user to display and interact with text,
images, videos, music, games and other
information typically located on a web page at a
website on the World Wide Web
In normal use, web browsers, such as Internet
Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Netscape, access
web pages and allow users to navigate from one
to another via hyperlinks.
Search Engine
A Web Search Engine is designed to search for information
on the World Wide Web.
The search results are generally presented in a line of
results often referred to as search engine results pages
(SERPs).

Access Providers

companies access to the internet free or for a fee.

Q: What does bandwidth have to do with Internet Access?


A: Bandwidth is a measure of how fast data and information
travel over transmission media. Thus, higher-speed
broadband Internet Connections have a higher bandwidth
than dial-up connections.
Internet Setting
Go to Start Click Control Panel
Click Network and Internet Connections

The window show you all the info that related with internet setting
3.1.4 World Wide Web
The World Wide Web is a huge set of
interlinked documents, images and other
resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs.
These hyperlinks and URLs allow the web
servers and other machines that store
originals, and cached copies of, these
resources to deliver them as required using
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). HTTP is
only one of the communication protocols used
on the Internet.
What is the difference between
the World Wide Web and the
Internet?
The World Wide Web (The Web) is only a portion of what
makes up the internet, but it is the fastest growing part of
the internet. The Web lets people, organizations and
companies publish information for other people to see. This
makes the Web a very useful tool for finding information on
just about any topic.
The Web is a large number of computer documents or
"Web pages" that are stored on computers around the
world and are connected to one another using hyperlinks.
These Web pages can be seen by anyone through their
computer's "Web Browser," which is the program you are
using now.
However, the Internet and the World Wide
Web are not one and the same. The Internet is
a global data communications system. It is a
hardware and software infrastructure that
provides connectivity between computers. In
contrast, the Web is one of the services
communicated via the Internet. It is a
collection of interconnected documents and
other resources, linked by hyperlinks and
URLs.
3.1.5 Internet Addresses
The internet relies on an addressing system much
like the postal service to send to a computer at a
specific destination.
An IP address, short for Internet Protocol Address, is
a number that uniquely identifies each computer or
device connected to the Internet.
Domain name is the text version of an IP address.

IP address 216.239.39.99 (might change in future)


Domain name www.google.com
Original Top-Level Types of Domain
Domains
.com Commercial
organizations, business
and companies
.edu Educational institutions
.gov Government Agencies
.mil Military organizations
.net Network provider
.org Nonprofit organizations
3.1.6 E-mail
The concept of sending electronic text messages between parties in a
way analogous to mailing letters or memos predates the creation of
the Internet. Even today it can be important to distinguish between
Internet and internal e-mail systems.
