As the communications industry transitions to wireless and wireline converged networks to support voice, video, data and mobile services over IP networks, a solid understanding of IP and its role in networking is essential. IP is to data transfer as what a dial tone is to a wireline telephone. A fundamental knowledge of IPv4 and IPv6 networking along with use of IP based transport protocols is a must for all telecom professionals. A solid foundation in IP has become a basic job requirement in the carrier world. Understanding of TCP and other IP based transport layer protocols is an important part of building this foundation. Starting with a basic definition, the course provides a focused basic level introduction to the fundamentals of IP based transport layer protocols like TCP, UDP and SCTP. It is a modular introductory course only on IP basics as part of the overall eLearning IP fundamentals curriculum. The course includes a pre-test and a post-test.

This course is intended for those seeking a basic level introduction to the IP-based transport layer protocols - TCP, UDP and SCTP.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Explain the key transport layer functions and the concept of ports
• Describe User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
• Explain how TCP provides reliable communication over IP and achieves optimal transmission
• Define the special requirements for carrying telecom signaling over IP networks
• List the key functions of Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
