Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)

Published At: March 13, 2024

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is one of the building blocks of the internet. It provides reliable transmission of data between two points by using a set of rules for establishing and maintaining a connection. It uses features such as error detection, flow control, and congestion control to ensure that data packets are delivered in the correct order and without loss or corruption. Many higher-level application protocols are built on top of TCP, including HTTP 1.x and 2, as well as many video-specific protocols like RTMP.
