The primary protocol of communication given in the suite of Internet Protocol for transmitting datagrams through network boundaries is known as the Internet Protocol. Internet Protocol, most of the times, is also known as the IP. The routing function of the Internet Protocol allows internet working. Internet working is the technique of connecting different networks to a computer network by using gateways that gives a similar way of routing data packets concerning the networks.

Internet Protocol has the chore of supplying packets from the main source to the main destination completely based on the IP addresses inside the packet header. With this motive, IP describes packet structure that summarizes the data which is to be delivered. It also describes the addressing techniques that are used to name the datagram with destination and source information.

The design of the Internet Protocol consists of the end-to-end principle. The network structure, under this design, is expected to be naturally untrustworthy at any of the single network element. No chief observing or performance precaution amenities exist on that path or manage the state of the web. All mistakes in the network should be perceived and remunerated by the end nodules of a program. The upper level protocols of the IP suite are accountable for solving consistency issues.
