Jump to: navigation, search

In a computer network business, an Internet Standard is a normative requirement of a methodology or technology relevant to the Internet. Internet Standards are also abbreviated as STD. Internet Standards are produced and put out by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force).

An Internet Standard is described by a high degree of technical development and by a usually held trust that the listed protocol or service delivers noteworthy advantage to the Internet community. Mostly Internet Standards refuge the inter-operability of the systems on Internet, through languages, schemas, message formats, and defining protocols. The most essential of the Internet Standards are the ones outlining the IP (Internet Protocol).

An Internet Standard makes sure that the hardware and software manufactured by various vendors can be worked together with. Owning a standard makes it way easier to create software and hardware that would link diverse networks for the reason that software and hardware can be advanced one layer at a time. ‘Protocols’ is the term given to the standards that are used in the data communication.
