What is a basic characteristic of the IP protocol?
- media dependent
- user data segmentation
- reliable end-to-end delivery
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Internet Protocol (IP) is a network layer protocol that does not require initial exchange of control information to establish an end-to-end connection before packets are forwarded. Thus, IP is connectionless and does not provide reliable end-to-end delivery by itself. IP is media independent. User data segmentation is a service provided at the transport layer.
