In this Application you will explore the mechanisms that enable common applications of network communications. Begin by watching the video for this Unit, which can be found in the Explore section of this Unit.
Draw a diagram of what happens when you start up a wired connection to your ISP to fetch your e-mail. Draw a second diagram that shows how you would stream video to a wireless device.
Annotate these diagrams to indicate the devices, file types, and protocols involved. You may use any convenient tool, such as PowerPoint or photo editing software.
