TCP-IP Implementation Standards Procedure
The TCP-IP Implementation Standards Procedure defines specific standards regarding assignment of TCP and IP addresses for equipment attached to your company’s network infrastructure. The procedure facilitates effective network management. The TCP/IP implementation standards apply to all company Wide Area Networks (WANs), Local Area Networks (LANs) and all devices attached to those networks. (6 pages, 1145 words)
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is the company primary networking protocol. While other network protocols are in use on company networks, TCP/IP is particularly important since this is the primary protocol of the Internet. Access to any Internet resource, including the World Wide Web (WWW), must use this protocol. Communication with the TCP/IP software suite depends upon the assignment of unique 32-Bit addresses.
TCP-IP Implementation Standards Responsibilities:
The Network Manager is responsible for managing the company TCP/IP addressing plan.
Remote Site LAN Administrators are responsible for coordinating TCP/IP addressing with the Network Manager.
