TCP

(1) (Tape Carrier Package) See tape automated bonding.

(2) (Transmission Control Protocol) The reliable transport protocol within the TCP/IP protocol suite. TCP ensures that all data arrive accurately and 100% intact at the other end. TCP is "connection oriented" and requires a handshake before the session can begin. See UDP and TCP/IP.


The Transport Layer of TCP/IP
The transport layer of the TCP/IP protocol defines both reliable (TCP) and unreliable (UDP) delivery methods. TCP is used for data, while UDP is used for streaming media, voice over IP (VoIP) and videoconferencing.
