Protocols Series

Series Highlights

In telecommunications, a communication protocol is a system of rules that allow two or more entities of a communications system to transmit information. These are the rules or standard that define the syntax, semantics and synchronization of communication and possible error recovery methods. Protocols may be implemented by hardware, software, or a combination of both.The Ossidian Protocols Series introduces and explains the most important protocols for todays’ terrestrial telecommunications.
