TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol) allows one computer to talk to another computer via the internet by compiling packets of data and sending them to the right place. This protocol is, quite simply, what makes the internet work. TCP/IP specifies how data is exchanged over the internet by providing end-to-end communications that identify how it should be broken down, addressed, transmitted, routed, and received at the destination. Almost all traffic on the internet today is transported by TCP protocol.

Knowledge of TCP/IP is essential for those seeking employment as network and computer systems administrators. Such positions paid a median annual wage of $82,050 in 2018, and job growth in this field is projected to be 5% from 2018 to 2028. Those versed in TCP/IP can obtain employment as systems support technicians, network engineers, and security analysts.
