21 Existing Post Office Mail Pick-up and Delivery System An IT Communications Analogy Sender Mail Pick-Up Sort Route Sort Recipient 1. Letter has Address of Recipient and Return Address of Sender. 2. Sender drops letter into Mail Box. 3. Post Office picks letter up from Mail Box and Sorts it by Recipient Address, then routes letter via best method or priority paid for. Deliver 4. Letter is resorted at Recipient Post Office and placed into Postman s Route Bag. 5. Postman delivers letter to recipient. 6. Letter is Returned to Sender if address is incorrect or refused by Recipient. 7. This example is used as the foundation for the Internet and the Internet Protocol (IP) being used. 8. Internet is currently transitioning from IPv4 (Internet of Things) to IPv6 (Internet of Everything) because IPv4 is running out of addresses (2>32 = 4.3 Billion Addresses, IPv6 2>128 = Unlimited Addresses). This will support more addresses than there are atoms on earth, so you can expect machines of all types to have IP Addresses. 8/10/2013 Thomas Bronack - Application Migration Guideline Document 21

22 Internet Protocol (IP) Delivery System (Local / Remote) An IT Communications Overview Sender posts / receives data from Internet via 7 Level Internet Service Communications method. Logical Layer Internet Protocol (IP) provides a sending and receiving address. IPv4 has 4.3 Billion addresses (IOT), which are almost gone, while IPv6 has unlimited Addresses (IOE). Sender Mail Pick-Up Sort Route Sort Deliver From PC to Application Layer (1) Physical Layer From Application Layer (1) through Presentation Layer (2), Session Layer (3), and Transportation Layer (4) for delivery to receiving site. Process is repeated until message has been successfully sent and received. This is a Handshaking operation where Data Packets are sent to receiving site and acknowledged as successfully received (ACK) or not (NAK). Failures are retransmitted until received successfully or an error notification is posted (Layer 5-7). Recipient 8/10/2013 Thomas Bronack - Application Migration Guideline Document 22
