The Internet Protocol (IP) - used for transmitting data across networks everywhere - has moved beyond its origins. Once one of many, it has become a near standard for all types of computer communication. It is used pervasively, transmitting data to and from a multitude of devices ranging from those in our pockets to spacecraft circling distant planets.
