Transmission Control Protocol
TCP is the connection-oriented protocol built on top of Internet Protocol (IP) and is nearly always seen in the combination TCP/IP (TCP over IP). It adds reliable communication and flow-control and provides full-duplex, process-to-process connections.
User Datagram Protocol is the other, connectionless, protocol that runs on top of IP.
