Communications Protocols: UDP

From Port, we move on to Communications Protocols which are specific rules that guide when and how communications takes place.  We begin with UDP.

UDP means User Datagram Protocol, it’s the process of packaging data into smaller chunks for transmission over the network.  We’ll diagram how UDP performs this task, how it keeps tracks of the data packets it sends, how those packets are assembled and disassembled and what the confirmation process looks like for assuring the transaction is complete.
