TCP, or in its longer form Transmission Control Protocol, is a protocol of the internet protocol suite, a computer networking model and set of communications protocols used on the internet.
The transmission control protocol was originated from the initial network implementation that complemented the internet protocol, otherwise known as IP.
TCP essentially helps to set up network conversations via which application programs are enabled to share data.
