Network protocols are a set of pre-defined rules and guidelines that computer-related devices follow to enable network communication. These standard rules framework in the Internet protocol suite include identifying and establishing connections among devices. Moreover, they also define how the transfer of data can occur to and from different devices in the same network.

Created according to the industry standards by networking and technology organizations such as IEEE, W3Consortium, ISO (International Standards Organization), and others, network protocols are essential for seamless communication between devices. Additionally, two or more devices based on different infrastructural devices or standards can also communicate through standard network protocols. These protocols include guidelines that monitor access methods, cabling type, data transfer speed etc.

This article explains the use of network protocols, how they work, and a few of their common types.
