In a text message sent to its customers on Saturday, the bank said: “Please be informed that our branches will close early on Tuesday, 30th June.The internet protocol provides for the connectionless and connection-based transfer of
packets across an interconnected set of networks called the internet. In general the component networks may use different protocols; so the objective of IP is to provide communications across dissimilar networks.Each device that is attached to the internet has a two-part address namely: The Host Part
and The Network Part. To transmit an IP Packet, a device sends an IP Packet encapsulated using its local network protocol to the nearest router. The Routers are packet switches that act as the gateway between the components of the network. The router performs a route lookup algorithm on the network part of the destination address to determine whether the destination is in an immediately accessible network or, if not, to determine the next router in the path to the destination. After this the router then forwards the IP packet across the given network. In other words IP treats the component network as data link layers whose role is to transfer
the packet to the nearest router or to the destination.
