SUMMARY
With the passage of time men has advanced in technology in fulfilling his needs and desires. After the mechanical evolution world is now living in evolution of Informational Technology. Mechanical evolution innovate means of transportation whereas Information Technology invented a new way of communication called Internet. Astoundingly communication can be done from anytime anyplace all over the world through internet. The number of people especially among young generations internet is gaining popularity exponentially. I aimed this research to understand its history, development, benefits to mankind and its role on communication. After the invention of computer in 1950, world got familiar with the concept of internet. Professor Kleinrock demonstrated sending of messages from University of California to Stanford Research Institute by using ARPANet (Advanced Research Project Agency Network). Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) developed and supported research projects in 1970 whose focus was on communication. In 1973 Robert Elliot ’Bob’ Kahn with Vint Cerf invented TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) / IP (Internet Protocol) which is still the heart of Communication protocol in Internet. In 1989 web technician created World Wide Web (WWW) and in 1990 it was opened for unlimited public use. Finally VOIP (Voice Over IP) was invented in 1990 and we are all enjoying the free calling software application on internet like Skype.

INTRODUCTION
Technology is not just a word it is itself a proof of revolution. From medieval period to present modern era human being has achieved a drastic progress. Our ancestors who use birds to communicate never imagined a field like Information technology will change the meaning of communication. I often wonder how do this computer do connect to each other. Finally today I got a chance to present a research topic on Computer Networking. In simple language it is a technology that connects one computer to other. It is a technology that has changed the way of living life. It is a technology that has become the part of the world family. Its exponential progress in the field was so amazing that before the world realised the change, the world was already living in the era of revolution in Internet.

DISCUSSION
Beginning Of the New Technology
Necessity is the mother of Invention. World was introduced to the idea of Internet by Professor Leonard. He successfully transferred a data from University of California to Stanford Research Institute (SRI) via ARPANet (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). Now, world was dreaming of sending messages to any part of the world. World was searching for a way of communication between two devices, a way to transfer data from one place to another through computers. Scientist Robert Elliot ‘Bob’ Kahn and Vint Cerf came with a protocol which modified the definition of communication. Bob and Vint together invented TCP / IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol) protocol. TCP / IP are the set of rules for communication between two devices. Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf are rightly called as the father of Internet because their discovery opened the path of communicating two computers or devices across the globe. Through the wires A century of telecommunication How Two Computers Form A Connection?

The initial step in communication is one computer...
