Transfer of Data

Learn about the ways data is transferred over the network and its associated trade-offs.

In the previous lesson we studied the options for creating and parsing the data sent through the network. However, the main ways this data is sent and received and the associated trade-offs remain unanswered.

The above question does not refer to the underlying transfer protocols that are used, such as Ethernet, IP, TCP, UDP, etc. Instead, it refers to the two basic, high-level forms of communication, synchronous and asynchronous communication.
