How Does the Internet Work
Published on 29 July, 2019
How does the Internet works? Who owns it? Where is the Internet?
Perhaps these types of questions may be in your mind.
Hi, I am khagendra lama.
Today in this post, I will answer you all of these questions.
The Internet has become such a large part of our lives.
Here we will cover the basic understanding of the concept.
The Internet is a global network of computers.
The post you are reading now comes from thousands of miles.
Let’s understand in detail how the Internet works.
The first and most important concept we need to understand the concept of a server.
The server is a powerful computer, which is used to store content, video, image, etc.
The server sent a signal to the satellite via an antenna and then satellite could be sent signal to your mobile phone and vice versa.
However, it’s not a good idea because the satellite is parked above nearly 22,000 miles.
Because of the significant delay in getting a signal from such a long distance.
So this post doesn’t reach to you via satellite then how does it actually get to you?
Well, it is done with the help of optical fiber cables.
Your phone could be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi router or Cellular data.
But ultimately at some point, your phone will be connected with optical fiber cables.
Now the challenge is how to transfer the data stored in the server to your device via optical fiber cables.
The data is transferred in digital format via optical fiber cables in the form of light pulses.
There are few global companies who maintain these optical cable networks.
The optical fiber cable is somewhere under the sea and somewhere under the hills.
This is all managed by an institution called ICANN located in the USA.
I hope you have gained a lot of knowledge. Keep learning, keep developing yourself.
