How does the computer know what I am searching for?
Hey there Felica! What is it you do here?
Can we look up kittens for sale on your computer?
Hey Olliee, I work with computers.
Hey look, there's Tommy and Karl! Let's see what they do in this room.
Good Afternoon everyone, my name is Tommy and I am an intern. Currently I am leaning about web servers.
Hey Olliee, I'm just restoring the server.
Next stop packets! Let's head to the whiteboard where I can show you all how these packets really work.
When a hub locates the IP address, the packet is sent via fiber optic cables which run along the ocean floor. It's quite remarkable.
How do you locate your IP address?
Is that the computers name?
Your IP Address is: 172.16.254.1
Great question Mark and Liv!
Here you will see what an IP address might look like.
Hey ya'll, my name is Oliee and I will be your internet tour guide today. Did you know the internet has been around for 10,672 days?
Let's take a quick lunch break before we continue the tour.
I love Instagram
Hey Sam, can you believe how many people are addicted to their devices?
Hey Liv this guided tour is great, but I can't wait to eat! Yes, Val. I hope they have those special chicken nuggets shaped like smartphones!
TODAYS SPECIAL Chicken Nuggets Shapped like Smartphones
I wonder if any new DIY projects have been posted?
Did you know that internet refers to an INTERconnection NETwork of computers? Pretty cool huh. Felica uses her computer to store and process data, typically in binary form. Let's use her the computer to ask the web server for information about kittens for sale. Next stop web servers.
Alright everyone, time to hub it out! Let's talk with Tim
What does an internet hub do?
Thanks, Olliee. This tour has been great!
I ate too much!
Hey Ma, your chin is dropping again!
Hi Everyone, I'm Tim. I have been working at the Paris internet hub for over 15 years now. I hope I can answer any of your questions.
Great Question Val!
Since we are in the web server room let's talk about what a web server actually does. A web server is a computer system thathosts websites. Most of the larger web servers are U1 rack-mounted systems. You can see these rack mounted systems to my right.
Now we are getting to the good stuff!
Those fibers look like that toy I got from Disney!
Behind me, you will see a close up of fiber optic cables.
Looks like employees are at lunch right now; we will have to move on without them. Packets are units of data routed from a place of origin to a specific destination. Some of these packets travel all the way to China!
Look everyone, Tommy decided to rejoin us for this short video on DATA.
The computer locates the kittens for sale IP address and places it on the packet which is already wrapped in all sorts of data. The packet will then be delivered to a local internet hub where the hub will then read the IP address and locate where it place of origin.
Thanks, Tommy. To finish up this tour, I would like to share some other interesting facts about the internet. Follow me!
Nice to see you all again!
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a string of numbers used to identify your computer from the rest. Essentially, it provides your computer a with a name. Pretty snazzy right? If your computer runs off a windows OS, you can find the computer's IP address by clicking the start key and type cmd in the search box. Once prompted, type ipconfig /all and press enter. You should then see your mac/IP address.
Port - an endpoint of communication in an operating system. Browser - is a software application for accessing information on the World Wide Web. Modem - a network hardware device that modulates one or more carrier wave signals to encode digital information for transmission and demodulates signals to decode the transmitted information Bytes - a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits Domain - an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. NSP and Networks - a business or organization that sells bandwidth or network access by providing direct Internet backbone access to internet service providers and usually access to its network access points (NAPs) - All information quoted from Wikipedia
Now that our tour is complete, I will walk ya'll downstairs. Thanks again for participating in this internet tour.
After a quick lunch break, we will make our way to the projector room where we will talk about cables, wires, and hubs. Earlier we briefly discussed hubs, but now we are going to take a closer look.
Thanks, ya'll. I hope you found this internet tour fun and informative. If you know of anyone who would enjoy this tour, send them our way and we will give you a free $25.00 Amazon gift card.
Paris Internet Hub
Internet hubs play a crucial role in data delivery. Since packets are unable to travel straight from your computer to their destination, internet hubs are used. Metaphorically, hubs can be thought of as a train station. For Example, Grand Central Station is one of the largest train stations in the country. In order for individuals to reach their final destinations, they must first transfer to a different train within the station.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors who made this tour possible.
There are many different types of cables used for networking. The most well-known cables are called fiber optics cables, which run along the ocean floor. You can think of these cables as highways; sending information back and forth. Fiber optic cables are unique because they use pulsating light to transfer data.
Data can be thought of as a sequence of different numbers or symbols which require interpretation. Most computers use binary data, which is a series of 0's and 1's. Remember packets and how they are wrapped in all sorts of data? When the packets reach their destination, the data is interpreted and the Kittens for Sale web page becomes visible. Different tasks require different amounts of data. For instance, checking email or social media requires much less data than streaming music or videos.
Last stop, port, browser, modem, bytes, domain, NSP and networks.
Here you will see a whiteboard with quoted definitions. These definitions represent the many components used within the internet system.
END of TOUR
Hey Liv, you want to go grab some ice cream?
Of course !
Hey dad, where are we headed next? I'm not sure yet let's go to that park across the street and figure it out.
