The process of communicating between disparate devices is not terribly complex if certain assumptions are valid. The list of assumptions includes the assumption that there exists a path through which communications may be conducted, that there is a mutually acceptable method to section up the messages and cause them to move along the chosen path and that the content of the messages is understandable by all communicating parties.
