A network bridge is a computer networking device that creates a single aggregate network from multiple communication networks or network segments.
In computer networking, telecommunication and information theory, broadcasting is a method of transferring a message to all recipients simultaneously.
In computing, a cache, is a hardware or software component that stores data so future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation, or the duplicate of data stored elsewhere.
In telecommunication, a communication protocol is a system of rules that allow two or more entities of a communications system to transmit information via any kind of variation of a physical quantity.
Connection-oriented communication is a network communication mode in telecommunications and computer networking, where a communication session or a semi-permanent connection is established before any useful data can be transferred, and where a stream of data is delivered in the same order as it was sent.
The data link layer, or layer 2, is the second layer of the seven-layer OSI model of computer networking.
A datagram is a basic transfer unit associated with a packet-switched network.
An error (from the Latin error, meaning "wandering") is an action which is inaccurate or incorrect.
The Fast and Secure Protocol (FASP) is a proprietary data transfer protocol.
Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) is an extension to the Systems Network Architecture (SNA).
Systems Network Architecture (SNA) is IBM's proprietary networking architecture, created in 1974.
IEEE 802.2 is the original name of the ISO/IEC 8802-2 standard which defines logical link control (LLC) as the upper portion of the data link layer of the OSI Model.
The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is a supporting protocol in the Internet protocol suite.
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the principal communications protocol in the Internet protocol suite for relaying datagrams across network boundaries.
Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) is the network layer protocol in the IPX/SPX protocol suite.
In the IEEE 802 reference model of computer networking, the logical link control (LLC) data communication protocol layer is the upper sublayer of the data link layer (layer 2) of the seven-layer OSI model.
In computer networking, multicast is group communication where data transmission is addressed to a group of destination computers simultaneously.
NetBIOS is an acronym for Network Basic Input/Output System.
In the seven-layer OSI model of computer networking, the network layer is layer 3.
Overhead information is digital information transferred across the functional interface between a user and a telecommunications system, or between functional units within a telecommunications system, for the purpose of directing or controlling the transfer of user information or the detection and correction of errors.
Packet switching is a method of grouping data which is transmitted over a digital network into packets which are made of a header and a payload.
A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks.
In mathematics, a sequence is an enumerated collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed.
In computing, a stateless protocol is a communications protocol in which no information is retained by either sender or receiver, meaning that they are agnostic of the state of one another.
In telecommunications, transmission (abbreviations: TX, Xmit) is the process of sending and propagating an analogue or digital information signal over a physical point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmission medium, either wired, optical fiber or wireless.
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is one of the main protocols of the Internet protocol suite.
Transparent Inter Process Communication (TIPC) is an Inter-process communication (IPC) service designed for cluster wide operation.
In computer networking, the transport layer is a conceptual division of methods in the layered architecture of protocols in the network stack in the Internet Protocol Suite and the OSI model.
In computer networking, the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is one of the core members of the Internet protocol suite.
