Within the Internet, an autonomous system (AS) is a collection of connected Internet Protocol (IP) routing prefixes under the control of one or more network operators on behalf of a single administrative entity or domain that presents a common, clearly defined routing policy to the Internet.
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a standardized exterior gateway protocol designed to exchange routing and reachability information among autonomous systems (AS) on the Internet.
Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) is a method for allocating IP addresses and IP routing.
A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.
Connectionless-mode Network Service (CLNS) or simply Connectionless Network Service is an OSI Network Layer datagram service that does not require a circuit to be established before data is transmitted, and routes messages to their destinations independently of any other messages.
The data link layer, or layer 2, is the second layer of the seven-layer OSI model of computer networking.
A standard is a custom or convention that has achieved a dominant position by public acceptance or market forces (for example, by early entrance to the market).
DECnet is a suite of network protocols created by Digital Equipment Corporation.
Digital Equipment Corporation, also known as DEC and using the trademark Digital, was a major American company in the computer industry from the 1950s to the 1990s.
Dijkstra's algorithm is an algorithm for finding the shortest paths between nodes in a graph, which may represent, for example, road networks.
An exterior gateway protocol is a routing protocol used to exchange routing information between autonomous systems.
Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF) is a routing protocol used in Fibre Channel networks.
IEEE 802.1adStandard approved 8 December 2005 and published May 26, 2006.
Provider Backbone Bridges (PBB; known as "mac-in-mac") is a set of architecture and protocols for routing over a provider's network allowing interconnection of multiple Provider Bridge Networks without losing each customer's individually defined VLANs.
Shortest Path Bridging (SPB), specified in the IEEE 802.1aq standard, is a computer networking technology intended to simplify the creation and configuration of networks, while enabling multipath routing.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a professional association with its corporate office in New York City and its operations center in Piscataway, New Jersey.
An interior gateway protocol (IGP) is a type of protocol used for exchanging routing information between gateways (commonly routers) within an autonomous system (for example, a system of corporate local area networks).
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations.
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) develops and promotes voluntary Internet standards, in particular the standards that comprise the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP).
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the principal communications protocol in the Internet protocol suite for relaying datagrams across network boundaries.
Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is the fourth version of the Internet Protocol (IP).
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol (IP), the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet.
Link-state routing protocols are one of the two main classes of routing protocols used in packet switching networks for computer communications, the other being distance-vector routing protocols.
In computer networking, multicast is group communication where data transmission is addressed to a group of destination computers simultaneously.
In the seven-layer OSI model of computer networking, the network layer is layer 3.
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is a routing protocol for Internet Protocol (IP) networks.
The Open Systems Interconnection model (OSI model) is a conceptual model that characterizes and standardizes the communication functions of a telecommunication or computing system without regard to its underlying internal structure and technology.
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.
The protocol stack or network stack is an implementation of a computer networking protocol suite or protocol family.
In information and communications technology, a Request for Comments (RFC) is a type of publication from the technology community.
A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks.
Routing is the process of selecting a path for traffic in a network, or between or across multiple networks.
A routing protocol specifies how routers communicate with each other, distributing information that enables them to select routes between any two nodes on a computer network.
TRILL ("TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links") is an IETF Standard implemented by devices called RBridges (routing bridges) or TRILL Switches.
Within data communication protocols, TLV (type-length-value or tag-length-value) is an encoding scheme used for optional information element in a certain protocol.
