The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is a standards organization that develops technical and operational standards and solutions for the ICT industry, headquartered in Washington, D.C. The organization is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is, according to the ATM Forum, "a telecommunications concept defined by ANSI and ITU (formerly CCITT) standards for carriage of a complete range of user traffic, including voice, data, and video signals".
A backbone is a part of computer network that interconnects various pieces of network, providing a path for the exchange of information between different LANs or subnetworks.
Base station (or base radio station) is – according to the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) Radio Regulations (RR) – a "land station in the land mobile service." The term is used in the context of mobile telephony, wireless computer networking and other wireless communications and in land surveying.
The base station subsystem (BSS) is the section of a traditional cellular telephone network which is responsible for handling traffic and signaling between a mobile phone and the network switching subsystem.
A base transceiver station (BTS) is a piece of equipment that facilitates wireless communication between user equipment (UE) and a network.
A communication channel or simply channel refers either to a physical transmission medium such as a wire, or to a logical connection over a multiplexed medium such as a radio channel in telecommunications and computer networking.
A communications satellite is an artificial satellite that relays and amplifies radio telecommunications signals via a transponder; it creates a communication channel between a source transmitter and a receiver at different locations on Earth.
A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.
A data circuit-terminating equipment (DCE) is a device that sits between the data terminal equipment (DTE) and a data transmission circuit.
In telecommunication a data link is the means of connecting one location to another for the purpose of transmitting and receiving digital information.
Data terminal equipment (DTE) is an end instrument that converts user information into signals or reconverts received signals.
Data transmission (also data communication or digital communications) is the transfer of data (a digital bitstream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.
In a telecommunications network or computer network, downstream refers to data sent from a network service provider to a customer.
Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
Feeder link is – according to Article 1.115 of the International Telecommunication Union´s (ITU) ITU Radio Regulations (RR) – defined as «A radio link from an earth station at a given location to a space station, or vice versa, conveying information for a space radiocommunication service other than for the fixed-satellite service.
Frame Relay is a standardized wide area network technology that specifies the physical and data link layers of digital telecommunications channels using a packet switching methodology.
A ground station, earth station, or earth terminal is a terrestrial radio station designed for extraplanetary telecommunication with spacecraft (constituting part of the ground segment of the spacecraft system), or reception of radio waves from astronomical radio sources.
GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) is a standard developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to describe the protocols for second-generation digital cellular networks used by mobile devices such as tablets, first deployed in Finland in December 1991.
High-altitude platform station (short: HAPS) is – according to Article 1.66A of the International Telecommunication Union´s (ITU) ITU Radio Regulations (RR) – defined as "a station on an object at an altitude of 20 to 50 km and at a specified, nominal, fixed point relative to the Earth".
In telecommunication, a hop is a portion of a signal's journey from source to receiver.
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the principal communications protocol in the Internet protocol suite for relaying datagrams across network boundaries.
A mobile station (MS) comprises all user equipment and software needed for communication with a mobile network.
Network switching subsystem (NSS) (or GSM core network) is the component of a GSM system that carries out call switching and mobility management functions for mobile phones roaming on the network of base stations.
In telecommunications networks, a node (Latin nodus, ‘knot’) is either a redistribution point or a communication endpoint.
An optical fiber or optical fibre is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass (silica) or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair.
Packet may refer to.
Radiocommunication service is according to Article 1.19 of the International Telecommunication Union´s (ITU)RR, defined as “a service…involving the transmission, emission and/or reception of radio waves for specific telecommunication purposes”.
In communications systems, the return channel (also reverse channel or return link) is the transmission link from a user terminal to the central hub.
Space radio station (short: space station) is a radio station located on an object travelling beyond the major portion of the Earth's atmosphere.
Space radio system (also: space system) is – according to article 1.110 of the International Telecommunication Union´s (ITU) ITU Radio Regulations (RR) – defined as «Any group of cooperating earth stations and/or space stations employing space radiocommunication for specific purposes.» Each system shall be classified by the service in which it operates permanently or temporarily.
Telecommunication is the transmission of signs, signals, messages, words, writings, images and sounds or information of any nature by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic systems.
In telecommunications a link is a communication channel that connects two or more devices.
A telecommunications network is a collection of terminal nodes, links are connected so as to enable telecommunication between the terminals.
In computer networking, upstream refers to the direction in which data can be transferred from the client to the server (uploading).
X.25 is an ITU-T standard protocol suite for packet switched wide area network (WAN) communication.
