Asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) is a type of digital subscriber line (DSL) technology, a data communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than a conventional voiceband modem can provide.
A cable modem is a type of network bridge that provides bi-directional data communication via radio frequency channels on a hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) and radio frequency over glass (RFoG) infrastructure.
A client is a piece of computer hardware or software that accesses a service made available by a server.
A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.
In computer networks, to download (abbreviation DL) is to receive data from a remote system, typically a server such as a web server, an FTP server, an email server, or other similar systems.
In a telecommunications network or computer network, downstream refers to data sent from a network service provider to a customer.
The Internet backbone might be defined by the principal data routes between large, strategically interconnected computer networks and core routers on the Internet.
An Internet service provider (ISP) is an organization that provides services for accessing, using, or participating in the Internet.
Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing or networking is a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between peers.
In communications systems, the return channel (also reverse channel or return link) is the transmission link from a user terminal to the central hub.
In computing, a server is a computer program or a device that provides functionality for other programs or devices, called "clients".
A symmetric digital subscriber line (SDSL) is a digital subscriber line (DSL) that transmits digital data over the copper wires of the telephone network, where the bandwidth in the downstream direction, from the network to the subscriber, is identical to the bandwidth in the upstream direction, from the subscriber to the network.
Symmetry (from Greek συμμετρία symmetria "agreement in dimensions, due proportion, arrangement") in everyday language refers to a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance.
The T-carrier is a member of the series of carrier systems developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories for digital transmission of multiplexed telephone calls.
In computer networks, to upload is to send data to a remote system such as a server or another client so that the remote system can store a copy.
In computer networking, upstream server refers to a server that provides service to another server.
Web server refers to server software, or hardware dedicated to running said software, that can serve contents to the World Wide Web.
