S - Definitions

  • S

    S interface

    In Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) service, an S interface is the electrical interface between a network terminating unit 1 (NT and up to eight addressable devices such as a computer or a telephone.

  • satellite Internet connection

    A satellite Internet connection is an arrangement in which the upstream (outgoing) and the downstream (incoming) data are sent from, and arrive at, a computer through a satellite.

  • satellite news gathering (SNG)

    Satellite news gathering (SNG) is the use of mobile communications equipment for the purpose of worldwide newscasting.

  • satellite return Internet connection

    A satellite return Internet connection is an arrangement in which incoming data arrives at your computer from a satellite downlink and outgoing data (such as your request for the next Web page) is sent over a regular telephone line.

  • SCART connector

    A SCART connector is a physical and electrical interconnection between two pieces of audio-visual equipment, such as a television set and a video cassette recorder (VCR).

  • SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol)

    SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a protocol for transmitting multiple streams of data at the same time between two end points that have established a connection in a network.

  • SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy)

    SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) is a standard technology for synchronous data transmission on optical media.

  • SDLC (Synchronous Data Link Control)

    (SDLC is also an abbreviation for systems development life cycle.

  • Seebeck effect

    The Seebeck effect describes the generation of electricity following the connection of two dissimilar electrical conductors or semiconductors that illustrates the thermoelectric effect. 

  • segmentation and reassembly (SAR)

    In a packet-switched telecommunication network, segmentation and reassembly (SAR, sometimes just referred to as segmentation) is the process of breaking a packet into smaller units before transmission and reassembling them into the proper order at the receiving end of the communication.

  • Sequenced Packet Exchange (SPX)

    SPX (Sequenced Packet Exchange) is the protocol for handling packet sequencing in a Novell NetWare network.

  • Serial Digital Interface (SDI)

    Serial Digital Interface (SDI) is a standard for digital video transmission over coaxial cable.

  • Server Message Block Protocol (SMB protocol)

    The Server Message Block Protocol (SMB protocol) is a client-server communication protocol used for sharing access to files, printers, serial ports and other resources on a network.

  • Service Location Protocol (SLP)

    The Service Location Protocol (SLP) is a protocol or method of organizing and locating the resources (such as printers, disk drives, databases, e-mail directories, and schedulers) in a network.

  • Session layer (port layer)

    In the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) communications model, the Session layer (sometimes called the "port layer") manages the setting up and taking down of the association between two communicating end points that is called a connection.
