    MILNET

    MILNET was the name given to the part of ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet, that was designated for nonclassified U.S. military use.

  • Mininet

    Mininet is a software emulator for prototyping a large network on a single machine. 

  • modem doubling

    Modem doubling is an inexpensive way for a user who wants a fast Internet connection, but can only connect with an analog telephone line, to use two 56kbps modems to double their bandwidth.

  • modem error-correcting protocols

    The protocols that modems agree on and use for checking and correcting transmission errors have evolved toward accuracy, speed, and efficiency since 1978 when the Xmodem protocol became a de facto standard.

  • modem lights (AA)

    This page provides a description of the abbreviations and meanings of each of the lights that describe the "handshaking" between a computer modem and the UART chip in a computer.

  • modulation

    Modulation is the process of converting data into radio waves by adding information to an electronic or optical carrier signal.

  • Molex

    In business since 1938, Molex manufactures electronic, electrical, and optical fiber connectors.

  • moonbounce or Earth-Moon-Earth (EME)

    Moonbounce, also called Earth-Moon-Earth (EME), is a form of wireless communication in which the moon is used as a passive satellite.

  • Morse code

    Morse code is a method of sending text messages by keying in a series of electronic pulses, usually represented as a short pulse (called a "dot") and a long pulse (a "dash").

  • MOSPF (Multicast Open Shortest Path First)

    MOSPF (Multicast Open Shortest Path First) is an extension to the OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) protocol that facilitates interoperation between unicast and multicast routers... (Continued)

  • MPLS-TP (MPLS Transport Profile)

    The Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is a protocol extension of MPLS designed to speed up and shape network traffic in operator transport networks.

  • mrouter (multicast router)

    An mrouter, or multicast router, is a router program that distinguishes between multicast and unicast packets and determines how they should be distributed along the Multicast Internet (sometimes known as the Multicast Backbone or MBone).

  • mu-Law

    Mu-Law is the standard codec (compression/decompression) algorithm for pulse code modulation (PCM) from the CCITT (Consultative Committee for International Telephone and Telegraph).

  • multi-tapping

    Multi-tapping is an older procedure used to enter text using a telephone keypad.

  • multi-user MIMO

    Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a wireless communication technology that uses multiple antennas to improve communication by creating multiple connections to the same device at the same time
