  • M

    multicast

    Multicast is communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a network.

  • Multicast Dissemination Protocol (MDP)

    The Multicast Dissemination Protocol (MDP) is a communications protocol for one-to-many transmissions in wired or wireless networks.

  • Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS)

    Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS) is a broadcasting and communications service that operates in the ultra-high-frequency (UHF) portion of the radio spectrum between 2.1 and 2.7 GHz.

  • multichassis multilink PPP (MMP)

    Multichassis multilink PPP (MMP) is an extension of multilink PPP (MP) in which the subscriber can consist of more than one computer... (Continued)

  • multihomed

    Multihomed describes a computer host that has multiple IP addresses to connected networks.

  • multilink PPP

    Multilink PPP is a communications protocol that enables a personal computer (PC) to use two PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) communications ports as if they were a single port of greater bandwidth... (Continued)

  • multimode fiber

    In optical fiber technology, multimode fiber is optical fiber that is designed to carry multiple light rays or modes concurrently, each at a slightly different reflection angle within the optical fiber core.

  • multiplexing

    Multiplexing is the simultaneous sending of multiple information streams over a communications medium as a single, complex signal that is then recovered at the receiving end.

  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)

    Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a protocol-agnostic routing technique designed to speed up and shape traffic flows across enterprise wide area and service provider networks.

  • multistation access unit (MSAU)

    A multistation access unit (MSAU) is a hub or concentrator that connects a group of computers ('nodes' in network terminology) to a token ring local area network.

  • mutex (mutual exclusion object)

    In computer programming, a mutex (mutual exclusion object) is a program object that is created so that multiple program thread can take turns sharing the same resource, such as access to a file.

  • mux

    In communication transmission systems, mux (pronounce muks, sometimes spelled "MUX") is an abbreviation for multiplexing, a device that sends multiple signals on a carrier channel at the same time in the form of a single, complex signal to another device that recovers the separate signals at the receiving end.
