  • N

    Network Job Entry (NJE)

    Network Job Entry (NJE) is an application designed for the transfer of commands, messages, programs, and jobs among different computing systems in a network.

  • network management system

    A network management system (NMS) is an application or set of applications that lets network engineers manage a network's independent components inside a bigger network management framework and performs several key functions.

  • network monitoring

    Network monitoring is the practice of consistently overseeing a computer network for any failures or deficiencies to ensure continued network performance.

  • network operations center (NOC)

    A network operations center (NOC) is a place from which administrators supervise, monitor and maintain a telecommunications network.

  • network orchestration

    Network orchestration is a policy-driven approach to network automation that coordinates the hardware and software components a software application or service requires to run.

  • Next Steps in Signaling (NSIS)

    NSIS (Next Steps in Signaling) is an evolving communication protocol intended to facilitate signaling at the Transport layer, using a two-level model to support diverse services and resources... (Continued)

  • O

    OpenNMS (Open Network Management System)

    OpenNMS (Open Network Management System) is the first enterprise-grade network management platform developed under the open source model.

  • optical network (photonic network)

    An optical (photonic) network transmits information as optical rather than electronic signals: It uses light, not electrical currents, to convey data.

  • out-of-band signaling

    Out-of-band signaling is telecommunication signaling (exchange of information in order to control a telephone call) that is done on a channel that is dedicated for the purpose and separate from the channels used for the telephone call.

  • P

    packet loss

    Packet loss is the failure of one or more transmitted packets to arrive at their destination... (Continued)

  • PacketHound

    PacketHound is a product that aims to help an enterprise regulate traffic that might otherwise slow services down for all users of a local area network.

  • PAIR (Policy Analysis of Internet Routing)

    The Policy Analysis of Internet Routing (PAIR) project is a Merit Network initiative dedicated to developing tools that Internet service providers (ISPs), network operators, and end users can use to troubleshoot Internet routing and policy problems.

  • phase-change cooling (vapor cooling)

    Phase-change cooling, also called vapor cooling, is a microprocessor-cooling technology that works according to the same principles as a conventional refrigerator, freezer or air conditioner. The principal components of a phase-change cooling system are the compressor (or condenser), the vaporizer, the radiating element and the pump... (Continued)

  • ping

    Ping is a basic Internet program that allows a user to verify that a particular IP address exists and can accept requests. The verb "ping" means the act of using the ping utility or command.

  • Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF)

    Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) is the part of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) that supports service data flow detection, policy enforcement and flow-based charging.
