  • A

    automatic repeat request (ARQ)

    Automatic repeat request (ARQ) is a protocol for error control in data transmission.

  • E

    encoding and decoding

    Encoding is the process of putting a sequence of characters (letters, numbers, punctuation, and certain symbols) into a specialized digital format for efficient transmission or transfer. Decoding is the opposite process -- the conversion of a digital signal into a sequence of characters.

  • F

    FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface)

    FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface) is a set of ANSI and ISO standards for data transmission on fiber optic lines in a local area network (LAN) that can extend in range up to 200 km (124 miles).

  • J

    Jabber

    Jabber is an initiative to produce an open source, XML-based instant messaging platform.

  • M

    master/slave

    In computer networking, master/slave is a model for a communication protocol in which one device or process (known as the master) controls one or more other devices or processes (known as slaves).

  • N

    Nessus

    Nessus is an open-source network vulnerability scanner that uses the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures architecture for easy cross-linking between compliant security tools.

  • NOX

    NOX is an open source development platform for C++-based software-defined networking (SDN) control applications.

  • O

    ONOS (Open Network Operating System)

    ONOS (Open Network Operating System) is an operating system (OS) designed for network service providers to help build carrier-grade software-defined networks architected for high scalability, availability and performance

  • OpenFlow Consortium

    The OpenFlow Consortium was a collaborative group of university researchers and network administrators that developed the original specification for the OpenFlow protocol.

  • P

    POX

    POX is an open source development platform for Python-based software-defined networking (SDN) control applications, such as OpenFlow SDN controllers.

  • T

    TP0-TP4 (transport protocols 0 to 4)

    TP0-TP4 (transport protocols 0 to 4) are the five protocols in the Transport layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model for telecommunication.

  • Trema

    Trema is an open source framework for developing OpenFlow controllers for software-defined networking in the Ruby and C programming languages.
