T - Definitions

  • T

    throughput

    Throughput is a term used in information technology that indicates how many units of information can be processed in a set amount of time.

  • time-to-live (TTL)

    Time-to-live (TTL) is a value in an Internet Protocol (IP) packet that tells a network router whether or not the packet has been in the network too long and should be discarded.

  • token ring

    A token ring network connects computers in a ring or star topology to prevent the collision of data between two computers sending messages simultaneously.

  • top-of-rack switching

    Top-of-rack switching refers to a distributed data center architecture where one or more Ethernet switches is installed in a rack, then uplinked using high-bandwidth fiber optic connections to a central, high-density distribution point.

  • Toslink

    Toslink is a connector format for fiber optic digital audio cables.

  • 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.

  • traffic engineering

    Traffic engineering is a method of optimizing the performance of a telecommunications network by dynamically analyzing, predicting and regulating the behavior of data transmitted over that network... (Continued)

  • traffic shaping

    Traffic shaping, also known as packet shaping, is a congestion management method that regulates network data transfer by delaying the flow of less important or less desired packets.

  • transactional e-mail

    Transactional e-mail is a type of Web-based marketing in which e-mail recipients can buy goods and services directly from an e-mail message, without being redirected to the retailer's Web site.

  • transceiver

    A transceiver is a combination transmitter/receiver in a single package.

  • transit

    Transit is the connection to and use of a telecommunication path provided by a vendor.

  • Transmeta

    Transmeta is a Silicon Valley start-up company known for its recruitment of high profile talent and its Crusoe chip, designed for mobile Internet computing.

  • transparent addressing

    On a wide area network (WAN), transparent addressing is a method of network addressing in which all intermediate node addresses are spoofed, so the client and server see each other's addresses and port configurations as if there were no intermediate nodes.

  • Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL)

    Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) is the Internet Engineering Task Force’s specification for enabling multi-pathing in the data center. The protocol is intended to replace the spanning tree protocol.

  • transport layer

    Positioned at Layer 4 of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) communications model, the transport layer ensures the reliable arrival of messages across a network and provides error-checking mechanisms and data flow controls.
