  • CRC-4 (Cyclic Redundancy Check 4)

    CRC-4 (Cyclic Redundancy Check 4) is a form of cyclic redundancy checking (a method of checking for errors in transmitted data) that is used on E-1 trunk lines. Continue Reading

  • segmentation and reassembly (SAR)

    In a packet-switched telecommunication network, segmentation and reassembly (SAR, sometimes just referred to as segmentation) is the process of breaking a packet into smaller units before transmission and reassembling them into the proper order at ... Continue Reading

  • home agent

    In Mobile Internet Protocol (Mobile IP), a home agent is a router on a mobile node's home network that maintains information about the device's current location, as identified in its care-of address. Continue Reading

  • red route

    A red route is one of three categories of Internet route states defined by the Policy Analysis of Internet Routing (PAIR) project, an initiative dedicated to the development of tools that ISPs (Internet service providers), network operators, and end... Continue Reading

  • 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. Continue Reading

  • green route

    A green route is one of three categories of Internet route states defined by the Policy Analysis of Internet Routing (PAIR) project, an initiative dedicated to the development of tools that ISPs (Internet service providers), network operators, and ...Continue Reading

    A grey route is one of three categories of Internet routes defined by the Policy Analysis of Internet Routing (PAIR) project, an initiative dedicated to the development of tools that ISPs (Internet service providers), network operators, and end ...Continue Reading

  • cross-bar switch

    In a network, a cross-bar switch is a device that is capable of channeling data between any two devices that are attached to it up to its maximum number of ports.Continue Reading

  • 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).Continue Reading

  • one-armed router

    A one-armed router is a router that routes traffic between virtual local area networks (VLANs).Continue Reading

  • dynamic port numbers (private port numbers)

    The dynamic port numbers (also known as the private port numbers) are the port numbers that are available for use by any application to use in communicating with any other application, using the Internet's Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or the ...Continue Reading

  • NWay

    NWay is a telecommunications protocol used with Ethernet networking devices (such as router and switch) to automatically negotiate the highest possible common transmission speed between two devices.Continue Reading

  • ingress

    Ingress (pronounced IHN-grehs, from Latin ingressus or stepping into) is the act of entering something.Continue Reading

  • Molex

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

  • routing switch

    In a network, a 'routing switch' is a device that combines the functions of a switch, which forwards data by looking at a physical device address, and a router, which forwards packets by locating a next hop address.Continue Reading
