- Internet Protocol version 4 : The main internetwork (also called hop-by-hop or network layer) protocol of the existing Internet and products compatible with the Internet Protocol Suite, to be replaced by Internet Protocol version 6
- Internet Protocol version 6 : The next-generation Internet Protocol, providing (among other benefits) a vastly increased address space (128bits), which should in turn provide the ability for an end-to-end Internet and allowing new models of communication to be developed.
- Medium access control : The set of protocols and administrative conventions that let multiple computers or communications devices share a common network medium, usually referring to a local area network medium, but also an area of radio communications on a given part of the electromagnetic spectrum
- Network medium : A physical medium, including a designated frequency and physical scope, of the electromagnetic spectrum, over which multiple devices can communicate
- Packet : A unit of information transferred between intermediate switches or routers in a packet-based communication system; the most basic differentiation of packets are whether they contain full source and destination addresses (i.e., are datagrams) or have only the identifier of a connection, which the intermediate device needs to look up to find the destination and take a second step to decide where to forward the packet
- Router : A relay that forwards individual packets based on information in their header; typically an Internet Protocol header
- Routing : The process of receiving a packet on one interface of a router, validating the packet and forwarding it out the appropriate interface.
