- Internet Protocol Suite : The real-world set of networking protocols, with administrative and operational conventions, which populate the real-world working Internet
- Locality of networks : The assumption, in networking technologies, about the characteristics of the user space they support, and, as importantly, the user spaces they should ignore
- Address registry : An organization, usually at a continental level, that allocates parts of the Internet Protocol (versions 4 and 6) space, as well as autonomous system numbers, and maintains public servers from which information on these allocations can be retrieved
- 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.
- Internet Protocol version 6 address management : Those operational best practices that go into obtaining Internet Protocol version 6 address space and developing an address assignment plan
- Internet Protocol version 6 deployment : As opposed to the protocol mechanisms or addressing conventions, these are the operational matters that arise in deploying IPv6, including interoperability among implementations, support tools, and coexistence techniques
- Computer networking end-to-end protocols : Add brief definition or description
- Multihoming : A wide range of techniques for providing multiple communications paths among logical or physical points in computer networks, primarily for fault tolerance but also for load distribution or traffic engineering
- Routing : The process of receiving a packet on one interface of a router, validating the packet and forwarding it out the appropriate interface.
- Virtual private network : The emulation of a private Wide Area Network (WAN) facility using IP facilities, including the public Internet or private IP backbones.
