- 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
- Anycasting : A technique for increasing load distribution and fault tolerance in networks with multiple copies of a read-only server function, but with the same unicast address.
- Autonomous System : A set of routers and Internet Protocol addresses, under one or more administrative managers, that present a common routing policy to the Internet routing system via the Border Gateway Protocol
- BGP connection establishment : used to establish a TCP connection and a BGP session between two routers before they can exchange exterior routing information.
- BGP multihoming : Multihoming to one or more other autonomous systems, based on reachability information transmitted via the Border Gateway Protocol
- Border Gateway Protocol : In a set of interconnected networks, the means by which different autonomous systems advertise the destinations to which they offer connectivity
- Fault tolerance : A characteristic of a system such that it can have one or more subcomponents fail, yet have the system continue to operate with at least partial functionality
- 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
- 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 : A protocol that is used to transmit data across an Internet Protocol Suite-compatible network, "hop-by-hop" from the source host, through intermediate routers, to the destination host
- Internet Service Provider : A business, or possibly an internal support organization, that manages connectivity among end user workstations, local area networks, servers, and the public Internet using Internet Protocol version 4, Internet Protocol version 6, or both.
- Internet transit provider : A Internet Service Provider that is connected to the default-free zone (DFZ), and, for a payment, will connect customers to the DFZ.
- Intranet : A set of networked computers, under one administration, which can only communicate with one another.
- Routing Policy Specification Language : An IETF-standardized description language that allows the precise specification of relationships involved in the routing policies of the global Internet
- 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.
