Locality of networks/Related Articles
- See also changes related to Locality of networks, or pages that link to Locality of networks or to this page or whose text .
- Computer networking media sharing protocols : Computer network protocols that mediate the access of multiple devices to a common physical medium; the data link layer in the Open Systems Interconnection Reference Model but part of the interface layer in the Internet Protocol Suite
- 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
- Address Resolution Protocol : TCP/IP protocol used to obtain a node's physical 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
- Virtual private network : The emulation of a private Wide Area Network (WAN) facility using IP facilities, including the public Internet or private IP backbones.
- Femtocell : Low-power wireless access points that operate in licensed spectrum to connect standard mobile devices to a mobile operator’s network using residential DSL or cable broadband connections (http://femtoforum.org)
- Link-local : Computer information that has destination addresses unique only on a shared transmission medium, either wired or wireless. Think "house number" that can repeat on multiple unique "streets".
- Multi-Protocol Label Switching : Add brief definition or description
- Asynchronous Transfer Mode : A technology for the transfer of fixed-length "cells" of digital information through specialized cell switches built on top of optical transmission networks; increasingly obsolescent
- Frame relay : A layer 2 digital data transmission system, used for low to medium speed permanent connection in the wide area, and beginning to be replaced by MPLS
- Local area network : A range of techniques for interconnecting multiple computers, over physical media such as wire or over wireless radio, within a limited geographic area, typically multiples of 100 meters.
- Bridge (computer network) : A relay that makes forwarding plane decisions based on MAC addresses or other link-local address information
- Self-organizing network : A set of cooperating elements that announce themselves, learn of other nodes of interest, and build interconnections, without the need for central control or manual administration.
- Small and home office : A computing and networking environment characterized by a small number of computers, telephones, and video outputs; a lack of professional systems administration staff; and difficulty in cabling to computers elsewhere on the premises
- Radio Frequency Identification : Add brief definition or description
- Addressing : Add brief definition or description
- 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.
- Multicasting : In networking, the transmission of a piece of information such that its destination address is recognized by multiple targets of a multicast group. Broadcasting is a special case of the multicast group, when the group contains all addresses.
- Unicast : A computer protocol message that is addressed to one and only one destination
- History of computing : How electronic computers were first invented; how the technology underlying them evolved.
- Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers : A.k.a. ICANN, the top-level international organization that directing the Domain Name System (DNS), Internet Protocol addresses, and other technical identifiers that must be unique for the proper operation of the Internet
- 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
- Link state routing : A paradigm for drawing the "map" of a network, to be used by routers, based on a model where the direct connections of each router in a scope are flooded to all others in that scope, and they perform a distributed computation to determine the best paths to other destinations from their place in the topology. Larger link state networks, for performance reasons, are usually hierarchical.
- Locality of reference : A commonly observed pattern in memory accesses by a computer program over time.
- Automatic Identification System : A system, aboard ships and boats, that combines marine radio transmitters and receivers, Global Navigation Satellite System receivers, and computer control into a self-organizing, mobile network in which vessels are inform nearby traffic, potential collision hazards, and navigational information
- Cellular telephony : A set of techniques that let many low-powered portable telephones connect to the fixed network, often exchanging data and images as well as voice
- Global Information Grid : The overall computing and communications architecture and systems interconnecting the U.S. Department of Defense military and civilian organizations, other government agencies, and allied nations; information is at the strategic/theater and operational, not tactical levels

- Bridge (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Datagram : A self-contained unit of data, containing a source and destination address analogous to a letter, which can be efficiently forwarded by routers
- Electromagnetic spectrum : The range of electromagnetic waves covering all frequencies and wavelengths.
- Ethernet : An early proprietary standard for local area networks developed by IEEE Project 802; the term has become generic for various connectors and communications techniques although the name of a standard would be more precise.
- Full duplex : A property of a communications medium that allows simultaneous transmission by all endpoints
- IEEE 1394 : Also called FireWire, a standard interface between computers and peripherals
- IEEE Project 802 : The main standards body, with many working groups, that specifies technical standards for wired and wireless local area networks, with ranges up to tens of kilometers
- Open Shortest Path First : Add brief definition or description
- Physical layer protocol : A mechanical, and electrical or optical, specification that defines the connection between a computer and the transmission medium, aspects or all details of the transmission medium, or both
- Protocol (computer) : A complete specification of the rules for communication between two or more computing devices in a computer network.
