- Border Gateway Protocol : In a set of interconnected networks, the means by which different autonomous systems advertise the destinations to which they offer connectivity
- Control plane : Functions in a router that tell it how to direct packets through the forwarding plane; include routing protocols that draw the "map" of the network
- Forwarding information base : Add brief definition or description
- Intermediate System-Intermediate System : An interior routing protocol capable of distributing address information from multiple address families; especially popular for large Internet Service Providers and homogeneous networks
- Internet Protocol Suite : The real-world set of networking protocols, with administrative and operational conventions, which populate the real-world working Internet
- 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 laboratory : An example of a testing and learning facility for familiarization with 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.
- 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 networks : The assumption, in networking technologies, about the characteristics of the user space they support, and, as importantly, the user spaces they should ignore
- Open Shortest Path First for IPv6 : A major revision of the Open Shortest Path First interior routing protocol, principally to let it carry both Internet Protocol version 4 and Internet Protocol version 6 information, but also to integrate various incremental enhancements to OSPF
- Potato routing : A routing paradigm in which the routing sends a packet to the closest exit (i.e., hot potato), minimizing the resources needed to route it, or alternatively holds it as long as possible to guarantee the performance that the packet encounters.
- Routing convergence : The condition that exists when a set of two or more routers agree, either completely or to a generally accepted level of approximation, on all destinations they can reach
- Routing domain : Add brief definition or description
- Routing protocol : Add brief definition or description
- Sinkhole (computers) : A network element, or set of network elements, to which suspect or confirmed attacking traffic is diverted, both for protecting the production network and for planning and executing a specific defense
- Virtual private network : The emulation of a private Wide Area Network (WAN) facility using IP facilities, including the public Internet or private IP backbones.
