A Device that regenerates and retimes network signals at the bit level to allow them to travel a longer distance on the media.
A connector commonly used for finishing a twisted pair cable.
Straight-through Cable
A cable that maintains the pin connection all the way through the cable. Thus, the wire connected to pin 1 is the same on both ends of the cable.
Sometimes described as a multiport bridge. While a typical bridge might have just two ports (linking two network segments), the switch can have multiple ports depending on how many network segments are to be linked.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
