operates at the transport layer and provides reliable delivery services
is a transmission. method allowing node to send data to defined group of nodes
network layer protocol obtains MAC & creates database for MAC to IP
The address
Loop Back address
the part of the phone system that connects a customer site with a telecommunication carrier's switching facility
local loop
a digital, packet switch WAN technology whose protocols operate at the data link layer
Frame Relay
telephone network from the lines that connect homes and businesses/ PSTN uses digital transmission. Its traffic is carried by fiber optic cables
- a device used to convert digital signals into analog signals for use with ISDN phones and other analog devices.
Terminal adapter
a secure, web based interface to an application or group of applications
Web portal
A high bandwidth WAN signaling technique that specifies framing and multiplexing techniques at the Physical layer of the OSI Model.
An application layer protocol in the TCP/IP suite that manages dynamic distribution of IP addresses on a network. Using DHCP to assign IP addresses can nearly eliminate duplicate –addressing problems
assigns the computer’s network adapter an IP address from a predefined pool of addresses, through, that IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) has reserved for this purpose.
a terminal emulation protocol used to logon to remote hosts using TCP/IP
the application layer protocol used to send receive files via TCP/IP
is a utility that can verify that TCP/IP is installed, bound to the NIC, configured correctly, and communicating with the network.
is the protocol suite originally designed to interconnect Macintosh computers
-is the process of assigning one network component to work with another
circuit or signal pathway used by MB to transmit data to components

Express Card
stores settings pertaining to a computer’s devices among other things
device connecting 2 network segments by analyzing incoming frames and deciding where to direct them based on each frame’ MAC address
has multiple slots that can hold different cards, or other devices
Modular router
allows routers to communicate. Routing protocols determines the best path between nodes based on traffic
Routing protocols
calculates the best path between 2 nodes and puts this in a routing table
Dynamic routing
is the routing protocol of Internet backbones, used on border and exterior routers
(dual inline package) that toggles on/off
DIP switch
depicts a network in broad scope; it does not specify devices, connectivity methods, or addresses on the network. They are categorized into three fundamental geometric shapes: bus, ring, and star.
Physical topology
in which connectivity devices are connected to a series of central connectivity devices such as hubs, switchs, or routers, in a hierarchy.
Distributed backbone
enables many nodes to simultaneously transmit and receive data
Switch Ethernet
use scanning to survey it’s surroundings periodically for an access point
Wireless devices
