Network ComputingA network-centric view of computing in which "the network is the computer," that is, the view that computer networks are the central computing resource of any computing environment.Open SystemsInformation systems that use common standards for hardware, software, applications, and networking to create a computing environment that allows easy access by end users and their networked computer systems.Peer-to-Peer Network (P2P)A computing environment in which end-user computers connect, communicate, and collaborate directly with one another via the Internet or other telecommunications network links.ProtocolA set of rules and procedures for the control of communications in a communications network.TelecommunicationsPertaining to the transmission of signals over long distances, including not only data communications but also the transmission of images and voices using radio, television, and other communications technologies.Telecommunications ProcessorsInternetwork processors such as switches and routers and other devices such as multiplexers and communications controllers that allow a communications channel to carry simultaneous data transmissions from many terminals. They may also perform error monitoring, diagnostics and correction, modulation demodulation, data compression, data coding and decoding, message switching,

port contention, and buffer storage.Virtual Private NetworkA secure network that uses the Internet as its main backbone network to connect the intranets of a company's different locations or to establish extranet links between a company and its customers, suppliers, or other business partners.Wide Area Network (WAN)A data communications network covering a large geographic area.Wireless LANsUsing radio or infrared transmissions to link devices in a local area network.Wireless TechnologiesUsing radio wave, microwave, infrared, and laser technologies to transport digital communications without wires between communications devices. Examples include terrestrial microwave, communications satellites, cellular and PCS phone and pager systems, mobile data radio, and various wireless Internet technologies.BandwidthThe frequency range of a telecommunications channel, which determines its maximum transmission rate. The speed and capacity of transmission rates are typically measured in bits per second (bps). Bandwidth is a function of the telecommunications hardware, software, and media used by the telecommunications channel.Client/Server NetworkA computer network where end-user workstations (clients) are connected via telecommunications links to network servers and possibly to mainframe superservers.Coaxial CableA sturdy copper or aluminum wire wrapped with spacers to insulate and protect it. Groups of coaxial cables may also be bundled together in a bigger cable for ease of installation.
