enabled, so the router will automatically assign a dynamic IP address to your camera. Another option is to
select Static IP, the IP address you configure must match with your local network setting. For example, if
your router’s IP address is 192.168.2.1, and its subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, the IP address you assign
to the camera must be 192.168.2.x, where x is a number from 2~254, not within the DHCP range (i.e.
100~199). You can refer to the router’s user manual to find out the required information.

NUMBERS
10BASE-T
100BASE-TX
10BASE-T is Ethernet over UTP Category III, IV, or V unshielded twisted-pair media.
The two-pair twisted-media implementation of 100BASE-T is called 100BASE-TX.
A
ADPCM
AMR
Applet
ASCII
ARP
AVI
Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation, a new technology improved from DPCM,
which encodes analog sounds to digital form.
AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) is an audio data compression scheme optimized for speech
coding, which is adopted as the standard speech codec by 3GPP.
Applets are small Java programs that can be embedded in an HTML page. The rule at
the moment is that an applet can only make an Internet connection to the computer
from that the applet was sent.
American Standard Code For Information Interchange, it is the standard method for
encoding characters as 8-bit sequences of binary numbers, allowing a maximum of 256
characters.
Address Resolution Protocol. ARP is a protocol that resides at the TCP/IP Internet layer
that delivers data on the same network by translating an IP address to a physical
address.
Audio Video Interleave, it is a Windows platform audio and video file type, a common
format for small movies and videos.
B
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol is an Internet protocol that can automatically configure a network
device in a diskless workstation to give its own IP address.
C
Communication
Connection
Communication has four components: sender, receiver, message, and medium. In
networks, devices and application tasks and processes communicate messages to
each other over media. They represent the sender and receivers. The data they send is
the message. The cabling or transmission method they use is the medium.
In networking, two devices establish a connection to communicate with each other.
D
DHCP
DNS
Developed by Microsoft, DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol for
assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. With dynamic addressing, a
device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. In some
systems, the device's IP address can even change while it is still connected. It also
supports a mix of static and dynamic IP addresses. This simplifies the task for network
administrators because the software keeps track of IP addresses rather than requiring
an administrator to manage the task. A new computer can be added to a network
without the hassle of manually assigning it a unique IP address. DHCP allows the
specification for the service provided by a router, gateway, or other network device that
automatically assigns an IP address to any device that requests one.
Domain Name System is an Internet service that translates domain names into IP
addresses. Since domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The
Internet however, is really based on IP addresses every time you use a domain name
the DNS will translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the
domain name www.network_camera.com might translate to 192.167.222.8.
E
Enterprise network
An enterprise network consists of collections of networks connected to each other over
a geographically dispersed area. The enterprise network serves the needs of a widely
distributed company and operates the company’s mission-critical applications.

Ethernet
The most popular LAN communication technology. There are a variety of types of
Ethernet, including 10Mbps (traditional Ethernet), 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet), and
1,000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet). Most Ethernet networks use Category 5 cabling to carry
information, in the form of electrical signals, between devices. Ethernet is an
implementation of CSMA/CD that operates in a bus or star topology.
F
Fast Ethernet
Firewall
Fast Ethernet, also called 100BASE-T, operates at 10 or 100Mbps per second over
UTP, STP, or fiber-optic media.
Firewall is considered the first line of defense in protecting private information. For
better security, data can be encrypted. A system designed to prevent unauthorized
access to or from a private network. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent
unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet,
especially Intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the
firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified
security criteria.
G
Gateway
Group
A gateway links computers that use different data formats together.
Groups consist of several user machines that have similar characteristics such as being
in the same department.
H
HEX
Short for hexadecimal refers to the base-16 number system, which consists of 16
unique symbols: the numbers 0 to 9 and the letters A to F. For example, the decimal
number 15 is represented as F in the hexadecimal numbering system. The hexadecimal
system is useful because it can represent every byte (8 bits) as two consecutive
hexadecimal digits. It is easier for humans to read hexadecimal numbers than binary
numbers.
I
Intranet
Internet
Internet address
IP
IP address
ISP
This is a private network, inside an organization or company that uses the same
software you will find on the public Internet. The only difference is that an Intranet is
used for internal usage only.
The Internet is a globally linked system of computers that are logically connected based
on the Internet Protocol (IP). The Internet provides different ways to access private and
public information worldwide.
To participate in Internet communications and on Internet Protocol-based networks, a
node must have an Internet address that identifies it to the other nodes. All Internet
addresses are IP addresses
Internet Protocol is the standard that describes the layout of the basic unit of
information on the Internet (the packet) and also details the numerical addressing
format used to route the information. Your Internet service provider controls the IP
address of any device it connects to the Internet. The IP addresses in your network
must conform to IP addressing rules. In smaller LANs, most people will allow the DHCP
function of a router or gateway to assign the IP addresses on internal networks.
IP address is a 32-binary digit number that identifies each sender or receiver of
information that is sent in packets across the Internet. For example 80.80.80.69 is an IP
address. When you “call” that number, using any connection methods, you get
connected to the computer that “owns” that IP address.
ISP (Internet Service Provider) is a company that maintains a network that is linked to
the Internet by way of a dedicated communication line. An ISP offers the use of its
dedicated communication lines to companies or individuals who can’t afford the high
monthly cost for a direct connection.
J
JAVA
Java is a programming language that is specially designed for writing programs that can
be safely downloaded to your computer through the Internet without the fear of viruses.
- 78 -
It is an object-oriented multi-thread programming best for creating applets and
applications for the Internet, Intranet and other complex, distributed network.
L
LAN
Local Area Network a computer network that spans a relatively small area sharing
common resources. Most LANs are confined to a single building or group of buildings.
M
MJPEG
MPEG4
MJPEG (Motion JPEG) composes a moving image by storing each frame of a moving
picture sequence in JPEG compression, and then decompressing and displaying each
frame at rapid speed to show the moving picture.
MPEG4 is designed to enable transmission and reception of high-quality audio and
video over the Internet and next-generation mobile telephones.
N
NAT
Network
NWay Protocol
Network Address Translator generally applied by a router that makes many different IP
addresses on an internal network appear to the Internet as a single address. For routing
messages properly within your network, each device requires a unique IP address. But
the addresses may not be valid outside your network. NAT solves the problem. When
devices within your network request information from the Internet, the requests are
forwarded to the Internet under the router's IP address. NAT distributes the responses
to the proper IP addresses within your network.
A network consists of a collection of two or more devices, people, or components that
communicate with each other over physical or virtual media. The most common types of
network are:
LAN – (local area network): Computers are in close distance to one another. They are
usually in the same office space, room, or building.
WAN – (wide area network): The computers are in different geographic locations and
are connected by telephone lines or radio waves.
A network protocol that can automatically negotiate the highest possible transmission
speed between two devices.
P
PCM
PING
PPPoE
Protocol
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is a technique for converting analog audio signals into
digital form for transmission.
Packet Internet Groper, a utility used to determine whether a specific IP address is
accessible. It functions by sending a packet to the specified address and waits for a
reply. It is primarily used to troubleshoot Internet connections.
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE is a specification for connecting the users
on an Ethernet to the Internet through a common broadband medium, such as DSL or
cable modem. All the users over the Ethernet share a common connection.
Communication on the network is governed by sets of rules called protocols. Protocols
provide the guidelines devices use to communicate with each other, and thus they have
different functions. Some protocols are responsible for formatting and presenting and
presenting data that will be transferred from file server memory to the file server’s net
work adapter Others are responsible for filtering information between networks and
forwarding data to its destination. Still other protocols dictate how data is transferred
across the medium, and how servers respond to workstation requests and vice versa.
Common network protocols responsible for the presentation and formatting of data for a
network operating system are the Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) protocol or the
Internet Protocol (IP). Protocols that dictate the format of data for transferors the
medium include token-passing and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision
Detection (CSMA/CD), implemented as token-ring, ARCNET, FDDI, or Ethernet. The
Router Information Protocol (RIP),a part of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP) suite, forwards packets from one network to another using the same

network protocol.
R
RJ-45
Router
RTP
RTSP
RJ-45 connector is used for Ethernet cable connections.
A router is the network software or hardware entity in charge of routing packets
between networks.
RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) is a data transfer protocol defined to deliver live
media to the clients at the same time, which defines the transmission of video and
audio files in real time for Internet applications.
RTSP (Real-time Streaming Protocol) is the standard used to transmit stored media to
the client(s) at the same time, which provides client controls for random access to the
content stream.
S
Server
SIP
SMTP
SNMP
Station
Subnet mask
It is a simple computer that provides resources, such as files or other information.
SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) is a standard protocol that delivers the real-time
communication for Voice over IP (VoIP), which establishes sessions for features such
as audio and video conferencing.
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is used for Internet mail.
Simple Network Management Protocol. SNMP was designed to provide a common
foundation for managing network devices.
In LANs, a station consists of a device that can communicate data on the network. In
FDDI, a station includes both physical nodes and addressable logical devices.
Workstations, single-attach stations, dual-attach stations, and concentrators are FDDI
stations.
In TCP/IP, the bits used to create the subnet are called the subnet mask.
T
(TCP/IP)
Transceiver
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is a widely used transport protocol that
connects diverse computers of various transmission methods. It was developed y the
Department of Defense to connect different computer types and led to the development
of the Internet.
A transceiver joins two network segments together. Transceivers can also be used to
join a segment that uses one medium to a segment that uses a different medium. On a
10BASE-5 network, the transceiver connects the network adapter or other network
device to the medium. Transceivers also can be used on 10BASE-2 or 10BASE-T
networks to attach devices with AUI ports.
U
UDP
User Name
Utility
UTP
The User Datagram Protocol is a connectionless protocol that resides above IP in the
TCP/IP suite
The USERNAME is the unique name assigned to each person who has access to the
LAN.
It is a program that performs a specific task.
Unshielded twisted-pair. UTP is a form of cable used by all access methods. It consists
of several pairs of wires enclosed in an unshielded sheath.
