A.3 Glossary of Terms
NUMBERS
10BASE-T
10BASE-T is Ethernet over UTP Category III, IV, or V unshielded twisted-pair media.
100BASE-TX
The two-pair twisted-media implementation of 100BASE-T is called 100BASE-TX.
A
ADPCM
Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation, a new technology improved from PCM, which
encodes analog sounds to digital form.
AMR
AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) is an audio data compression scheme optimized for speech
coding, which is adopted as the standard speech codec by 3GPP.
Applet
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 form that
the applet was sent.
ASCII
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.
ARP
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.
AVI
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
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.
Connection
In networking, two devices establish a connection to communicate with each other.
D
DHCP
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.
DNS
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
- 52 -
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
Fast Ethernet, also called 100BASE-T, operates at 10 or 100Mbps per second over UTP, STP, or
fiber-optic media.
Firewall
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
A gateway links computers that use different data formats together.
Group
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
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.
Internet
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.
Internet address
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
IP
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
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
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. 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
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
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 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.
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.
NWay Protocol
A network protocol that can automatically negotiate the highest possible transmission speed
between two devices.
P
PCM
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is a technique for converting analog audio signals into digital
form for transmission.
PING

It functions by sending a packet to the specified address and waits for a reply. It is primarily
used to troubleshoot Internet connections.
PPPoE
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.
Protocol
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).
- 54 -
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
RJ-45 connector is used for Ethernet cable connections.
Router
A router is the network software or hardware entity charged with routing packets between
networks.
RTP

station includes both physical nodes and addressable logical devices. Workstations, singleattach stations, dual-attach stations, and concentrators are FDDI stations.
Subnet mask
In TCP/IP, the bits used to create the subnet are called the subnet mask.
T
(TCP/IP)
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.
Transceiver
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.
