identifier included to enable the frame header to work with the Data Link layer
sends packets across all available computers on the network
(Novell Ethernet) does not include a Layer 2 Data Link identifier
the configuration information that determines where and how a message will be sent or received.
(Multilink trunking) binds ports together to allow fault tolerance or greater throughput
combining the bandwidth from two ore more Ethernet links
allows larger number of protocols, a better Ethernet_802.2
uses two or more channels to move data
(Synchronous Optical Network) transfers multiple digital bit streams over fiber-optic
(Network Fault Tolerance) bonding technique that provides network redundancy
ad hoc wireless network
does not rely on a pre existing infrastructure
(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance) nodes attempt to avoid collisions by transmitting only when the channel is sensed to be "idle".
(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection) used most notably in local area networking using early Ethernet technology.
content-based access method
accessing a network in which different nodes compete to see which node can send out its packet first
(Ethernet II) can be used directly by the IP
MAC address filtering
only a pre-programmed MAC address is allowed access to a specific WAP
(Ethernet DIX) can be used directly by the IP
specific subrange of radio frequencies that has been set aside within 2.4 GHz
a signal that has a very narrow frequency range
transports multiple signals and traffic types.
(Redundant Array of Independent Nodes) protects data stored at the file-system level by providing redundancy across network nodes
(Small Office Home Office)
bonding method to increase link speed of multiple network cables and ports
(Ethernet_802.3) does not include a Layer 2 Data Link identifier
(Service Set Identifier) Network name for wireless
transmitting a packet that will be received by every device on the network
increases network throughput by using two ore more NICs
