A modulator-demodulator is a device used to transmit digital data over an analog channel. It modulates/demodulates a carrier signal in order to encode digital information onto it.
A modem is typically used to transmit computer data over POTS phone lines.
File format used to exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, originally
introduced by Microsoft Excel, has become a de facto standard throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an networking protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over TCP/IP.

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a standard that allows devices on a home network to share information with each other.
It is typically used to store media files (photos, music, videos...) on a central server and allow devices like connected TVs or music palyers to access these media files directly through the network.
A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done during the bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on them. The BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers as well as other networked devices (printers...) to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
IEEE 1284 is a parallel port standard of conectivity interface developed by the Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The term "1284-B" is a connector end of a parallel cable which is attached to other components (i-e: a printer).
The CTA is the primary usier interface element (button, link, form...) that asks the user to take the action the website would like its visitors to take. This results in a "Conversion".
Examples: "Buy now" button, "Sign up", "Download now", "Subscribe here"...
The Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an non-profit organisation involved in advance development of all technologies related to electricity.
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is the hardware which captures the image in scanners and digital cameras.
