• Ethernet

    Frame-based computer networking technology used in local area networks (LANs). Ethernet defines wiring and signaling for the physical layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control (MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized as IEEE 802.3.

    It has become the most widespread LAN technology since the 1990s.

  • WEP

    Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard to provide the same level of security as the one of a wired LAN.

    WEP provides security by encrypting data sent wirelessly so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one end point to another.

    WEP is not regarded as very secure in the industry. 

  • AppleTalk

    AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of network protocols developed by Apple. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) but is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP.

  • Halftone

    An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the density of dots in a given area.

    Highly colored areas consist of a large density of dots, while lighter areas consist of a lower density of dots.
