- Asynchronous Transfer Mode : A technology for the transfer of fixed-length "cells" of digital information through specialized cell switches built on top of optical transmission networks; increasingly obsolescent
- Circuit switching : Constituent electric circuit of a switching or digital processing system which receives, stores, or manipulates information in coded form to accomplish the specified objectives of the system.
- Control plane : Functions in a router that tell it how to direct packets through the forwarding plane; include routing protocols that draw the "map" of the network
- Datagram : A self-contained unit of data, containing a source and destination address analogous to a letter, which can be efficiently forwarded by routers
- Flow (Internet Protocol) : An association of a source Internet protocol address and one or more destinations, in a given direction of transmission
- Intermediate System-Intermediate System : An interior routing protocol capable of distributing address information from multiple address families; especially popular for large Internet Service Providers and homogeneous networks
- Internet Engineering Task Force : Internet standards body that operates on a consensus-based model.
- Internet Protocol Suite : The real-world set of networking protocols, with administrative and operational conventions, which populate the real-world working Internet
- Locality of networks : The assumption, in networking technologies, about the characteristics of the user space they support, and, as importantly, the user spaces they should ignore
- Nonbroadcast Multiaccess : A technique, in computer networks, where a group of "spoke" devices all connect to a common "hub", but the spokes cannot broadcast or multicast to one another
- Open Shortest Path First traffic engineering extensions : A set of extensions to the OSPF version 2 (i.e., for Internet Protocol version 4) routing protocol, intended to provide information for route computation that is optimized for creating overlays of Multi-Protocol Label Switching and Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching paths
- Packet switching : Network communications method that groups all transmitted data, irrespective of content, type, or structure into suitably-sized blocks, called packets.
- Resource Reservation Protocol : An end-to-end control (i.e., signaling) protocol used to reserve bandwidth from one edge of an Internet Protocol network to the other edge
- TELENET : An early data communications network, operational in the 1970s but using a technology with substantial differences from the Internet.
- Virtual private network : The emulation of a private Wide Area Network (WAN) facility using IP facilities, including the public Internet or private IP backbones.
- Voice over Internet Protocol : A family of standards that permits carrying voice telephony over Internet Protocol networks that handle both voice and data, instead of dedicated telephony networks.
