For the full list from Tyler, Caleb, and Daniel : Chapter 7 Vocabulary
38. Power-line network: The use of the infrastructure already here by using lines typically used to transmit power to also transmit data using AC technology and frequency modulation.
39. Repeater: A device that amplifies a signal to increase its range. Used in both wired and wireless applications.
40. Router: A device that handles communications at a gateway between one or more local area networks and WAN.
41. Server: A computer on a network that provides resources.
42. Service set identifier (SSID): The identification of a Wireless network set by the access point.
43. Switch: A device that connects between a LAN. It filters and forwards data.
44. Throughput: The observed actual data speeds a connection can manage.
45. Transceiver: "transmitter-receiver," It is a device that transmits and receives signals, and can be both Analog and Digital.
46. Transmission media: The material through the signal travels. Whether it is copper cable, or the air through radio waves.
47. Twisted-pair cable: The twisted pair design cancels out electromagnetic interference to maintain a quality of signal. Invented by Alexander Graham Bell.
48. Unshielded twisted-pair cable: The most common solution for local telephone and ethernet applications.
49/50. WAN: Wide area network: A network that connects many nodes from outside just one Metropolitan Area network or local Area Network.
51. Wi-Fi: Wireless technology that uses IEEE 802.11 standards to transmit data through a network. Works on 2.4 Ghz UHF and 5 Ghz SHF radio bands.
52. Wired Ethernet network: Typically a local area network using a wired connection of UTP cable.
53. Wireless access point (WAP): It is a device that may also be a router, that is a transceiver for Wi-Fi networks.
54: Wireless Ethernet network: Nodes on the network may be connected by a combination of wired ethernet connections or a wireless connection through an access point.
55. Wireless network: All nodes on the network are communicating using wireless technology such as WiFi of LTE.
56. Wireless network adapter: An adapter card for a computer or device that allows it to utilize wireless networks in the area.
57. Wireless router/gateway: A router with a built-in access point that now has the capability to assign IP addresses and route packets through both wired and wireless connections.
