Lesson 4 E-Learning Point 1. The Main terms of a net Net is a complex of HW and peripherals, SW and CW for interactive communication between users. HW and peripherals for the network are: PC (personal computer) Netware Point 1. The Main terms of a net Netware are: Architecture Interface (modem, net-card, converter, radio-modem, transmitter-receiver architecture for satellites and etc.) Communication architecture (repeater, host, router, gate, hub and etc.) Point 1. The Main terms of a net CW are:Wire (telephone lines, coaxial cable, twisted pair, optical cable)Wireless (radio –and infrared-waves, satellite communication) Point 1. The Main terms of a net The principle of net interconnection is“client-server”. Point 1. The Main terms of a net Station (host, node) is a device connected to the net and used for information interchange. (computer or a peripheral device) Server is a net node providing its recourses to other stations. (They are Web-server, mail-server, FTP-server, NNTP-server, DNS-server.) Client (work station) is a net node using net recourses. Point 1. The Main terms of a net NET SW is: OS (operating system) is a program complex handling the net processes. Applications are programs using net capabilities.
Point 2. The Main terms of Internet Internet is a global net having a common address space and using TCP/IP. Protocol is a rule complex regulating the information exchange between stations. TCP (Transmission control protocol) is a protocol handling the data delivering. IP (Internet protocol) is a protocol used between nodes in the Internet.
Point 2. The Main terms of Internet Bandwidth is a data transmission capability Data transmission rate is a time of delivery the information. Traffic is an information volume transmitting in the network. Provider is an organization giving an opportunity to connect to the Internet and to get IP-addresses.
