HTTPS
Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol for encrypting information over the Internet
The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed,
collaborative, hypermedia information systems.[1] HTTP is the foundation of data communication for
the World Wide Web.
HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the main markup language for displaying web pages and other
information that can be displayed in a web browser.
HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html>),
within the web page content. HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like <h1> and </h1>, although some
tags, known as empty elements, are unpaired, for example <img>. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the
second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags). In between these tags web
designers can add text, tags, comments and other types of text-based content
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a widely used communications
protocol for secure communication over a computer network, with especially wide deployment on
the Internet. Technically, it is not a protocol in itself; rather, it is the result of simply layering the Hypertext
Transfer Protocol (HTTP) on top of the SSL/TLS protocol, thus adding the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to
standard HTTP communications.

organization's intranet that is extended to users outside the organization, usually partners, vendors, and
suppliers, in isolation from all other Internet users. In contrast,business-to-consumer (B2C) models involve
known servers of one or more companies, communicating with previously unknown consumer users.

An intranet is a computer network that uses Internet Protocol technology to share information, operational
systems, or computing services within an organization. The term is used in contrast tointernet, a network
between organizations, and instead refers to a network within an organization

sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user
browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to
notify the website of the user's previous activity.[1] Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for
websites to remember the state of the website or activity the user had taken in the past. This can include
clicking particular buttons, logging in, or a record of which pages were visited by the user even months or

SDSL Symmetric digital subscriber line
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is a type of digital

subscriber line technology

At the telephone exchange the line generally terminates at a digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM)
where another frequency splitter separates the voice band signal for the conventional phone network. Data carried by
the ADSL are typically routed over the telephone company's data network and eventually reach a conventional Internet
Protocol network.
Symmetric High-speed Digital Subscriber Line (SHDSL) is a form of digital subscriber line (DSL), a data
communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than a
conventional voiceband modem can provide. Compared to ADSL, SHDSL employs TC-PAM modulation and frequencies
that include those used by analog plain old telephone service (POTS) to provide equal transmit and receive (i.e.
symmetric) data rates. As such, a frequency splitter, or DSL filter, cannot be used to allow a telephone line to be shared by
both an SHDSL service and a POTS service at the same time. Support of symmetric data rates made SHDSL a popular

"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network"network (VPN), web hosting and other data services.
Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL or VHDSL)[1] is a digital subscriber line (DSL) technology providing
faster[vague] data transmission over a single flat untwisted or twisted pair of copper wires (up to 52 Mbit/s downstream and
16 Mbit/s upstream),[2] and on coaxial cable (up to 85 Mbit/s down- and upstream);[3] using the frequency band from
25 kHz to 12 MHz.[4] These rates mean that VDSL is capable of supporting applications such as high-definition
television, as well as telephone services (voice over IP) and general Internet access, over a single connection. VDSL
is deployed over existing wiring used foranalogHYPERLINK

"WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of
the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless
broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL".

MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control.
1G - First Generation 2.5G ... 4G - Fourth Generation ... FTMD - Full Track Music Download
A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for
communications on the physical network segment. MAC addresses are used for numerous network technologies and
most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the Media Access
Control protocol sub-layer of the OSI reference model.
MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface card (NIC) and are stored in its
hardware, the card's read-only memory, or some other firmware mechanism. If assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC
address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number and may be referred to as the burned-in
address. It may also be known as anEthernet hardware address (EHA), hardware address or physical address.

19
A network

node may have multiple NICs and will then have one unique MAC address per NIC.

MAC addresses are formed according to the rules of one of three numbering name spaces managed by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE): MAC-48, EUI-48, and EUI-64. The IEEE claims trademarks on the
names EUI-48 and EUI-64, in which EUI is an abbreviation for Extended Unique Identifier.
The standard (IEEE

802) format for printing MAC-48 addresses in human-friendly form is six groups of

two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens (-) or colons (:), in transmission order (e.g.01-23-45-67-89-ab or
01:23:45:67:89:ab ). This form is also commonly used for EUI-64. Another convention used by networking equipment
uses three groups of four hexadecimal digits separated by dots (.) (e.g. 0123.4567.89ab ), again in transmission order.[1]
