Node (networking)

nodenodesnetwork node
The transmission links connect the nodes together.
In telecommunications networks, a node (Latin nodus, ‘knot’) is either a redistribution point or a communication endpoint.

Circuit switching

circuit switchedcircuit-switchedcircuit-switched network
The nodes use circuit switching, message switching or packet switching to pass the signal through the correct links and nodes to reach the correct destination terminal.
Circuit switching is a method of implementing a telecommunications network in which two network nodes establish a dedicated communications channel (circuit) through the network before the nodes may communicate.

Computer network

A computer network is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.

Network address

Each terminal in the network usually has a unique address so messages or connections can be routed to the correct recipients.
A network address is an identifier for a node or host on a telecommunications network.

Telephone network

A telephone network is a telecommunications network used for telephone calls between two or more parties.

Message switching

The nodes use circuit switching, message switching or packet switching to pass the signal through the correct links and nodes to reach the correct destination terminal.
Message switching systems are nowadays mostly implemented over packet-switched or circuit-switched data networks.

Wide area network

networks can range from a local area network (LAN) to a wide area network (WAN).
A wide area network (WAN) is a telecommunications network that extends over a large geographical area for the primary purpose of computer networking.

Overlay network

A telecommunications network is a collection of terminal nodes in which links are connected so as to enable telecommunication between the terminals.

Edholm's law

Edholm's law, proposed by and named after Phil Edholm in 2004, holds that the bandwidth of telecommunication networks double every 18 months, which has proven to be true since the 1970s.
Edholm's law, proposed by and named after Phil Edholm, refers to the observation that the three categories of telecommunication, namely wireless (mobile), nomadic (wireless without mobility) and wired networks (fixed), are in lockstep and gradually converging.

Telecommunication

A telecommunications network is a collection of terminal nodes in which links are connected so as to enable telecommunication between the terminals. The MOSFET (MOS transistor) was invented by Mohamed M. Atalla and Dawon Kahng at Bell Labs in 1959, and went on to become the basic building block of modern telecommunications technology.
20th- and 21st-century technologies for long-distance communication usually involve electrical and electromagnetic technologies, such as telegraph, telephone, and teleprinter, networks, radio, microwave transmission, fiber optics, and communications satellites.

The MOSFET (MOS transistor) was invented by Mohamed M. Atalla and Dawon Kahng at Bell Labs in 1959, and went on to become the basic building block of modern telecommunications technology.
In 1972, he founded Atalla Corporation, and filed a patent for a remote PIN security system over telecommunications networks, a precursor to telephone banking, Internet security and e-commerce.

MOSFET

metal-oxide-semiconductorMOSMOS integrated circuit
The MOSFET (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor) is the most important factor enabling the rapid increase in bandwidth. Continuous MOSFET scaling, along with various advances in MOS technology, has enabled both Moore's law (transistor counts in integrated circuit chips doubling every two years) and Edholm's law (communication bandwidth doubling every 18 months).
Advances in MOS technology has been the most important contributing factor in the rapid rise of network bandwidth in telecommunication networks, with bandwidth doubling every 18 months, from bits per second to terabits per second (Edholm's law).
