    comfort noise generator (CNG)

    A comfort noise generator (CNG) is a program used to generate background noise artificially for voice communications during periods of silence that occur during the course of conversation... (Continued)

  • D

    dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM)

    Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) is a technology that puts data from different sources together on an optical fiber, with each signal carried at the same time on its own separate light wavelength.

  • DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer)

    A DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) is a network device, usually at a telephone company central office, that receives signals from multiple customer Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) connections and puts the signals on a high-speed backbone line using multiplexing techniques.

  • E

    Ethernet as a service (EaaS)

    Ethernet as a service (EaaS) is the use of high-bandwidth, fiber optic media such as Packet over SONET (PoS) to deliver 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or even 1000 Mbps Ethernet service to one or more customers across a common bidirectional broadband infrastructure... (Continued)

  • Evolved Packet Core (EPC)

    Evolved Packet Core (EPC) is a flat architecture that provides a converged voice and data networking framework to connect users on a Long-Term Evolutio (LTE) network.

  • F

    femtocell

    A femtocell is a wireless access point that improves cellular reception inside a home or office building. The device, which resembles a wireless router, essentially acts as a VOIP repeater.

  • fiber optics (optical fiber)

    Fiber optics, or optical fiber, refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light pulses along a glass or plastic strand or fiber.

  • fiber to the x (FTTx)

    Fiber to the x (FTTx) is a collective term for various optical fiber delivery topologies that are categorized according to where the fiber terminates

  • H

  • I

    Internet metering

    Internet metering is a service model in which an Internet service provider (ISP) tracks the customer's use of bandwidth and charges accordingly. Typically, the customer selects a service package with a flat rate up to a specified limit and pays, probably per gigabyte, beyond that limit... (Continued)

  • IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)

    The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is a concept for an integrated network of telecommunications carriers that would facilitate the use of IP (Internet Protocol) for packet communications in all known forms over wireless or landline... (Continued)

  • IPTV (Internet Protocol television)

    IPTV (Internet Protocol television) is a service that provides television programming and other video content using the TCP/IP protocol suite as opposed to traditional cable or satellite signals.

  • M

    Metro Ethernet

    Metro Ethernet is the use of Carrier Ethernet technology in metropolitan area networks (MANs)... (Continued)

  • millimeter wave (MM wave)

    Millimeter wave (also millimeter band) is the band of spectrum between 30 gigahertz (Ghz) and 300 Ghz. Researchers are testing 5G wireless broadband technology on millimeter wave spectrum.

  • multichassis multilink PPP (MMP)
