Networking terms and abbreviations
Service Location Protocol. A method of organizing and locating the
resources (such as printers, disk drives, databases, e-mail directories,
and schedulers) in a network. Using SLP, networking applications can
discover the existence, location and configuration of networked
With Service Location Protocol, client applications are 'User Agents'
and services are advertised by 'Service Agents'. The User Agent
issues a multicast 'Service Request' (SrvRqst) on behalf of the client
application, specifying the services required. The User Agent will
receive a Service Reply (SrvRply) specifying the location of all
services in the network which satisfy the request.
For larger networks, a third entity, called a 'Directory Agent', receives
registrations from all available Service Agents. A User Agent sends a
unicast request for services to a Directory Agent (if there is one) rather
than to a Service Agent.
(SLP version 2, RFC2608, updating RFC2165)
Structure of Management Information. A hierarchical tree structure for
information that underlies Management Information Bases (MIBs),
and is used by the SNMP protocol. Defined in RFC1155 and RFC1442
SMT (802.11)
Station ManagemenT. The object class in the 802.11 MIB that
provides the necessary support at the station to manage the
processes in the station such that the station may work cooperatively
as a part of an IEEE 802.11 network. The four branches of the 802.11
MIB are:
o dot11smt - objects related to station management and local
o dot11mac - objects that report/configure on the status of various
MAC parameters
o dot11res - Objects that describe available resources
o dot11phy - Objects that report on various physical items.
