Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15.1)
Bluetooth wireless technology is built into a wide range of products helping to share different types of information wirelessly between two paired devices.

For serial communications, a current loop is a communication interface that uses current instead of voltage for signaling. Current loops can be used over moderately long distances (tens of kilometres), and can be interfaced with optically isolated links.

Firewall
Firewall is a hardware and programming tool set which controls and filters network packages passing through it in accordance with the specified rules. Its function is the protection of computer networks and separate knots from unauthorized access.

Hub
Hub is a network device destined for the connection of several Ethernet units into the common network segment.

IEEE-488 / GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus)
IEEE-488 General purpose interface bus and appropriate protocol are widely used in hardware-software systems for the connection of PC and work station with measurement instruments (e.g. in data acquisition systems).

IP address
An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.

IC
IC (Inter-Integrated Circuit; I2C or IIC) is a synchronous, multi-master/multi-slave (controller/target), packet switched, single-ended, serial communication bus invented in 1982 by Philips Semiconductors. It is widely used for attaching lower-speed peripheral ICs to processors and microcontrollers in short-distance, intra-board communication.

LAN (Local Area Network)
LAN is Local Area Network of a group of computers and/or any other devices placed at a relatively short distance and connected by specialized cables in order to exchange data and use common resources, such as printers, Internet access etc.

LiFi
The term LiFi, which is short for Light Fidelity, was coined by one of the pioneers in the technology, Professor Harald Haas during a TEDx TALK in the year 2011. It was named after its predecessor, and the currently prevailing technology, WiFi, which stands for Wireless Fidelity.

MAC address (Media Access Control address)
A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment.
