    NETCONF

    NETCONF is an IETF network management protocol that provides an administrator or network engineer with a secure way to configure a firewall, router, switch or other network device.

  • NetScaler (SDX)

    Citrix NetScaler SDX is a service delivery networking platform for enterprise and cloud datacenters. NetScaler SDX supports multiple NetScaler instances on a single hardware appliance.

  • network engineer

    A network engineer is a technology professional who has the necessary skills to plan, implement and support the computer networks that support in-house voice, data, video and wireless network services.   

  • network fabric

    Network fabric is an industry term that describes a network topology in which devices pass data to each other through interconnecting switches.

  • network functions virtualization (NFV)

    Network functions virtualization (NFV) is an initiative to virtualize network functions previously carried out by dedicated hardware.

  • network hypervisor

    A network hypervisor is a program that provides an abstraction layer for network hardware.  Network hypervisors allow network engineers to create virtual networks that are completely decoupled and independent from the underlying physical network.

  • network intelligence (NI)

    Network Intelligence (NI) is the capacity of a network to examine data packets continuously and in real time.

  • network-as-a-service (NaaS)

    Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) is a business model for delivering network services over the Internet on a pay-per-use or subscription basis.

  • Nexus 1000V (Cisco Nexus 1000V)

    The Cisco Nexus 1000V is a Cisco Nexus Operating System (NX-OS) switch rendered fully in software for multi-tenant services composed of both physical and virtual networking resources.

  • NFV MANO (network functions virtualization management and orchestration)

    NFV MANO (network functions virtualization management and orchestration), also called MANO, is an architectural framework for managing and orchestrating virtualized network functions (VNFs) and other software components.

  • NFVi (network functions virtualization infrastructure)

    NFVi (network functions virtualization infrastructure) is a pool of virtual and physical resources that enables the deployment of virtual network functions in carrier networks. Service providers use NFVi to create environments that enable NFV.

  • Nicira Inc.

    Nicira is a network virtualization and SDN (software-defined networking) company that Martin Casado, Nick McKeown and Scott Shenker founded in 2007.

  • Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (Nicira NVP)

    Nicira NVP is network virtualization software that manages an abstraction layer between end systems and the physical network infrastructure and enables the creation of independently operable virtual networks.

  • NOX

    NOX is an open source development platform for C++-based software-defined networking (SDN) control applications.

  • NVGRE (Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation)

    NVGRE (Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation) is a network virtualization method that uses encapsulation to create large numbers of virtual LANs (VLANs) for subnets that can extend across dispersed data centers and Layers 2 and 3.
