A data transmission medium shared by nodes and used for communication among these nodes. A link forms the basis for networking these nodes.
Network communications channel consisting of a circuit or transmission path and all related equipment between a sender and a receiver. Most often used to refer to a WAN connection. Sometimes referred to as a line or a transmission link.
For Fibre Channel, it is a connection between two nodes, each having at least one N_Port (or the other end could be an F-Port), interconnected by a pair of optical or copper links, one inbound and one outbound.

The physical or logical connection between two devices in a network.
Same as arc, the line segments that join nodes together.
a light indicating that a good connection is present, as in "there is a link between the modem and the router." oad coil - A load coil is an inductor placed on the local loop by the phone company. Coils are generally placed starting at 3.000 feet in 6.000 feet intervals to suppress exactly the signal that DSL modems need to transmit high speed data on -- high frequency. The effect of a load coil is similar, from the perspective of the DSL equipment, to adding 20k feet to the line length. No DSL equipment now works through load coils. oop telephone wire, also called a pair. The local loop is the term for the line between your house and the local switching center. Since telephone travels on twisted pair, you can imagine one phone line to your house as a big loop of wire, hence the name.
widget that defines the relationship between two table views by describing which columns or widgets connect the table views, the type of line-server or sequential, and which table view is the parent and child. Links are needed by the transaction manager to perform its processing: if a screen contains more than one table view, and they are not linked, they will not be included in any command processing.
A communications path between two nodes in a network.
A connection between two related pieces of information. Generally, a link can be considered a cross reference to another point of information. Desktop infobases support several types of links, the most common being Jump Links, Popup Links, and Query Links.
To connect two or more resources or systems so that the output of one becomes input to another on a recurring basis, or directly affects its performance.
A generic term referring to a connection between two end points.
A single transmission span connecting public or private switching equipment.
The entire span between two optical devices. Includes all cable, connections, and splices.
Link is a short, convenient word for "prominence saddle". Mountains can be said to be "linked" to their parent mountains by means of the col between the two of them. For example, Resplendent is linked to its parent Mount Robson by the Resplendent-Robson Col. The saddle itself is the "link" or "connection" between the two. It is useful to have a short word like "link" in order to discuss the methodology for determining prominences. Eg: Mount Robson is more highly linked to peaks in the USA than it is to Mount Waddington."
The term usually refers to a path between two IP addressable host s with no other such host s in between. A link is typically visualized as a direct physical connection between two computers or routers. If one delves below the network layer, however, you'll find a more complex telecommunications infrastructure. For example, a DSL link between your computer and your service provider's router may look like a single hop, but may include an ethernet switch, two DSL modems, and one or more ATM routers. This hidden complexity can become important when ascertaining how a path's characteristics may affect transport performance.
A link is a dual simplex (simultaneous bi-directional) transmission path between a pair of network elements such as nodes (HCAs or TCAs) or switches. Link hardware is spec’d as dual simplex, which means that send and receive wires each have their own grounds and transmit data unidirectionally and independently. The more common simultaneous bi-directional method is "full duplex." In full duplex hardware, both paths share a ground wire. Telephones are full duplex, while two-way radios ("walkie talkies") are wireless half—duplex. Both Ethernet and PCI are half—duplex, with one "talker" at a time.
A communications circuit or transmission path connecting two points
A transmission path between two stations, channels or parts of a communication system. For example, in a common control switching system, a link is a path which interconnects customer lines.
A path for data communications.
To connect cells on two different sheets so that data entered or calculated on one appears on the other.
A link is a uniquely characterised, explicit, directed connection between (parts of) modules that represents one or more different kinds of relevant relations between (parts of) modules or (parts of) the information units underlying those modules. Comment: See section 3.1.2 for the abstract definition. Types of relations that can be represented in links in articles on experimental sciences are given in section 4.3, and on experimental molecular dynamics in general in section A.3.
Physical connection between two nodes in a network; can consist of a data communication circuit or a direct channel (cable) connection. For example, Digital high capacity links conditioned for 1.544 megabits per second are called 1.5Mbps Links, when terminated on the POT bay at the CLEC's Collocation presence in the local exchange carrier's central office where the end user is served.
Another name for a connection. Sometimes refers to a physical line.
The combination of the link connection and the link stations that joins adjacent nodes in a network; for example, a serial-by-bit connection under the control of synchronous data link control (SDLC). Synonymous with data link. A link connection is the physical medium of transmission; for example, a telephone wire or a microwave beam. A link includes the physical medium of transmission, the protocol, and associated communication devices and programming; it is both logical and physical.
One inbound fiber and one outbound fiber connected to a port.

A link is the capability of transparently carrying information between two Nodes in a network. It is also a topology object representing the graph between two addressable points in a network. It is a Managed Object . source: EU-P103 domain: Information Model usage: EU-P103
The link schemata must be metaphorically interpreted to apply to abstract objects or connections, since there is no actual physical bond of the required sort to relate the objects. Links in our spatial and temporal experience sharwe a common schematic structure. It consists of two entities connected by a bonding structure.
A communications connection that is used to transmit data from a source to a destination (for example, a T1 line). See also Access Link and Link Rate.
A facility or medium over which nodes communicate at the link layer. A link underlies the network layer.
An end-to-end transmission path provided by the cabling infrastructure. Cabling links include all cables and connecting Equipment and work area cables are not included as part of a link.
Something that joins two or more things. In the Xpresso Editor window, links are the thin "wires" that join the Input and Output Ports of the Nodes.
In SNA, the combination of the link connection and the link stations joining network nodes, for example a System/370(TM) channel and its associated protocols or a serial-by-bit connection under the control of Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC). A link connection is the physical medium of transmission. A link, however, is both logical and physical. Synonymous with data link.

an electrical or fiber optic connection between a network station and a concentrator or between two concentrators.

Communication path between two neighbors. A link is up when communication is possible between the two end points.
It is the means of connection between things linked in series.
In telecommunications a link is the communications channel that connects two or more communicating devices. This link may be an actual physical link or it may be a logical link link that uses one or more actual physical links. When the link is a logical link the type of physical link should always be specified (e.g., data link, uplink, downlink, fiber optic link, point-to-point link, etc.)
