One of the divisions, rings, or joints into which many animal bodies are divided; a somite; a metamere; a somatome.
A Segment is one single TCP data package. See also: Datagram
A bounded section of the network. A segment is usually bounded by bridges, routers, or switches.
A section of a LAN that is connected to the rest of the network using a switch or bridge.
A length of ThinWire Ethernet cable made up of one or more cable sections connected with barrel connectors or T-connectors.
a part of the telephone cables
The small rings that surround the length of the earthworm’s body. They are simply folds in the skin.
This is the most detailed definition of infrastructure services provided by a project. See Subsector, Sector, and Technology/Fuel. The segments by subsector are: Electricity - Generation, transmission, and distribution Natural - Gas Transmission and distribution Telecommunications - Fixed access, mobile access, and long distance Airports - Runway and terminal Seaports - Channel dredging and terminal Railways - Fixed assets, freight, intercity passenger, and urban passenger Toll-roads - Bridge, highway, and tunnel Potable water - Water treatment and water distribution Sewerage - Sewerage treatment and sewerage collection
1. A portion of a LAN separated from the rest of the LAN by a bridge. 2. An uninterrupted length of Ethernet cable within a network.
(1) An electronic path between two network devices. (2) In structured networking, the physical set of end stations (both users and elements) that form an Ethernet collision domain. The boundaries of a collision domain are defined by bridges or routers.(3) An Ethernet backplane path in a hub, more precisely known as a backplane segment. (4) A port or group of ports defined by their connection together. Ethernet segments can be isolated, local, backplane, or cascaded. Token ring segments can be isolated, local, or backplane.
In Ethernet, a single section of bus-type transmission media. In token ring, a single ring of transmission media containing cables, components, and lobes. In FDDI, a single dual ring of transmission media.
Refers to a section of cable on a network. In Ethernet networks, two types of segments are defined. A populated or trunk segment is a network cable that has one or more nodes attached to it. A link segment is a cable that connects a computer to an interconnecting device, such as a repeater or concentrator, or connects a interconnecting device to another interconnecting device.
Section of a network that is bounded by bridges, or switches; dividing an Ethernet into multiple segments is a common way to increase bandwidth on a LAN.
An electronically continuous portion of a network, usually consisting of the same coaxial cable with multiple devices attached.
A bus LAN term meaning an electrically continuous piece of the bus. Segments can be joined together using repeaters or bridges.
One portion of the bus of an Ethernet LAN, consisting of standard Ethernet coaxial cable up to 500 meters or thinnet (RG58) coaxial cable up to 185 meters.
A cable made up of one or more cable sections and connections joined together to produce the equivalence of a continuous cable.
A network segment. A subnet. In this discussion, a "network segment" is a collection of hosts and/or layer 2 networking devices bounded by routers.
In the IBM Token-Ring Network, a section of cable between components or devices. A segment may consist of a single patch cable, several patch cables that are connected, or a combination of building cable and patch cables that are connected.
A group of devices such as PCs, servers or printers that are connected by network equipment. On Ethernet segments, computers can be connected together by hubs, and signals broadcast on that segment are heard by all stations attached to it. If the segment is interconnected to another segment with a bridge or router, it is possible to send packets between those segments. Network segments joined with bridges or routers form internetworks. A segment is often called a subnetwork. Also see Bridge Ethernet Hub Internetwork Network Packet PC Router Server
With Intel InBusiness products, we mean the length of cable on a network between two terminators.
A segment is a piece of network wire bounded by bridges, routers, repeaters or terminators.
1. Section of a network that is bounded by bridges, routers, or switches. 2. In a LAN using a bus topology, a segment is a continuous electrical circuit that is often connected to other such segments with repeaters. 3. Term used in the TCP specification to describe a single transport layer unit of information. The terms datagram, frame, message, and packet are also used to describe logical information groupings at various layers of the OSI reference model and in various technology circles.
