Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
A protocol used for the communication between a 
network management application and the devices it 
is managing. The network management application is 
called the SNMP manager; the devices it manages 
have implemented SNMP agents. Not only the 
MP.11/a but also almost every network device 
contains a SNMP agent. The manageable objects of 
a device are arranged in a Management Information 
Base, also called MIB. The Simple Network 
Management Protocol (SNMP) allows managers and 
agents to communicate for accessing these objects. 
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)
The Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) can be used to 
create redundant networks (“hot standby”) and to 
prevent loops. If enabled, spanning tree prevents 
loops by disabling redundant links; if a link fails, it 
can automatically enable a backup link. 
Subnet Mask
A subnet mask is a bit mask that defines which part 
of an IP address is used for the network part and 
which part for a host (computer) number. A subnet 
mask is like an IP address represented by four 
numbers in the range 0 - 255 separated by dots. 
When the IP address has a subnet 
mask of, the network part is 172.17.23 
of the host number is 14. See also IP address.   
Tables hold parameters for several related items. For 
example, you can add several potential managers to 
the SNMP IP access table. Tables can be displayed 
using with the Web Interface, command line interface 
and SNMP. 
Topology is the physical layout of network 
components (cable, stations, gateways, hubs, and so 
A trap is used within SNMP to report an unexpected 
or unallowable condition.   
Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP)
Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a lightweight 
protocol for transferring files that is like a simple form 
of File Transfer Protocol (FTP). A TFTP client is 
implemented on the MP.11/a; using the upload and 
download commands, the MP.11/a can respectively 
copy a file to or from a TFTP server. TFTP server 
software is provided on the MP.11/a CD-ROM. 
Uploading a file means copying a file from a network 
device to a remote server. In case of the MP.11/a 
uploading means transferring a file from the MP.11/a 
to a TFTP server. See also download.   
Upstream means a data stream from the end users 
to the central part of the network. See also 
The Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm is the 
standard encryption method used to protect wireless 
communication from eavesdropping.  
The Wireless Outdoor Router Protocol (WORP) was 
designed to optimize long distance links and 
multipoint networks with Hidden Node effect to 
eliminate collisions and loss of bandwidth.
