An internetwork routing architecture that can be applied to routing both within a single routing domain and among multiple routing domains. Nimrod works by separating the identification of communicating entities, called endpoints, from any topological information. It uses Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs) to specify and identify entities connected to the network. The subsystems which are covered by Nimrod include routing information distribution, route selection, and user traffic handling. Nimrod is equally applicable to both the TCP/IP and OSI environments.
In Northbridge/Southbridge chipset architecture designs, the Northbridge is the chip or chips that connect a CPU to memory, the PCI bus, Level 2 cache and AGP activities. The Northbridge chips communicate with the CPU through the FSB. The Northbridge chip is one of two chips that control the functions of the chipset. The other is […]

To transmit a single message to a select group of recipients. A simple example of multicasting is sending an e-mail message to a mailing list. Teleconferencing and videoconferencing also use multicasting, but require more robust protocols and networks. Standards are being developed to support multicasting over a TCP/IP network such as the Internet. These standards, […]
