Networking Acronyms

My new role has me paying attention to the Network side of cloud a lot more than I had to in the past.

This is my collection of recent acronyms and their meanings.

I will continue to update this one as I come across additional relevant terms and acronyms.

  1. Thanks for the posting! I disagree that CDP is “part 1” of PXE. DHCP, the assignment of an IP Address and location of the TFTP/next-boot server should be part 1. CDP is just an information exchange protocol that lives below Layer3 (IP addresses). CDP is the Cisco version of LLDP.
