ARP vs DHCP: What is The Difference?

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) are two protocols used in associating IP addresses to host devices in a network. ARP is a protocol that is used to map an IP address to a physical machine (mac address) by sending a multicast message on a LAN and recording the mac address […]

UDP Vs ICMP: What is the Difference?

Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) are two communication protocols employed for the delivery of data in a network. ICMP operates at the network layer of the TCP/IP suite, assessing network performance and reporting errors in network traffic. It is commonly utilized with the ping and traceroute commands. The ping command

TCP vs. ICMP: What’s the difference?

Transport control protocol (TCP) and internet control message protocol (ICMP) are two communication protocols used for the transport of data between sender and receiver in a network. These two protocols work behind the scenes to ensure your online experience is seamless. In this post, we will walk you through the differences between TCP and ICMP,

Dynamic NAT vs. Static NAT: Comparison and Differences

Network Address Translation (NAT) comprises three main types, with static NAT and dynamic NAT being two of them. Static NAT is a form of address translation that establishes a permanent one-to-one mapping between an inside local IP address (private IP address) and an inside global IP address (public IP address). This mapping enables the private

MPLS vs. IP routing

MPLS and IP routing are two packet forwarding technologies used in a network circuit. MPLS is a layer 2.5 packet forwarding technology that uses labels to make its packet forwarding decisions. This label is layer 2 information and contains data about the destination of any packet encapsulated in it. Read more on: MPLS Network Architecture

4G Modulation vs. 5G Modulation

In this ever-evolving world of communication technology, modulation plays an important role in ensuring the successful transmission of signals from the sender to the receiver. Both 4G and 5G employ distinct modulation techniques to facilitate rapid and low-latency wireless communication. In this article, we delve into a comparison of 5G and 4G modulation techniques, aiming

MPLS Vs. E-LAN: What is the Difference?

MPLS and E-LAN are two networking technologies that aid in the distribution of packets in a network. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a layer 2.5 packet forwarding protocol that uses labels to efficiently forward data packets in a network. E-LAN, on the other hand, is a technology that interconnects different LANs in a Metropolitan area

MPLS Vs. Fiber: What is the Difference?

MPLS and Fiber are two transport technologies commonly used in networking. Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a layer 2.5 packet forwarding protocol that employs labels to efficiently forward data packets in a network. Fiber, on the other hand, is an Ethernet cable used for transmitting data packets from one end to another in a network.

Metro Ethernet vs Fiber: What is the Difference?

Metro Ethernet and Fiber are two wired technologies used in telecommunications. Metro Ethernet is an Ethernet transport network that utilizes either Fiber optics or copper cables to transmit data within a Metropolitan Area. On the other hand, Fiber refers to the cable itself used in transmitting internet or data from one end to another. Fiber

Leased line Vs. Broadband: Difference & Comparison

Leased line and Broadband are two important terms used to describe the types of service packages provided by an internet service provider. A leased line is a dedicated and fixed point-to-point connection that links two geographically separated sites, each equipped with their own Local Area Network (LAN). Leased lines are often confused with Dedicated internet. Though both of
