List Options Option Definition Unit of Measure
End point device A device that functions as either an originator or destination for network traffic passed through Network Equipment. Examples of end point devices include computers, servers, set-top boxes, IP-capable televisions, IP phones, etc. For the purposes of this specification, an endpoint device is not considered network equipment. None
Energy efficient ethernet Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) is a technology which enables reduced power consumption of Ethernet interfaces during times of low data throughput. Specified by IEEE 802.3az. None
Full network connectivity The ability of an Endpoint Device to maintain network presence while in Sleep Mode or another low power mode (LPM) of equal or lower power consumption and intelligently wake when further processing is required (including occasional processing required to maintain network presence). Presence of the Endpoint Device, its network services and applications is maintained even though the Endpoint Device is in a LPM. From the vantage point of the network, an End Point Device with full network connectivity that is in LPM is functionally equivalent to an idle End Point Device with respect to common applications and usage models. Full network connectivity in LPM is not limited to a specific set of protocols but can cover applications installed after initial installation. Also referred to as Ònetwork proxyÓ functionality and as described in the Ecma-393 standard. a) Network Proxy - Base Capability: To maintain addresses and presence on the network while in LPM, the system handles IPv4 ARP and IPv6 NS/ND. b) Network Proxy - Full Capability: While in LPM, the system supports Base Capability, c) Network Proxy - Remote Wake: While in LPM, the system is capable of remotely waking upon request from outside the local network. Includes Base Capability. d) Network Proxy - Service Discovery/Name Services: While in LPM, the system allows for advertising host services and network name. Includes Base Capability. None
Link rate The maximum PHY bit rate possible on a particular link (e.g., 1000BASE-T Ethernet supports 1 Gb/s in each direction [2 Gb/s total]; IEEE 802.11g supports 54 Mb/s total). None
None None None
Not applicable Not applicable None
Other Other None
Physical data port An integrated physical connection point primarily intended to accept non- IP data. For the purposes of this specification, a port must support one of the following media types to fit this definition: a) Universal Serial Bus (USB); b) Firewire; c) Thunderbolt; d) SATA; e) SCSI; or f) RS-232. None
Physical network port An integrated physical connection point primarily intended to accept IP or similar traffic via a cable. For the purposes of this specification, a port must support one of the following media types to fit this definition: a) Twisted Pair Copper (Ethernet, DSL); b) Coaxial Cable (DOCSIS); or c) Fiber Optic. None
Power over ethernet A technology which enables transfer of electrical power, along with data, to network end point devices through an Ethernet cable. Currently specified by IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at. None
Standard equipment rack An equipment enclosure commonly seen in data centers or managed facilities and intended to house a variety of information technology equipment. Front panel width is typically 19 inches (482.6 mm) in width. Standard Equipment Racks are defined by EIA-310, IEC 60297, or DIN 41494. None
Unit under test The network equipment device being tested. None
Unknown Unknown None
Wireless local area network test client A device that is capable of establishing an 802.11x link with an Access Point (AP) and transmitting data to and receiving from the AP. None
