    Glossary Single Mode The fiber optic cabling standard that corresponds to distances of up to 10 km between devices. SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol. An internet management protocol that uses either IP for network-level functions and UDP for transport-level functions, or TCP/IP for both. Can be made available over other protocols, such as UDP/IP, because it does not rely on the underlying communication protocols.
