 Hornet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hornets are the largest eusocial wasps, reaching up to 45 millimetres (1.8 inches) in length.
The true hornets make up the genus Vespa, and are distinguished from other vespines by the width of the vertex (part of the head behind the eyes), which is proportionally larger in Vespa; and by the anteriorly rounded gasters (the section of the abdomen behind the wasp waist).
The name "hornet" is used for this and related species primarily because of their habit of making aerial nests (similar to the true hornets) rather than subterranean nests.

 HORNET   (Site not responding. Last check: )
HORNET is a WDM MAN ring that uses packet-over-WDM technology to form a multiple-access ring architecture instead of a ring formed of point-to-point links (we define packet-over-WDM as packet-switching at the optical layer, instead of at the network layer).
This allows HORNET to be optimized for metro area traffic conditions as content is distributed throughout the network, and bursty, unpredictable packet-based communications is required between all access points on the network.
