 Point-to-Point Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, the Point-to-Point Protocol, or PPP, is commonly used to establish a direct connection between two nodes.
PPP is commonly used to act as a layer 2 (the "Data Link" layer of the OSI model) protocol for connection over synchronous and asynchronous circuits.
PPP was designed to work with several network layer protocols, such as IP, IPX and AppleTalk, and as a replacement for the non-standard layer 2 protocol SLIP.

 PPP - a Whatis.com definition - see also: Point-to-Point Protocol
PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) is a protocol for communication between two computers using a serial interface, typically a personal computer connected by phone line to a server.
PPP is a full-duplex protocol that can be used on various physical media, including twisted pair or fiber optic lines or satellite transmission.
PPP is usually preferred over the earlier de facto standard Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) because it can handle synchronous as well as asynchronous communication.

 PPP, Point-to-Point Protocol
A collection of protocols designed for moving datagrams across serial point-to-point links.
All valid protocols have the least significant bit of the least significant byte set to 1 and the least significant bit of the most significant byte is cleared to 0.
These protocols are used to establish and configure the communications link, the network layer protocols and also to encapsulate datagrams.

 IEEE 802.11
With high-gain external antennas, the protocol can also be used in fixed point-to-point arrangements, typically at ranges up to 8 kilometres (although some report success at ranges up to 80-120 km where line of sight can be established).
Extensions have been made to the 802.11b protocol (eg, channel bonding and burst transmission techniques) in order to increase speed to 22, 33, and 44 Mbit/s, but the extensions are proprietary and have not been endorsed by the IEEE.
Access point equipment which can support all these standards simultaneously is also available.

 IEEE 802.11f - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
802.11f specifies a protocol between access points also known as the Inter-Access Point Protocol ( IAPP).

It handles the registration of APs within a network and the exchange of information when a user is roaming among coverage areas supported by different vendors' access points.

 CITES Glossary
Within that domain are distinct hostnames (such as argus.cites.uiuc.edu) that point to individual computers on the campus network.
The protocol used determines the way errors are checked, the type of compression, the way the sender indicates the end of the transmission, and the way the receiver indicates that the message has been received.
Protocols can describe low-level details of machine-to-machine interfaces (e.g., the order in which bits and bytes are sent across a wire) or high-level exchanges between allocation programs (e.g., the way in which two programs transfer a file across the Internet).

 Atmel Announces 'Tap-Dance' - A Fast, Reliable Seamless Handover Protocol for WLAN Terminal Devices
Unlike other protocols that address L3 handovers, Tap-Dance's latency (time to reconnect and restore the original IP connection) is as low as 20 msec to 50 msec on average (under real traffic conditions), which is many times faster than other competing protocols.
Tap-Dance extends the capabilities of the 802.11f IAPP that is used for Layer 2 (L2) mobility management of STAs when roaming between Access Points (APs) inside their Home IP Network (HN).
Thus it requires no manual set-up, no reconfiguration or software upgrades to the STA, and no specific networking devices, that increase the network architecture cost, to control roaming.
