Was conceived in the late 1960’s by the Department of Defense of the United States, more precisely, by ARPA. ARPANET was the first name and was designed to serve research. Its use was popularized after the creation of the WWW. Today is a public space used by millions of people around the world as a tool of communication and information.
Intranet: The corporate Intranets are networks that use Internet protocols and tools. Its appearance is similar to other Internet pages. If this network is in turn connected to the Internet, it is generally protected by firewalls.

Inkjet printer: the printer works by spraying ink on paper.
Printer, dot matrix, or matrix: printer that works via a press of a head inked ribbon against the paper.
Laser printer: printer speed and high resolution using laser technology. When the beam touches the paper, which form an electrostatic image attracts the ink dries.
Printer: device that reproduces text and images on paper. The main types are: dot matrix, inkjet and laser.
Artificial Intelligence: Simulation of the processes of human intelligence by computer systems.
Interface: transition elements or connections that facilitates the exchange of data. The keyboard, for example, is an interface between the user and the computer.
IP: Internet Protocol.
IrDA (Infrared Data Association): Organization founded to create international standards for hardware and software used in communication links by infrared rays. The infrared technology plays an important role in wireless communications.
ISDN: Integrated Services Digital Network telephone system for digital transmission. With an ISDN line and an ISDN adapter can surf the Web at speeds of 128 Kbps, if the ISP also has ISDN.
ISO: International Organization for Standardization. Founded in 1946, is an international federation which brings in about one hundred countries standards. One is the OSI standard, universal reference model for communication protocols.
ISP: Internet Service Provider.
