Verizon Fiber Optic System (FiOS): FiOS (Fiber Optic Service) is a "fiber to the home" (FTTH), is the installation and use of optical fiber from a central point directly to individual buildings.
A typical FiOS package includes high-speed Internet access along with cable TV and basic telephone service. For consumer use, FiOS Internet access is available at downstream speeds between 15 and 300 megabits per second ( Mbps ) and upstream speeds between 5 and 65 Mbps.
Verizon has built its FiOS network in most of the states where it offers landline communications services.

Very High Bit Rate Digital Subscriber Line: A form of DSL similar to ADSL but providing higher speeds at shorter loop lengths.

Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN): A method of using common carrier networks to include disparate devices on the same broadcast domain. VLANs are a subcategory of VPNs and an OSI layer 2 construct.

Virtual Private Network (VPN): A set of protocols used to build and secure a private connection through a public network. VPN constructs range from layer 1 through layer 3 of the OSI model.

VLAN: See Virtual Local Area Network.
