In telecommunication, a hop is a portion of a signal's journey from source to receiver. Examples include:
- The excursion of a radio wave from the Earth to the ionosphere and back to the Earth. The number of hops indicates the number of reflections from the ionosphere.
- A similar excursion from an earth station to a communications satellite to another station, counted similarly except that if the return trip is not by satellite, then it's only a half hop.
- In routing, a hop is the step from one router to the next, on the path of a packet on any communications network. On the Internet the hops a packet takes may be discovered with pings or traceroutes. The hop count is the total number of steps along the path from source to sink. In this context, the term "hop" is sometimes said to be an acronym for "hand-over point".
The lakeHóp is situated in the north of Iceland near Blönduós at the Húnafjörður.
Hop is a Lisp-like programming language by Manuel Serrano for web 2.0 and also the name of the web broker ( server and proxy) that implements this language. It is written in Bigloo Scheme. It is a project funded by INRIA.
Hop, occasionally written HOP, is an abbreviation for Hsp70- Hsp90 Organizing Protein. It functions as a co-chaperone which reversibly links together the protein chaperones Hsp70 and Hsp90.
Hop belongs to the large group of co-chaperones, which regulate and assist the major chaperones (mainly heat shock proteins). It is one of the best studied co-chaperones of the Hsp70/Hsp90-complex. It was first discovered in yeast and homologues were identified in human, mouse, rat, insects, plants, parasites, and virus. The family of these proteins is referred to as STI1 (stress inducible protein) and can be divided into yeast, plant, and animal STI1 (Hop).
In computer networking, a hop is one portion of the path between source and destination. Data packets pass through bridges, routers and gateways as the travel between source and destination. Each time packets are passed to the next network device, a hop occurs. The hop count refers to the number of intermediate devices through which data must pass between source and destination.
Since store and forward and other latencies are incurred through each hop, a large number of hops between source and destination implies lower real-time performance.
