network entity title (OSI) (NET)

In an ISO network architecture, the Network Entity Title (NET) represents the network addresses used in conjunction with connectionless network protocols, Connectionless Network Services( CLNS).

NET is used to identify the network layer of a system without affecting any particular transport layer. NET can be used to address intermediate systems( IS) such as routers.

A NET address can have three different structures: As an 8- octet ID format, as an OSINSAP format, or as a GOSIP NASP format, Network Service Access Point ( NSAP).
