|PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association)
||This association develops standards for PC cards, formerly known
as PCMCIA cards. PC cards are available in three "types",
which are about the same length and width as credit cards, but range
in thickness from 3.3 mm (Type I) to 5.0 mm (Type II) to 10.5 mm (Type
III). These cards can be used for many functions, including memory
storage, as landline modems, and as wireless LAN devices.
||A function that allows one to travel with a mobile end system (wireless
LAN mobile station, for example) through the territory of a domain
