autonomous system

A network that is administered by a single set of management rules that are controlled by one person, group or organization. Autonomous systems often use only one routing protocol, although multiple protocols can be used. The core of the Internet is made up of many autonomous systems. See ASN, routing protocol and path vector protocol. See also autonomous vehicle.
