IP NETWORKS VERSUS NON-IP NETWORKS
Most modern networks fall into one of two very broad categories: IP based networks. These are all networks that communicate through Internet Protocol addresses, which is the standard for the Internet and for most internal networks today. This generally includes Ethernet, Cable Modems, DSL Modems, dial up modems, wireless networks, VPN connections and more.
Then there are non-IP based networks. These are usually very specific niche networks, but one in particular has grown in usage enough to warrant mention here and that is InfiniBand. Because InfiniBand is not an IP network, many features and configurations normally used on IP networks are not applicable to InfiniBand.
INTRODUCTION TO NETWORK MANAGER
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the default networking service is provided by Network Manager, which is a dynamic network control and configuration daemon that attempts to keep network devices and connections up and active when they are available. The traditional ifcfg type configuration files are still supported.
