  adjacency 
 
    A  relationship  between  two  {network}  devices, 
  e.g.  {routers},  which  are  connected  by  one  media  segment  so 
  that  a  packet  sent  by  one  can  reach  the  other  without  going 
  through  another  network  device.  The  concept  of  adjacency  is 
  important  in  the  exchange  of  routing  information. 
 
  Adjacent  {SNA}  {nodes}  are  nodes  connected  to  a  given  node 
  with  no  intervening  nodes.  In  {DECnet}  and  {OSI},  adjacent 
  nodes  share  a  common  segment  ({Ethernet},  {FDDI},  {Token 
  Ring}).
