Service Location Protocol (SLP)

Definition - What does Service Location Protocol (SLP) mean?

Service Location Protocol (SLP) is a Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) for automated service detection on local area networks (LANs).

SLP is published in RFC 3224 and RFC 3421.

Techopedia explains Service Location Protocol (SLP)

SLP was originally designed for small networks. Later it was expanded for large enterprise network functionality.

SLP uses terminals to broadcast LAN services with required address locator. It requires unrestricted attributes and one or more continuous device recognition scopes - simple group service strings similar to network system neighborhoods.
