A typed communication endpoint is a communication endpoint that has associated with it a type. The type of the communication endpoint may describe aspects such as data formatting, reliability properties, security, synchronization, and other aspects of data transmission.

Assigning types to communication endpoints is a technique that facilitates component integration and interoperability between software components. The use of typed communication endpoints in this context has been proposed in the research paper describing the QuickSilver properties framework.
