Networksa group or system of interconnected people or things.[1]

There are different types of networksa group or system of interconnected people or things.. Common types of networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. are: WAN and LAN. There are other types of networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. as well: SAN, MAN, BAN, IAN and others. Each networka group or system of interconnected people or things. type helps us understand the purpose, designProduce a plan, simulation or model. goals, and scale of the networka group or system of interconnected people or things.. For example if we say a networka group or system of interconnected people or things. is a LAN, we can assume it is a local networka group or system of interconnected people or things., probably in one building or in a reasonably restricted area. We might make an assumption that a LAN has a certain numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of devices connected to it. However, if we say a networka group or system of interconnected people or things. is a WAN, we might assume it is much larger, and designed to accommodate a much, much larger numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of devices.

Type of networka group or system of interconnected people or things. Characteristics
local area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (LAN) A local area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (LAN) is a computer networka group or system of interconnected people or things. that interconnects computers within a limited area such as a residence, school, laboratory, university campus or office building[2]
virtual local area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (VLAN) A VLAN is a group of devices on one or more LANs that are configured to communicate as if they were attached to the same wire, when in fact they are located on a numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of different LAN segments. [3]
wide area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (WAN) A wide area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (WAN) is a telecommunications networka group or system of interconnected people or things. or computer networka group or system of interconnected people or things. that extends over a large geographical distance. Wide area networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. are often established with leased telecommunication circuits. Business, education and government entities use wide area networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. to relay data to staff, students, clients, buyers, and suppliers from various locations across the world. In essence, this mode of telecommunication allows a business to effectively carry out its daily function regardless of location. The Internet may be considered a WAN.[4]
storage area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (SAN) watch this video, please. A storage area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (SAN) is a networka group or system of interconnected people or things. which provides access to consolidated, block level data storage. [5]
wireless local area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (WLAN) A wireless local area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (WLAN) is a wireless distribution method for two or more devices that use high-frequency radio waves and often include an access point to the Internet. A WLAN allows users to move around the coverage area, often a home or small office, while maintaining a networka group or system of interconnected people or things. connection.[6]
internet watch this. The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link devices worldwide. It is a networka group or system of interconnected people or things. of networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies.[7]
extranet An extranet is a controlled private networka group or system of interconnected people or things. that allows access to partners, vendors and suppliers or an authorized set of customers – normally to a subset of the information accessible from an organization's intranet. An extranet is similar to a DMZ in that it provides access to needed services for authorised parties, without granting access to an organization's entire networka group or system of interconnected people or things.. An extranet is a private networka group or system of interconnected people or things. organization.[8]
virtual private networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (VPN) A virtual private networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (VPN) extends a private networka group or system of interconnected people or things. across a public networka group or system of interconnected people or things., and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networksa group or system of interconnected people or things. as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private networka group or system of interconnected people or things.. Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private networka group or system of interconnected people or things..[9]
personal area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (PAN) A personal area networka group or system of interconnected people or things. (PAN) is a computer networka group or system of interconnected people or things. used for data transmission amongst devices such as computers, telephones, tablets and personal digital assistants.[10]
Peer-to-peer (P2P) peer-to-peer (P2P) computing or networking is a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between peers. Peers are equally privileged, equipotent participants in the application. They are said to form a peer-to-peer networka group or system of interconnected people or things. of nodes.[11]
