contains at least two PCs that are associated—either by links (wired) or WiFi (remote)— determined to communicate, trade it or share information and assets. You construct a PC network utilizing equipment.
(e.g., switches, passageways, and links) and programming (e.g., working frameworks or
The geographic area
frequently characterizes a PC organization.
For instance, a LAN (neighbourhood) interfaces PCs in a characterized actual space, similar to a place of business, while a WAN (wide region organization) can associate PCs across landmasses. The web is the biggest illustration of a WAN, associating billions of
PCs around the world.
PC networks empower correspondence for each business, amusement, and examination reason. The web, online inquiry, email, sound and video sharing, online business, live-web based, and informal organizations all exist due to PC organizations.
- A LAN (local area network) is a network that connects computers over a small distance to exchange data, files, and resources. A LAN, for example, can connect all of the computers in a building, a school, or a hospital. LANs are typically privately owned and operated.
- WLAN (wireless local area network) A WLAN is similar to a LAN, but it uses wireless connections to connect devices on the network.
- A WAN (wide area network
) connects computers over a large distance, such as from one region to another or even continent to continent. The internet is the world's greatest wide-area network, linking billions of computers all over the world. For WAN administration, you'll usually encounter collective or dispersed ownership structures.
- A MAN (metropolitan area network) is a network that is larger than a LAN but smaller than a WAN. MANs are often owned and managed by cities and government agencies.
- PAN (Personal Area Network) A PAN is a network that only serves one individual. If you have an iPhone and a Mac, for example, you've probably set up a PAN to share and sync stuff (text messages, emails, images, and more) between the two devices.
- A SAN (storage area network) is a specialised network that allows access to block-level storage—a shared network or cloud storage that appears and functions to the user as if it were a physical storage drive connected to a computer.
- A (corporate area network)is sometimes known as a CAN (campus area network). A CAN is bigger than a LAN, but it's not as big as a WAN. Colleges, universities, and business campuses are all served by CANs.
- A VPN (a virtual private network) is a secure, point-to-point connection between two network endpoints. A VPN creates an encrypted route that prevents hackers from accessing a user's identity and access credentials, as well as any data sent.
