    A LAN, or Local Area Network, is a small network of computers, usually in the same building. They consist of several nodes (the PCs, or to be technical, the Network Interface Cards), all connected together using a topology and the cables that connect the nodes. A local-area network has both hardware and software components. From a hardware perspective, a basic Solaris LAN consists of two or more computers attached to some form of local-area network media.

Ronald J. Vetter, in Advances in Computers, LAN Technology. Local area networks (LANs) have become commonplace in the information age.

The introduction of low-cost computers, along with the need to share information and hardware resources, in an office environment led the way to the development of inexpensive LAN technologies. A local area network (LAN) is a computer network that interconnects computers within a limited area such as a residence, school, laboratory, university campus or office building.

By contrast, a wide area network (WAN) not only covers a larger geographic distance, but also generally involves leased telecommunication circuits. Feb 11,  · The book explores the key topics in the field in the following general categories: Technology and architecture: There is a small collection of ingredients that serves to characterize and differentiate local and metropolitan area networks, including transmission medium, topology, communication protocols, and switching technique.

Publisher Summary. This chapter provides an overview of the book, “Cable engineering for local area networks,” which is written as an aid to understand the complexities of structured or premises cabling systems that are used to make the office-based Local area Networks (LANs) represent the foundation, indeed the physical layer, of the IT infrastructure.

Part 2, LAN/MAN management = Technologies de l'information: telecommunications et échange d'information entre systèmes: réseaux locaux et métropolitains: spécifications communes.

Chapter 4. VLANs and Trunking The move from hubs (shared networks) to switched networks was a big improvement. Control over collisions, increased throughput, and the additional features offered by switches - Selection from Packet Guide to Routing and Switching [Book].

The computers on a network may be linked through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light beams.

Two very common types of networks include: Local Area Network (LAN) Wide Area Network (WAN) You may also see references to a Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN), a Wireless LAN (WLAN), or a Wireless WAN (WWAN). This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Ad-Hoc, Mobile, and Wireless Networks, ADHOC-NOWheld in Luxembourg, in October The 37 full and 10 sh.

Growing demands of wireless local area communication are prominent for many day-to-day activities. Applications such as multimedia or VoIP which rely on tight quality-of-service (QoS) support are widely used.

In order to handle these applications properly, the data transmission over radio channels should be enhanced by means of spectrum management.

this approach of dissemination of known knowledge in the area of security in wireless ad hoc networks. To our knowledge, this book is the first book that focuses exclusively on the topic of security for wireless ad hoc networks.

The topic of security in wireless ad hoc networks itself is very vast. Performance Analysis of Telecommunications and Local Area Networks presents information on teletraffic engineering, with emphasis on modeling techniques, queuing theory, and performance analysis for the public-switched telephone network and computer communication networks.

Coverage includes twisted. Keywords: Local Area Network, LAN, Network, WAN, Wide Area Network, MAN, Metropolitan Area Network, Developing Country, Communications, Communication Media. Abstract: Networks can be defined as a collection of independent computers and other devices interconnected by a communication medium, such as coaxial cables, twisted pairs of optical fibers.

The number of Local Area Networks (LANs) is increasing rapidly and is expected to double over the next few years. In this book and its accompanying disk, Gilbert Held provides a unique guide to the hardware and software tools with which to determine LAN performance.

An increasing amount of software for LAN management and testing is now.
