TYPES OF NETWORKS

Three types of networks:
•Local Area Network or LAN
•Metropolitan Area Network or MAN
•Wide Area Network or WAN

Here:

•LAN - the email system within the school lab in SMK KL
•MAN - the email system within KL city
•WAN - the email system between KL and London

A LAN covers a small region of space, typically a single building.

A MAN is a collection of LANs with the same geographical area, for instance a
city.

A WAN can be a collection of LANs or MANs or the mix of two with a very
large geographical area, for instance a country or even beyond the border.
