A computer network is a set of connected computers. The connection between computers can be done via cabling, most commonly the Ethernet cable, or wirelessly through radio waves.

1.PAN -Personal area network

2.LAN-Local area network

3.MAN-Metropolitan area network

3.WAN-Wide area network

A framework includes in any event two PCs that are associated in order to share resources, (for instance, printers and Compact discs), exchange records, or license electronic correspondences. The PCs on a framework may be associated through connections, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light columns.A framework includes in any event two PCs that are associated in order to share resources, (for instance, printers and Compact discs), exchange records, or license electronic correspondences.

There are other types of Computer Networks also, like :


PAN (Personal Area Network)


SAN (Storage Area Network)


EPN (Enterprise Private Network)


VPN (Virtual Private Network)

A system comprises at least two PCs that are connected so as to share assets, (for example, printers and CDs), trade records, or permit electronic correspondences. The PCs on a system might be connected through links, phone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light pillars.

Two common Types of systems 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).

The Network allows computers to connect and communicate with different computers via any medium. LAN, MAN and WAN are the three major types of the network designed to operate over the area they cover. There are some similarities and dissimilarities between them. One of the major differences is the geographical area they cover, i.e. LAN covers the smallest area; MAN covers an area larger than LAN and WAN comprises the largest of all.

A network is a collection of computers connected to each other with the help of networking devices. A network is classified on the basis of its size, ownership, distance cover and physical architecture. The different types of networks are Local Area network (LAN), Metropolitan Area Network (MAN), Campus Area Network (CAN), and Wide Area Network (WAN).

Local Area Network (LAN) - 
LAN is a computer network that spans over a small area. It connects computer and workstation to share data and resources such as printer or faxes.


LAN Network


Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) - MAN is an interconnection of networks in a city. Generally, MAN is not owned by a single organization. It is a high-speed network.


MAN NetworK

Campus Area Network (CAN) - CAN is a computer network. It is made up of two or more LAN within a limited area. It can cover many building in an area. The man feature of CAN is that all of the computers which are connected together have some relationship to each other.


CAN Network


Wide Area Network (WAN) - It connects computer through public networks, like telephone system, microwave, satellite link or leased line. It supports the ITU standard.


WAN Network
