What is LAN?

Uploaded2022/2/14 0:00:00     Hits    Source

LAN is the acronym for local area network. It's a collection of computers and equipment in one location that share the same communication line or wireless link with servers in other parts of the world. From a single user's home network to a corporate network with thousands of users and devices in an office or school, LANs can be vast or tiny.

Types of LAN

There are some types of LANs: client/server LAN, peer-to-peer LAN, wired LAN and wireless LAN.

A single server connects to several devices is known as clients in a client-server LAN setup. Client devices are unable to communicate with one another, and centralized machines handle network traffic management, network access control, and other tasks. On a local scale, this form of LAN might be faster, but on a larger size, it would place too much strain on the central server.
