Up One Level

Local Area Network


A private communications network owned and operated by a single organisation within one location. This may comprise one or more adjacent buildings, but a local network will normally be connected by fixed cables or, more recently, short range radio equipment. A LAN will not use modems or telephone lines for internal communications, although it may well include such equipment to allow selected users to connect to the external environment.
