Local Area Network (LAN)

What is a LAN and how does it work?

A Local-Area-Network (LAN) is defined as a network for client computers and servers to communicate with each other in a relatively smaller geographic area like in a home or office of a building. It encompasses modems, routers, switches, WiFi access points, repeaters, etc.

The performance of network throughput is steongly depending on the networking hardward chosen and quality of structured cabling work done. Only experienced network engineers know how to select and release 100% of the actual hardware performance with optimum network design and appropriate networking settings.
