Special thanks go to my supervisor, Fredrik Erlandsson, for his support and guidance. - Scope and Objective Wireless local area networks (WLANs) have the potential to improve the flexibility, productivity, and the quality of work life of an enterprise (Sage Research Staff, ). Berean Institute is a typical two year college with about a staff of sixty eight employees and students per semester.

    Local Area Network (LAN) Editor by: SigWa Overview. Now that you have a basic understanding of the OSI model and what happens to data packets as they travel through the layers, it is time for you to start looking at basic networking devices.5/5(1). Creating Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) Understanding the creation and management of VLAN’s in today’s modern networks is crucial to a successful network engineer.

The magic of how virtual local area networks (VLANs) work is found in the Ethernet headers. When a switch receives an Ethernet frame, the frame will either already have a VLAN tag or the switch will insert a VLAN tag into the Ethernet header.

If the frame was received from another switch, that switch will [ ]. This concise book provides an objective introduction to local area networks - how they work, what they do, and how you can benefit from them.

It outlines the pros and cons of the most common configurations so you can evaluate them in light of your own needs. The computers on a network may be linked through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light beams. Two very common types of networks 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).

Local Area Networks is ideal for students both in the classroom and later as a reference. Forouzan motivates topics by practical applications, and his liberal use of figures makes difficult technical topics easier to grasp by providing an intuitive, visual representation of by: 3.

This book is intended as an introduction to local area networks, starting with the OSI model and going on through the popular network protocols, technology, and services. The book does not focus on one specific network operating system, but instead covers the three most popular network operating systems: Microsoft Windows Servers, Novell Cited by: 3.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Keiser, Gerd. Local area networks. New York: McGraw-Hill, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors. Local area networks have particular value in the monitoring and control of systems that have a number of separate sensors, actuators, and control units dispersed over a large area.

Indeed, for such large instrumentation systems, a local area network is the only viable transmission medium in terms of performance and cost. networks, the trend is toward interconnection of local area networks with long-haul networks. Interconnection can be motivated either by economics or simply by the needs of users of the hosts of a local area net- work.

For example, a local area network can provide an eco. This book is an introductory course in analysis of local area networks or computer networks.

Its primary market is in electrical engineering,although the course is also taught in computer science departments. A major feature of the text is that it covers both performance analysis and implementation considerations/5(14). This concise book provides an objective introduction to local area networks - how they work, what they do, and how you can benefit from them.

It outlines the pros and cons of the most common configurations so you can evaluate them in light of your own needs.

You'll also learn about network software, with special emphasis on the ISO layered. Product Information "Anyone considering buying a LAN should buy this book first."--Computing magazine Third Edition Local Area Networks New Technologies, Emerging Standards "Madron shows what LANs are, how they work, and includes guidelines for choosing, designing, and implementing a microcomputer-based LAN.".

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Gee, K.C.E. Local area networks. Manchester, England: NCC Publications, (OCoLC) Document Type. In Local Area Networks, we are interested in "connectivity", connecting computers together to share resources.

Even though the computers can have different disk operating systems, languages, cabling and locations, they still can communicate to one another and share resources. local area network (LAN): A computer data communications network used within a limited physical location, such as a house. network adapter (also network interface card, or NIC): A device that connects to an internal bus in a PC, which provides an interface between the computer or device and the LAN.

For wireless networks, network adapters typically connect to the PC Card bus or. Introduction to Local Area Networks. Abstract With this book, you'll be able to learn how networks work, choose suitable network hardware, choose the right network operating system, choose applications and groupware, decide whether to build an Intranet, and hire and work with a network consultant.

A local area network is a network that connects devices at a single location. This is done to communicate, exchange data and to integrate things and experiences. The following are common examples. A network used to integrate devices in the home and connect to the internet. For example, this can allow everyone in a home to access shared files.

Wireless Community Networks A Guide for Library Boards, Educators, and Community Leaders Version Chapter 6. Building a Local Area Network Before we can really begin talking about wireless data communications, let's take a step backward and discuss how computer networks work.

At this point neither of us has time for a complete study of the subject—that's what college. A local area network (LAN) is a group of computers and peripheral devices that share a common communications line or wireless link to a server within a distinct geographic area.

A local area network may serve as few as two or three users in a home-office or several hundred users in a corporation’s central office. A local area network, or LAN, consists of a computer network at a single site, typically an individual office building.

A LAN is very useful for sharing resources, such as. A virtual local area network (VLAN) is a logical grouping of ports which is independent of location. A single VLAN (and the nodes connected in a single VLAN) will behave in the same way as if it was a separate Layer 3 network.

VLAN membership need not be limited to sequential ports or even ports on the same switch. Figure depicts a very. networks, enabling communication and resource sharing across both net-works. That is, one network can be connected to another network and be-come a more powerful tool because of the greater resources.

Local area networks—The smallest office network is referred to as a local area network (LAN). A LAN is formed from computers and components in a single office or building.
