Overview#

Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network that interconnects computers within a limited area such as a residence, school, laboratory, university campus or office building and has its network equipment and interconnects locally managed.

In contrast, a Wide Area Network (WAN), not only covers a larger geographic distance, but also generally involves leased telecommunication circuits or Internet links.

An even greater contrast is the Internet, which is a system of globally connected business and personal computers.
