Description

Lan vs. Wan

LAN Network LAN stands for Local Area Network. Local Area Network (LAN) is method of connecting more than one computer. The scope of local area network is private network, single building or small area up to few kilometers. To exchange information in different companies or schools or universities used to connect personal computers and workstations. WAN Network A WAN (wide area network), is not restricted to a geographical location, although it might be confined within the bounds of a state or country. A WAN connects several LANs, and may be limited to an enterprise (a corporation or an organization) or accessible to the public. The technology is high speed and relatively expensive. The Internet is an example of a worldwide public WAN. LAN vs. WAN S.No Headings LAN WAN 1 Ownership: Typically owned, controlled, and managed by a single person or organization 2 Example: Network in an organization can be a LAN Internet is the best example of a WAN Technology: Tend to use certain connectivity technologies, primarily Ethernet and Token Ring WANs tend to use technology like ATM, Frame Relay and X.25 for connectivity over the longer distances Maintenance costs: Because it covers a relatively small geographical area, LAN is easier to maintain at relatively low costs. Maintaining WAN is difficult because of its wider geographical coverage, and and is its maintenance costs. 3 4 WANs (like the Internet) are not owned by any one organization but rather exist under collective or distributed ownership and management over long distances

5 Definition: LAN (Local Area Network) is a computer network covering a small geographic area, like a home, office, or group of buildings WAN (Wide Area Network) is a computer network that covers a broad area (e.g., any network whose communications links cross metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries over a long distance Set-up costs: If there is a need to setup a couple of extra In this case since networks in remote areas devices on the have to be connected hence the set-up costs network, it is not very are higher expensive to do that Connection: one LAN can be connected to other LANs over any distance via telephone lines and radio waves Computers connected to a wide-area network are often connected through public networks, such as the telephone system. They can also be connected through leased lines or satellites 8 Geographical spread: Have a small geographical range and do not need any leased telecommunication lines Have a large geographical range generally spreading across boundaries and need leased telecommunication lines 9 Data transfer rates: LANs have a high data transfer rate WANs have a lower data transfer rate as compared to LANs 6 7 10 Coverage Area A LAN (local area network) is a group of computers and network devices connected together, usually within the same building A WAN (wide area network), is not restricted to a geographical location, although it might be confined within the bounds of a state or country.
