Designing a computer networkMuch like the social networking people do with other like-minded people, where they exchange ideas and information, the term “computer networking” is based on the same premise. Much like it sounds, a computer network is a series of computers linked together by either cable or wireless media that allows them to exchange data or share resources.

Types of Computer Networks

Computer networking is utilized in a wide variety of industries, including insurance; hospitals; education; manufacturing; professional or technical
services; and more. There are essentially three types of computer networks:

  1. Local Area Networks (LAN): Serve a smaller number of people and usually located within a small geographical area.
  2. Wide Area Networks (WAN): Connected across a wide geographical area.
  3. Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN): Created without the use of wires; data is transferred over radio transceivers.
