Local Area and IP Networking. This note covers the following topics: Introduction and Review, Medium Access Control, IEEE LAN Standards, Local Area Networking Devices, IP Addressing, Routing, Transport Protocols, Application Support Protocols, Network Security, Wide Area Network. Author(s): Dr. J. McDougall. A local area network is a high-speed, medium-distance communication system. For most LANs, the maximum distance between two nodes in the network is at least one mile, and the transmission speed ranges from 1 to 20 megabaud. Also, most local networks support at least stations, or nodes.

Local Area Networks: /ch Local area networks (LAN) are extremely popular in both the consumer and enterprise markets. The LAN has become ubiquitous throughout both of these markets as. The aim of the book is to provide a course text for the networking element required by most degree and BTEC Higher National courses in computing. The book covers both the key concepts for. cost, by local area network technology. This local area use of long- due to the fact that long-haul packet communication technology has haul network technology, indicated by the shaded area of Fig. 1, is been available commercially for several years, while local area network technology has not. Chapter 5Local Area Networks Introduction In this chapter, we discuss different flavors of local area networks (LANs). The specific topics to be covered include the following: (a) Ethernet - Selection from Fundamentals of Data Communication Networks [Book].
