Wired Networking

Wired networks, also called Ethernet networks, are the most common type of local area network (LAN) technology. A wired network is simply a collection of two or more computers, printers, and other devices linked by Ethernet cables. Ethernet is the fastest wired network protocol, with connection speeds of 10 megabits per second (Mbps) to 100 Mbps or higher.

Types of wired networks:

Local Area Network (LAN)

A local area network (LAN) is a computer network that interconnects computers in a limited area such as a home, school, computer laboratory, or office building using network media. The defining characteristics of LANs, in contrast to wide area networks (WANs), include their smaller geographic area, and non-inclusion of leased telecommunication lines.

Campus Area Network (CAN)

A campus network, campus area network, corporate area network or CAN is a computer network made up of an interconnection of local area networks (LANs) within a limited geographical area. The networking equipment’s (switches, routers) and transmission media (optical fibber, copper plant, Cat5 cabling etc.) are almost entirely owned by the campus tenant / owner: an enterprise, university, government etc.

Wide Area Network (WAN)

A wide area network (WAN) is a network that covers a broad area (i.e., any telecommunications network that links across metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries) using private or public network transports. Business and government entities utilize WANs to relay data among employees, clients, buyers, and suppliers from various geographical locations. In essence, this mode of telecommunication allows a business to effectively carry out its daily function regardless of location. The Internet can be considered a WAN as well, and is used by businesses, governments, organizations, and individuals for almost any purpose imaginable.

Wireless Networking

Wireless network refers to any type of computer network that is not connected by cables of any kind. It is a method by which homes, telecommunication networks and enterprise business installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations.This implementation takes place at the physical layer of the OSI model network structure.

Types of wireless networks:

Wireless PAN
Wireless Personal Area Networks(WPANs) interconnect devices within a relatively small area, that is generally within a person's reach.For example, both Bluetooth radio and invisible Infrared light provides a WPAN for interconnecting a headset to a laptop.

Wireless LAN
A wireless local area network (WLAN) links two or more devices over a short distance using a wireless distribution method, usually providing a connection through an access point for Internet access. The use of spread spectrum or OFDM technologies may allow users to move around within

Wireless mesh network
A wireless mesh network is a wireless network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. Each node forwards messages on behalf of the other nodes. Mesh networks can "self-heal", automatically re-routing around a node that has lost power.

Wireless MAN
Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks are a type of wireless network that connects several wireless LANs. WiMAX is a type of Wireless MAN and is described by the IEEE 802.16 standard.

Wireless WAN
Wireless Wide Area Networks are wireless networks that typically cover large areas, such as between neighboring towns and cities, or city and suburb. These networks can be used to connect branch offices of business or as a public internet access system. The wireless connections between access points are usually point to point microwave links using parabolic dishes on the 2.4 GHz band, rather than omnidirectional antennas used with smaller networks. A typical system contains base station gateways, access points and wireless bridging relays.
