An Overview of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) Ibrahim Al Shourbaji Computer Networks Department Jazan University Jazan , Saudi Arabia Abstract Wireless Communication is an application of science and technology that has come to be vital for modern existence. From the early radio and telephone to current devices such asCited by: 5. A metropolitan area network is a computer network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic region of the size of a metropolitan area. The term MAN is applied to the interconnection of local area networks in a city into a single larger network which may then also offer efficient connection to a wide area network. The term is also used to describe the interconnection of several local area networks in a metropolitan area .

It mentions MAN advantages or benefits and MAN disadvantages or drawbacks. MAN stands for Metropolitan Area Network. What is MAN? Introduction: It interconnects number of LANs using high capacity backbone technology. It is a large network which usually spans city or large campus. It's geographic coverage is in between LAN and WAN. Data allocations in local area networks (LANs), metropolitan area networks (MANs), and wide area networks (WANs) are subject to different requirements and : Fahmeenaodetta Moore.

The main objective of this workshop was to review and discuss the state of the art and the latest advances in the area of Gbit/s throughput for local and metropolitan area networks. The first generation of local area networks had throughputs in the range Mbit/s.

The other type of LAN is called metropolitan area network (MAN). MAN has characteristics of high capacity of supporting at least Mbps speed and more than stations on the network. It has a larger geographic scope than LAN provides support for integrated data types, and has the provision of dual cables to improve throughput and reliability.

The primary use of metropolitan area networks is the customer that has high-capacity needs in a metropolitan area. A MAN is intended to provide the required capacity at a lower cost and greater efficiency than obtaining an equivalent service from the local telephone company.

A metropolitan area network (MAN) is similar to a local area network (LAN) but spans an entire city or campus. MANs are formed by connecting multiple LANs. Thus, MANs are larger than LANs but smaller than wide area networks (WAN). MANs are extremely efficient and provide fast communication via high-speed carriers, such as fiber optic cables.

Metropolitan Area Network combines local networks located within a city, and is based on high data rate compounds, implemented on the basis of fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. Now, with the increasing number of network communities, wireless local area networks based on b standard are combined into a wireless metropolitan area network consisting of.

The demand for communication networks has increased dramatically in the last few years, creating a need for an intermediate network that operates over a metropolitan area at comparatively high data rates with simple protocols/5(13).

A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a computer network that usually spans a city or a large campus.A MAN usually interconnects a number of local area networks (LANs) using a high-capacity backbone technology, such as fiber-optical links, and provides up-link services to wide area networks (or WAN) and the Internet.

Sadiku. Local and metropolitan area networks are proliferating and penetrating every company and building. Even experienced network engineers and managers will be baffled by the ever-changing technologies and terminology. This book serves as a good reference and guide for those who want a deeper understanding of the technical details of LANs and MANs.

Campus Area Network (CAN): A CAN is a computer network that connects multiple local area networks (LAN) in a limited geographical area.A CAN is smaller than a wide area network (WAN) or metropolitan area network (MAN).It can be set up by a college, company and so on.

A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic area or region larger than that covered by even a large local area network but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network (WAN).The term is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network (which may then also offer efficient connection to a.Organisation of the Book This book is arranged in seven parts, with Parts I and II providing an introduction to wireless networking and to wireless communication that lays the foundation for the more detailed, technical and practical discussion of the local, personal and metropolitan areas scales of wireless networking in Parts III to V.Metropolitan Area Network The Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) generally expands throughout a city such as cable TV network.

It can be in the form of Ethernet, Token-ring, ATM, or Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI). Metro Ethernet is a service which is provided by ISPs.

This service enables its users to expand their Local Area Size: 2MB.
