Network Connections provides connectivity between two or more computer systems with a network or another computer and the Internet. With Network Connections, you can configure settings to reach local or remote network resources or functions. Networking may involve unpredictable delays, so to avoid this, always perform networking operations on a separate thread from the user interface. There are some commonly used computer networks:

 

  • LAN (Local Area Networks): LAN is a computer network that interconnects computers within a fixed area such as a home, computer laboratory, and building using network media.

  • LAN (Local Area Networks): LAN is a computer network that interconnects computers within a fixed area such as a home, computer laboratory, and building using network media.
  • WAN (Wide Area Networks): WAN is a network that covers a broad area as compare to LAN i.e. telecommunications network that connected by telephone lines or other high-speed communications link across regional, national or international area.

 

  • CAN (Campus Area Networks): CAN is a computer network made up of an interconnection of local area networks (LAN) within a fixed area such as a campus or military area.

 

  • MAN (Metropolitan Area Networks): MAN is computer network larger than a local area network, cover surrounding areas, few city areas, or region larger than that covered by even a large local area network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network (WAN). This network is mainly designed for a town or city.

 

  • SAN (Storage Area Network): SAN is a secure high-speed dedicated network that provides access to consolidated block-level storage. It is mainly used to increase storage devices, such as disk arrays, tape libraries, RAID subsystems, and file server, accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally connected devices to the operating system.
