Network Design and Setup

A network is a mechanism enabling two or more computers to communicate with each other. This enables users to share information and devices. Users collaborate on a work item print and even communicate directly through individual addressed messages. Network consist of many components include hardware and software. Networks are grouped into two distinct categories namely
Local Area Network (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs)
Local Area Networks (LANs) – are used to interconnect devices that are in relatively close proximity where as WANs – are used to interconnect across geographical distant

Capabilities of Computer Networks
Through Computer to Computer communications users are able to
• Share files
• Resources ( Printer, Modem, Scanners)
• Greater back up through the archiving process

Similarly through a standard Network System file synchronization is also eliminated hence Computer Network lower cost and enhances portability since users communicate and share data which has necessitated the development of Information Technology Industry
