A local area network, or LAN, is a geographically limited network intended for the local transport of voice, data, and video. Often referred to as an enterprise network, a LAN is just one of many types of area networks. It can be a small in-building network designed to connect IP devices, or a large network connecting multiple sites or buildings in a medical or university campus.
The LAN is made up of three primary applications: outside plant or campus network, in-building, and the horizontal. These areas contain both active (electronics) and passive (cabling) components that enable the transfer of data to all devices connected to the network. Understanding your network needs is critical to providing a network that will support your needs today and allow your network to grow into the future.
