A network is a collection of computers connected together that allows the computers to share information and resources. There are many different kinds of networks. The two most common are LANs (Local Area Network) and WANs (Wide Area Network). (Bishop 2) Networks can be connected to other networks, which allows them to exchange information with each other. One reason the Internet grew so rapidly (before it became popular) is that colleges would connect their individual LANs together to share information. There are five building blocks to networks. Terminals, transmission links, nodes and switches, transmission methods and procedures, and architecture and standards. (Bishop 1) These all combine to form a uniform easily accessible interface that allows communications to take place in a transparent manner.

Calls to or from a mobile phone get to their destination via antenna located on buildings or masts. Each antenna (usually a group of antenna) is at the centre of what is known as a cell. A group of cells makes up a network. Because the power output from the mobile phones and antenna is relatively low, to communicate over anything but the smallest distances, a call has to be passed from one cell to the next until the signal gets to the intended receiver. Each cell overlaps with the neighbouring cell in the 'network' to allow calls to be passed on.

For the most part these are the mobile phone companies such as Orange, O2 and Vodafone.

A network is a communications system between two or more computers. A network of computers located close to one another and (usually) connected by cables is called a Local Area Network (LAN). A network of computers spread over a large geographical area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN). Networking allows computers to exchange and share information.
A Local Area Network, LAN, ties together printers, servers, routers, and PCs. The network of a long distance company ties together their switches and POPs. The internet is a public network that ties together millions of computers via routers and switches. See also WAN.
A system of interlinking computers, each with the capability to communicate with each other.
