A collection of local area networks ( LANs) normally connected together with routers.
The ability to operate & exchange information in a heterogeneous network.
The connection of different physical networks into a large, virtual network. The Internet refers to the TCP/IP-based Internet that connects many commercial sites, government agencies, and universities.
One or more connected LANs.
A network of networks; also called an internet. An internetwork is a group of LANs and WANs that are geographically or organizationally separate, but appear to users as one integrated network.
a collection of individual networks, connected by intermediate networking devices, that functions as a single large network
a collection of LANs within a building, group of buildings, or campus area
a group of networks that connect together across common or multiple topologies to communicate with common or multiple protocols to achieve full interoperability
a network of computer networks
a set of connected networks
a set of interconnected networks that form a single communication system, allowing any node on any network to connect with any other node
a network consisting of several interconnected local-area networks
a network of networks which has established methods of communication
Refers to the ‘interconnection' of ‘networks'. A general term for the protocols, technologies, and devices that allow computers to communicate across different networks.
A large, multi-segment network that includes communication between two networks or two types of networks. Bridges or routers are the devices that join LANs.
A collection of packet-switching and broadcast networks that are connected together via routers.
At least two network segments connected using routers.
Two or more networks connected by an internal or external router.
Any wide area network connecting more than one network.
networking: Aka internet; A group of networks joined together with bridges, routers, gateways, etc. that are capable of communication with each other.
A network of devices (typically computers) that utilize the Internet Protocol (IP) to communicate with each other. Hosts communicate globally on an internetwork. An internetwork conceptually resides on top of physical networks such as Ethernet.
A set of networks and individual computers that are connected so that they can communicate and share information. The Internet is a very large internetwork. See Chapter 1.
Two or more LANs connected by one or more switches, routers, or bridges.
Two or more networks connected by bridges or routers.
A collection of networks (that may be dissimilar in type) interconnected by routers, gateways, or other devices, so that they can function as a single, large network. Sometimes called an internet, which is not the same as the Internet (the World Wide Web). See also Internet Network Router WWW
Any connection of two or more local or wide-area networks.
A collection of two or more networks that may be dissimilar.
Collection of networks interconnected by routers and other devices that functions (generally) as a single network. Sometimes called an internet, which is not to be confused with the Internet.
An organized collection of local area network and wide area network links throughout an enterprise. The internetwork provides an information "spinal cord" for the transmission of data between all types of corporate computers and their software applications-database, financial, word, processing, engineering, order processing, electronic mail and others.
A collection of many different computing systems which communicate with each other. The computing systems can include different hardware architectures, operating systems and network technologies.
