A term of familiar address at one time implying on the part of the speaker some degree of authority, impatience, or haste; as, Come, man, we 've no time to lose! In the latter half of the 20th century it became used in a broader sense as simply a familiar and informal form of address, but is not used in business or formal situations; as, hey, man! You want to go to a movie tonight?.
Metropolitan Area Network. A data communication network typically covering the geographic area of a city; a communications network that is usually larger than a LAN but smaller than a WAN. See CAN, LAN, WAN.
Metropolitan Area Network. A network service that provides high speed and low delay over a metropolitan area and initial B-ISDN-like services; the Switched Multimegabit Data Service is one such MAN offering that uses cell relay transport. This category includes the networks up to 100 km. (e.g. FDDI.)
A type of network that evolved from local-area network (LAN) designs, but is optimized for longer distances (more than 50 kilometers), greater speeds (more than 100 megabits per second) and diverse forms of information (such as voice, data, image and video).
Metropolitan Area Network. A data network, typically operated by a municipality or communications carrier that provides high-speed service within a geographical area such as a college campus, town or city. A MAN is larger than a Local Area Network (LAN) but smaller than a Wide Area Network (WAN). (See WiMAX). close
Metropolitan Area Network. Network spanning area up to a few dozen kilometers in diameter. A network of limited geographic scope, generally defined as within a 50-mile radius. Standards for MANs are being defined by the IEEE.
Metropolitan Area Network. A city-wide network that provides connectivity for high rise buildings, government offices, schools, residential areas, hospitals, transportation hubs, or even open public places. Modern cities build MANs to provide high speed Internet access to city-dwellers and guests. Also see PAN, LAN, WAN.
Metropolitan Area Network, a network spanning a single city or metropolitan area. It is larger than local area netowrks (LAN), which area normally restricted to a single building or neighboring buildings, but smaller than wide area networks (WAN), which can span the entire globe.
Metropolitan Area Network A network that interconnects users with computer resources in a region larger than that covered by a large local area network ( LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network ( WAN). The term is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network.
Metropolitan Area or regional Network. Generally, a MAN spans a geographic area larger than a LAN, but smaller than a WAN. It is normally under single management and may be of higher capacity than WANs.
A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic area 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).
Metropolitan Area Network. A data network, which covers an area greater than a LAN, but less than a WAN. Oftentimes, a MAN is several LANs connected to one another for the purposes of creating a larger network. See also LAN and WAN.
Metropolitan Area Network (réseau) Réseau métropolitain dont la taille est située entre celle d'un réseau local (LAN) et celle d'un réseau longue distance (WAN). Ce peut être un réseau à l'échelle d'un campus ou d'une ville.
Metropolitan Area Network. A collection of local area networks (LANs) that would otherwise be a wide area network (WAN), but which is local to a single metropolitan area (for example, between five different buldings in London). See also Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN).
metropolitan area network. network in which all interconnected computers are distributed across a town, city, or metropolitan area. Contrast with local area network (LAN) and personal area network (PAN) and wide area network (WAN).
Metropolitan Area Network. A data network intended to serve an area approximating that of a large city. Such networks are being implemented by innovative techniques, such as running fiber cables through subway tunnels. A popular example of a MAN is SMDS. See also: Local Area Network, Switched Multimegabit Data Service, Wide Area Network. [Source: NNSC
Metropolitan Area Network. A group of LANs with high-speed, seamless interconnection within a â€œmetropolitanâ€ area. The latter is not necessarily a city; it normally means any area which is spread out but in some sense a single entity: for instance, two company buildings on opposite sides of the road or on a large site.
A Metropolitan Area Networking. A network that comprises of several locations within 10 miles of one another. Different locations are connected through WAN architecture (like ISDN, dial-up or wireless connections). See Also: WAN, LAN
(Metropolitan Area Network) A data network designed for a town or city. In terms of geographic breadth, MANs are larger than local area networks (LANs), but smaller than wide area networks (WANs). MANs are usually characterized by very high-speed connections using fiber optical cable or other digital media.
(2003-10-05) Chris Limb etropolitan rea etwork - a network that (a) covers an area larger than a campus area network and smaller than a wide area network (WAN), (b) interconnects two or more LANs, and (c) usually covers an entire metropolitan area, such as a large city and its suburbs.
Metropolitan area network. Backbone network that connects local area networks in a metropolitan area such as a city or town and handles the bulk of communications activity, or traffic, across that region. A MAN typically includes one or more LANs, but covers a smaller geographic area than a WAN. 9.16
Adam, thr archetype of all human beings, is created in the image of God. But the perfection of image is lost by human choice. In Christ the New Adam, humanity, is re-created according to the true image of God.
A man is a male human. The term man (irregular plural: men) is usually used for an adult, with the term boy being the usual term for a male child or adolescent (sometimes also applied to childish adult men). However, the term is also used for a human regardless of age or sex, sometimes even extended to more primitive humanoids than the present species Homo sapiens, as in apeman.
One of the thirty counters that are moved around the board according to rolls of the dice. Each player has fifteen men in opposing colours; e.g. black and white. (Also known as piece, checker or stone)
Person, mankind. A physical creature composed of body and soul. A rational animal. The soul has been given to man by God's creative act. it is immortal and its rational quality is spiritual. The Bible often mentions apparitions or visions of men or young men. (See apparitions and visions.)
(Gr. anthropos) Frequently used in the Bible in the generic sense for both man and woman. Man is the pinnacle of God's creation, for only he among the creatures was made in the image and likeness of God. See Gen. 1:26, 27; Luke 4:4.
Biblically defined as especially created by God as both male and female in His own image - a distinction not accorded to the animal world. At creation man was given free will, a capacity for rational thought patterns, and dominion over the animals.
Man are a progressive pub-rock band from South Wales with a cult following. Originally the second incarnation of Welsh rock harmony group The Bystanders: Micky Jones, Clive John, Ray Williams and Jeffrey Jones. In 1968, Deke Leonard joined the group, and they changed their name to Man.
Man is the third solo album by Swedish singer Neneh Cherry, released in 1996. The album was a reasonable success, however the track which ironically does not fit in the overall feeling of the album and often feels like the odd song out, "7 Seconds" became a hit. The track was a duet with Youssou N'Dour, a famous Senegalese singer whom helped make the musical style mbalax popular in Africa and in a way this duet was an introduction of this style to Europe and the United States.
To dream of a man, if handsome, well formed and supple, denotes that you will enjoy life vastly and come into rich possessions. If he is misshapen and sour-visaged, you will meet disappointments and many perplexities will involve you. For a woman to dream of a handsome man, she is likely to have distinction offered her. If he is ugly, she will experience trouble through some one whom she considers a friend.
An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks he is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be. His chief occupation is extermination of other animals and his own species, which, however, multiplies with such insistent rapidity as to infest the whole habitable earh and Canada. When the world was young and Man was new, And everything was pleasant, Distinctions Nature never drew 'Mongst kings and priest and peasant. We're not that way at present, Save here in this Republic, where We have that old regime, For all are kings, however bare Their backs, howe'er extreme Their hunger. And, indeed, each has a voice To accept the tyrant of his party's choice. A citizen who would not vote, And, therefore, was detested, Was one day with a tarry coat (With feathers backed and breasted) By patriots invested. "It is your duty," cried the crowd, "Your ballot true to cast For the man o' your choice." He humbly bowed, And explained his wicked past: "That's what I very gladly would have done, Dear patriots, but he has never run." Apperton Duke
