Powerful computer Provides one or more services to a network and its users LANs and WANs Flash Animation http://minisite.proj.hkedcity.net/sec-te/cht/topics/ network_lanwan/index.html LANs and WANs

There are two main types of network: Local Area Network (LAN) Wide Area Network (WAN) LAN A LAN covers a small area such as one site or

building, eg a school or a college. WAN A WAN covers a large geographical area. Most WANs

network could be connected to the Internet. WANs can be connected together using the Internet, leased lines or satellite links. Advantages and disadvantages of networks

Advantages of networks Sharing devices Sharing software Sharing files Communication Security is good Data is easy to backup (Central Management) Disadvantages of networks

Purchasing the network cabling and file servers can be expensive. Managing a large network is complicated If the file server breaks down the files on the file server

become inaccessible. Viruses can spread to other computers throughout a computer network. There is a danger of hacking, particularly with wide area networks. Security procedures are needed to prevent such abuse, eg a firewall. What hardware and software for the computer network?
