Term: LAN [Local Area Network]
LAN is an acronym for Local Area Network.
There’s no formal definition as to just how local “local” is, but in general, it refers to a network of devices in a single location, where even “location” is a vague term.
A LAN most commonly refers to a network within a home or business that shares a single connection to another network (typically to a WAN), but the term has also been used to refer to the network within a corporation – even though the corporation may have many locations, country- or even planet-wide.« Back to Glossary Index
