Do you need to stay connected while sharing equipment and/or while using non-local connections?
Local Area Network (LAN) –
A Local Area Network is a way to transmit data quickly and share valuable resources and storage. Many computers are able to share a common communication line or wireless link to easily access files, printers, e-mail, other LAN's and the Internet.
Wide Area Network (WAN) –
Exchange data across even greater distances than ever before using WAN services. Shared users can interoperate using unique IP (Internet Protocol) addresses that can send out requests to the entire WAN network that will seamlessly locate and retrieve information back to the individual IP address. The non-centralized design offers rerouting options that make it safe and almost destruction proof while using specific servers with set standards or protocols to keep sensitive information safe.
