Why Metro Area Networking?


Metro Area Network services

MANs are typically utilized by organizations operating out of multiple office locations that require a secure, flexible and cost effective means for their employees to communicate and share information across a central computer network.

Wide Area Networks form a proper foundation for a number of business critical applications including:

 
  • VoIP phone service
  • Centralized merchant transactions
  • Remote application
    access (Citrix)
  • Remote user access
  • File transfer/sharing
  • Video delivery
  • Secure access to internal
    software applications
  • Outsourced network management
  • Compliance requirements
  • Central data storage & backup

What is a MAN Network?




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). The term is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network (which may then also offer efficient connection to a wide area network). It is also used to mean the interconnection of several local area networks by bridging them with backbone lines. The latter usage is also sometimes referred to as a campus network.

Types of Wide Area Networks

Wide Area Networks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are either private or public, wired or wireless, managed or self-managed and they can be implemented through a number of different technologies.
