Types of Computer Networks

Computer networks come in all different shapes and sizes. One method defines the type of a network according to the geographic area it spans. Alternatively, networks can also be classified based on topology or on the types of protocols they support. However you slice them, computer networks offer almost unlimited options for organizing devices.

An introduction to LANs, WANs, and other area networks
For historical reasons, the networking industry refers to nearly every type of design as some kind of area network. Common types of area networks are LAN, WAN and MAN... but many others exist, too.
Exploring computer network topologies like bus, ring and star
In computer networking,topology refers to the layout of connected devices. Think of a topology as a network's virtual shape or structure. This shape does not necessarily correspond to the actual physical layout of the devices on the network.
Introduction to business computer networks
Just as many residential households have installed their own home networks, corporations and other types of businesses also utilize computer networks in their daily operations. Both residential and business networks run using many of the same underlying technologies. However, business networks (particularly those in larger corporations) incorporate additional features and usages.
In-Vehicle computer networks explained
While many don’t realize it, modern automobiles have become rolling computer networks. Computerized monitoring and control systems for a car’s engine, transmission, brakes, cruise control, cameras, and other subsystems communicate with each other and share surprisingly large amounts of information. The trend toward increasingly more intelligent vehicles makes it likely that in-vehicle networks will also continue to grow in importance.
