Comparison Between Lan and Wan

INTRODUCTION: A local area network (LAN) is a network of computers that interconnects computers in a limited or a small area such as a home, computer lab, school, or office building using the network media. The defining characteristics of LANs, is in contrast to the wide area networks (WANs), including their higher data-transfer rates, smaller geographic area, and lack of a need for leased telecommunication lines. ARCNET, Token Ring and other technology standards have been used in the past, but Ethernet over twisted pair cabling, and Wi-Fi are the two most common technologies currently used to build LANs. The increasing demand and use of computers in universities and research labs in the late 1960s generated the need to provide high-speed…show more content…
The Full Stack Adaptation Project is based on the architecture that integrates the horizontal and vertical handoff, while allowing applications participating fully in the handoff process. The FSA architecture also allows a two-way connection between the applications and network connectivity on the vertical handoffs. On the other hand, an application provides modes that allow a user to indirectly specify the relative importance of higher bandwidth, low waiting, or low prices here’s an example to a teleconferencing site that has and will inattentive and attentive modes. A casual attention paid to the conference the user may not require the best possible transmission quality, or have audio. But the user may begin to pay strict attention to the broadcast which might be in need of more space. The FSA architecture will allow the applications to provide recommends to the handoff mechanism that results in high savings. Other side, vertical handoffs are required to maintain connectivity, or alternate the interface if a mobile host gets out of the range of service for a network interface, or if the signal strength of one of the networks decreases. Applications to register interest or completed vertical handoffs allows the development of reactions to changes in quality of the service like example, an application requiring high bandwidth will alert
