Review of Local Area Networks

  • Anthony S. Acampora
Part of the Applications of Communications Theory book series (ACTH)

Abstract

Many of the functional components, attributes, and operating principles of broadband networks are also exhibited by premises-based Local Area Networks (LANs) Among these are the notions of a shared high-speed resource, real-time packet switching via custom VLSI, “universal” access ports, and multiple simultaneous connections supported through each port. However, LANs do not have the enormous capacity of a broadband network and are traditionally intended to support homogeneous bursty data traffic rather than heterogeneous multimedia traffic.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
