Telecommunication Standard Terms
Acronym for local area network.
A data communications system that (a) lies within a limited spatial area, (b) has a specific user group, (c) has a specific topology, and (d) is not a public switched telecommunications network, but may be connected to one. (188 ) Note 1: LANs are usually restricted to relatively small areas, such as rooms, buildings, ships, and aircraft. Note 2: An interconnection of LANs within a limited geographical area, such as a military base, is commonly referred to as a campus area network. An interconnection of LANs over a city-wide geographical area is commonly called a metropolitan area network (MAN). An interconnection of LANs over large geographical areas, such as nationwide, is commonly called a wide area network (WAN). Note 3: LANs are not subject to public telecommunications regulations.

Glossary of the European Information Society
A network for communication between computers confined to a single building or in a closely located group of buildings, permitting users to exchange data, share a common printer or master a common computer, etc. Linked groups of LANs extended over a larger area are termed Wide Area Networks (WANs). WANS may connect users in different buildings or countries. Networks which extend over city-wide areas are called Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs).

See: Local Area Network
A data network intended to serve an area of only a few square kilometers or less. Because the network is known to cover only a small area, optimizations can be made in the network signal protocols that permit data rates up to 100Mb/s. See also: Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface, token ring, Wide Area Network. [Source: NNSC]

Glossary of Computer and Internet Terms
Stands for "Local Area Network" and is pronounced like "land" without the "d". People will think you're weird if you say "L-A-N". It's a computer network limited to a single building or small area. Most large office buildings today use LANs, making it easy for employees to share information. Currently, the most common type of LANs are Ethernet-based and use software from Novell or Oracle.
