Types Networks in Indonesia

Types Networks in IndonesiaTalking about networks, of course in Indonesia itself there are many networks that are spread out, and one of them is the internet network that you are currently using. Yes, if you think about it, the network, especially the internet network, is no longer something that certain people can enjoy. However, networks, including internet networks, can become the primary needs of the Indonesian people today.

Before going further to discuss the internet network, then learn in advance what is meant by the internet network along with its history and the benefits of the internet network that you need to know.

What is Network?

A local area network is limited to a specific area, such as your home, office, or campus. A home network may have one router that offers both wired and wireless connections. For example, computers can connect to the router via Ethernet, while smartphones and tablets connect to the router via Wifi. All devices connected to the router share the same network and often the same Internet connection.

Larger networks, such as educational institution networks, may consist of many switches, hubs, and Ethernet cables. It can also include multiple wireless access points and wireless repeaters that provide wireless access to the network. Although this type of network is much more complex than a home network, it is still considered a LAN because it is limited to a specific location.

Network Is

If you are asked what is meant by a network, a network is a collection of computers, servers, mainframes, network devices, peripherals, or other devices connected to enable data sharing. An example of a network is the Internet, which connects millions of people around the world. Below is an example of a network that connects various devices to the internet at home.

A computer network is a group of computers connected to each other that allows computers to communicate with other computers and share their resources, data and applications.

Network Type

Networks that are very well known and also very widely used are LAN (Local Area Network) and WAN (Wide Area Network). Actually there are other types of networks such as PAN (Personal Area Network) and MAN (Metropolitan Area Network).

LAN (Local Area Network)

Local Area Networks are limited to certain areas, such as your home, office, or campus. A home network may have one router that offers both wired and wireless connections. For example, computers can connect to the router via Ethernet, while smartphones and tablets connect to the router via Wifi. All devices connected to the router share the same network and often the same Internet connection.

Larger networks, such as educational institution networks, may consist of many switches, hubs, and Ethernet cables. It can also include multiple wireless access points and wireless repeaters that provide wireless access to the network. Although this type of network is much more complex than a home network, it is still considered a LAN because it is limited to a specific location.

WAN (Wide Area Network)

A Wide Area Network is not limited to one area, but includes multiple locations. WANs often consist of multiple LANs connected via the Internet. An enterprise WAN, for example, can extend from headquarters to other offices around the world. Access to the WAN may be restricted using authentication, firewalls, and other security measures. The Internet itself is the largest WAN because it includes all the locations connected to the Internet.

PAN (Personal Area Network)

It is a network that connects electronic devices within the user’s immediate area. PAN sizes range from a few centimeters to several meters. One of the most common examples of PAN in the real world is the connection between a Bluetooth ear piece and a smartphone. PANs can also connect laptops, tablets, printers, keyboards, and other computerized devices.

MAN (Metropolitan Area Network)

This type of network is a large computer network that usually spans a large city or campus. A MAN network is optimized for a wider geographic area than a LAN, from a few building blocks to an entire city.

A MAN network is formed by connecting several LANs. Thus, a MAN Network is larger than a LAN but smaller than a WAN.

The purpose of a MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) is to provide a long-term link to the internet.

What is the Internet?

In short, the internet is a loose confederation of independent but interconnected networks that use the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol for communication.

It provides universal connectivity and three levels of network service: connectionless packet delivery, full-duplex stream delivery, and application-level service.

Internet Development in Indonesia

By using the Lynx remote browser in the United States, internet users in Indonesia can access HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) internet.
