2. Infrastructure - wires and fiber optics the current moves through
3. Network Electronics - devices that move, route, and store data for the users Every network has three parts 1. Stand Alone Machine
2. Peer to Peer Network - all computers communicate, but each one stores files and runs own applications
3. Client-Server Network - have storate that holds data to share between computers Kinds of Networks LAN - local area network, share same wires
WAN- wide area network, larger geographic area, includes 2+ LANs LAN VS. WAN LANs + WANs = largest network called the Internet So what is the Internet? What about the Intranet? Networks like the ones connected by our school district With a network we can all read a document and edit it through our own computers
Without a network, we'd have to work on it on one computer or pass around a USB A simple example of how a network helps us at school Today you will learn firsthand how networks work in your classroom.
