## What is Local Area Network in CCNA?

Hello,

LANs are restricted to a local or small geographical area.

An example of a LAN would be a network of single computers or workstations that are connected in a single division.

These users have shared access to properties such as data and network devices.

LAN is the smallest network in geographical size.

Given the size constraints, downsides of a LAN network are restricted distance that data can travel and a limited number of computers that can be connected.

An upside of a LAN is fast data transfer with data speed that can extent up to 10Gbps.

Thank You,

John major.
