What is a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)?

Hello,

A MAN is larger than a LAN but smaller than or the same in size to a WAN.

Think of it as the size of a city or college campus network, which can range anywhere from 5 to 50km in diameter.

MANs are typically owned and managed by a single entity.

This could be an ISP or telecommunications company that sells its services to end-users in that metropolitan area.

A MAN has the same features as a WAN with distance constraints.

 

Thank You

John Major.

Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is an outsized computer network that covers a whole city or a big campus. This is similar to LAN or Local Area Network but it usually joins the number of LANs with a use of a soaring volume backbone technology like a fiber-optical links. It also present up-links to WAN and Internet. This connects the networks on one city to become a single larger network.
