Metropolitan Area Network
A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a network is a network that interconnect users with computer resources in a geographically area or region larger than that covered by even a large local area network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network (WAN).
A metropolitan area network, or MAN, consists of computer network across an entire city, college campus or small region. A MAN is larger than a LAN, which is typically limited to a signal building or site. Depending on the configuration, this type of network can cover an area from several miles to tens of miles. A MAN is often used to connect several LAN’s together to form a bigger network. It is also used to mean the interconnection of several local area networks by bridging them with backbone lines. The latter usage is also sometimes referred to as a campus network. A MAN is used to connect several LANs together to form a bigger network. When this type of network is specifically designed for a college campus, it is sometimes referred to as a campus area network, or CAN.
