Information technology networks is a system of computers that are joined together so that they can communicate by exchanging information and sharing resources. There are many types of networks:
- Local area networks (LAN)
- Wide area networks (WAN)
- Personal area network (PAN)
- Metropolitan area network (MAN)
- Virtual private network (VPN)
How do determine to use wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi connectivity? Wi-Fi is obviously more convenient than wired Ethernet cables. But Ethernet still offers advantages — faster speeds, lower latency, and no wireless interference problems. Wired Ethernet networks have another huge advantage when it comes to security – harder for intruders to connect into a network. You probably won’t be connecting an Ethernet cable to your Smart TV, fridge, tablet or smartphone!
The FUTURE is here! Are you READY? The Internet of Things (IoT) is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and appliances —embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.
