WWW and Internet TechnologyBasic Concepts in Computer Networking

Computer Network

Wide Area Network (WAN)

A computer network that spans a relatively large geographical area. Typically, a WAN consists of two or more LAN.


WWW and Internet TechnologyBasic Concepts in Computer Networking



  • Internet
  • A global network connecting millions of computers.
  • INTERnational NETwork
world wide web
World Wide Web
  • WWW or the Web.
  • consists of a network of computers which provide Web pages to Internet users.
