Local Area Networks

Local Area Network (LANs)

A local area network (LAN) is a network of interconnected computers in a limited area, such as a school, or office building. LANs are known for their unusually high data-transfer rates, small geographic area, and a lack of need for leased telecommunications lines. Ethernet, FDDI, and WiFi are common LAN technologies. These networks are a configuration of cabling, network cards, routers, bridges, firewalls, wireless access points, and software.

Benefits of Using Our LAN Service

QoS Quality of Service (QoS) is critical to ensure that you have a stable and reliable LAN service as part of your communications network. We are knowledgeable about the intricacies of achieving QoS for LANs, by managing the delay, delay variation (jitter), bandwidth, and packet loss parameters efficiently. Managing QoS requires audits and regular refreshes, especially if you make changes to your network. We will train your systems administrators how to best accomplish this, or you can invest in one of our maintenance programs to have us maintain your LAN’s QoS. Security and Redundancy Our built in local area network design security features protect all of your information and your customers’ information using the latest leading-edge technologies in hardware and software applications. We ensure that you are compliant with any regulations governing your industry. This is critical for environments such as healthcare and government agencies. Plus, we ensure reliability by designing redundancy into your local area network service to protect against loss of data or connectivity due to system crashes. Connectivity Often LANs connect to other LANs, wide area networks (WANs), and wireless local area networks (WLANs) via bridges. At Maryland Telephone, we have experience with all of these types of networks, so we can optimize your LAN service as part of the backbone for your telecommunications needs.
