Computer Networking Standards

by Vaughn Aubuchon

Here is a brief summary tutorial chart of computer network standards, summarizing the differences between LANs and WANs.

Internet protocols, OSI layers, and other computer network technologies are also summarized. This computer networking tutorial includes a brief glossary of computer networking terms.

DISCLAIMER:
Although the author has tried to be as accurate as possible, errors and mis-statements are possible.

I could not find a computer network training tutorial like the above. So, I drew this summary diagram of the data network types, to help myself understand the inner workings of data communication network systems. I hope that it helps you.
