LAN

Stands for Local Area Network. It is a network of computers and other devices spread over a relatively small space, e.g. a building or group of buildings. Usually, these devices all connect to a server or group of servers by ethernet or Wi-Fi. Sometimes, they are connected to other LANs and together they form a WAN (Wide Area Network).
