such as thousand mbps.
n WAN, links may be established by using telephone cable or microwave towers or satellite. Co- axial cables are generally used to connect the computer and other devices.
d) In this network, shortcircuit errors, noise errors, atmospheric errors are higher than any other networks. Due to short distance, short circuit errors or other noise errors are minimum.
