Transmission speed ranges from 200 million bits per second to more than 500 million bits per second
BUILDING A SHARED INFORMATION NETWORK
Transmission speed ranges from 200 million bits per second to more than 500 million bits per second. The most striking example of an overlay network is the Internet itself. The Internet itself was initially built as an overlay on the telephone network.

It transmits stream of bits and defines how the data is transmitted over the network and what control signal are used. Its main function is to control how a stream of bits is sent and received over the physical medium. An Open System is a model that allows any tow systems to communicate even if their architectures are different.
Some examples of devices that are used in a PAN are personal computers, printers, fax machines, telephones, PDAs, scanners, and video game consoles. A wired PAN is usually constructed with USB and FireWire connections while technologies such as Bluetooth and infrared communication typically form a wireless PAN. Routing can be contrasted with bridging in its assumption that network addresses are structured and that similar addresses imply proximity within the network. Structured addresses allow a single routing table entry to represent the route to a group of devices. In large networks, the structured addressing used by routers outperforms unstructured addressing used by bridging. Unstructured MAC addresses are used for bridging on Ethernet and similar local area networks.
It consists of reference material, magazine articles, government documents and speeches etc. It handles sending, receiving and error checking of data transmission. Different computers of LAN are communication media, zona-viral network. Most LANs are used to connect computer in a signal building or group of buildings. Hundreds thousands of computer may be connected through LAN. Differentiate between a bus topology and a star topology.
The equipment that ties together the departmental networks constitutes the network backbone. When designing a network backbone, network performance and network congestion are critical factors to take into account. Normally, the backbone network's capacity is greater than that of the individual networks connected to it. For example, MAC bridging (IEEE 802.1D) deals with the routing of Ethernet packets using a Spanning Tree Protocol.
2.2 Statewide health information network (SHIN)
The average time frame for this process is four to six weeks. Using a WAN, schools in Florida can communicate with places like Tokyo in a matter of seconds, without paying enormous phone bills. Two users a half-world apart with workstations equipped with microphones and a webcams might teleconference in real time. It uses multiplexers, bridges, and routers to connect local and metropolitan networks to global communications networks like the Internet. To users, however, a WAN will not appear to be much different than a LAN.
It promotes timely, independent and consensus-based information and highlights critical data gaps. Read the latest analyses from the global data community on the impact of COVID-19 on national and global food and nutrition security, poverty, and development. INA offers comprehensive investigative services to the corporate and government sectors. Our staff of highly trained personnel has previous experience in military careers and in local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. A private sector for delivering NIN services to governmental users. There are many ways to measure the performance of a network, as each network is different in nature and design.
The data illustrate that large organizations have realized the need for an information center, which has be-come a centralized repository for information and the lifeline of these organizations. The data in Table 1 signifies the "enlightenment" of management over the past five years toward this concept. The hoarding of intelligence is exacerbated with the increased size and complexity of an organization.
