Wired vs. Wireless Computer Networking

Many of the same Internet protocols work in both wired and wireless networks. Networks with Ethernet cables predominantly in businesses, schools, and homes for several decades now. More recently, wireless technologies like Wi-Fi have emerged as the preferred option for building new computer networks, in part to support smartphones and the other new kinds of wireless gadgets that have triggered the rise of wireless and mobile networking.

Computer Network Hardware and Software

Communication devices including network routers, access points, and network cables physically hold a network together. Network systems and other software applications generate network traffic and enable users to do useful things.

Network Design

Computer networks admins also differ in their design approach. The two basic forms of design are called client/server and peer-to-peer. Client-server networks use centralized server computers that store email, Web pages, files and or software applications accessed by client computers and other client devices. On a P2P network, all devices tend to support the same functions. Client-server networks are much more common in business and peer-to-peer networks more common in homes.

Business Computer Networks

Small and home office (SOHO) environments use similar technology found in home networks. Businesses often have additional communication, data storage, and security requirements that require expanding their networks in different ways, particularly as the business gets larger. Most ISP companies offer enough versatility to not have to purchase 3rd party equipment. Although, if the industry requires higher levels of encryption, a more business type router and switch would be best suited in the 3rd party hardware arena.

Most home networks function as one LAN, a business network tends to contain multiple LANs. Companies with buildings in multiple locations utilize wide-area networking to connect these branch offices together to offer amore co-location atmosphere and environment. Though also available and used by some home networks, voice over IP communication and network storage and backup technologies are prevalent in businesses. Larger companies also maintain their own internal Web sites, called intranets to help with employee business communication.
