LAN, MAN, WAN Definitions

Before we get into the technical services we provide, let’s start with some definitions to put things in context…

LAN (local area network) is a group of computers and network devices connected together, usually within the same building. By definition, the connections must be high speed and relatively inexpensive (e.g., token ring or Ethernet).

MAN (metropolitan area network) is a larger network that usually spans several buildings in the same city or town.

WAN (wide area network), in comparison to a MAN, is not restricted to a geographical location, although it might be confined within the bounds of a state or country. A WAN connects several LANs, and may be limited to an enterprise (a corporation or an organisation) or accessible to the public. The technology is high speed and relatively expensive. The Internet is an example of a worldwide public WAN.

  • Protocol, RIPV-2, OSPF, EIGRP and BGP.
  • Policy Based Routing PBR, Route Filtering, Redistribution, Summarization.
  • Cisco Meraki installation


Switching – Filtering and forwarding packets between LAN segments. Switches operate at the data link layer and sometimes the network layer to support any packet protocol.

We offer the following switching services:

  • Load Balancing in L3 devices-HSRP/VRRP/GLBP.
  • Configuring Frame-Relay .
  • Configuring Cisco Catalyst Switches and VLAN.
  • Configuring STP, PVST, RST to provide optimum performance.
  • Configuration Cisco Switches 2960, 3550, and 3560 and VLAN setup in Cisco switches.
  • VTP(Dot 1q and ISL) and STP.
  • Port Aggregation (Ether Channel).


Protocol – An agreed-upon format for transmitting data between two devices. It determines type of error checking and data compression used.

We use the following protocols:  OSPF, EIGRP, RIP, BGP, HSRP, VRRP, GLBP, VTP , STP.

Checkpoint Firewall –  The security system designed to prevent unauthorized access on a private network, implemented as hardware or software.

We offer the following firewall services:

  • Creating and implementing Rule Base.
  • Configuring site–to-site VPN
