A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a large computer network on the large geographical area that include several buildings or even the entire city (metropolis). The geographical area of the MAN is larger than LAN, but smaller than WAN. MAN includes many communicating devices and provides the Internet connectivity for the LANs in the metropolitan area.

MAN is used to combine into a network group located in different buildings into a single network. The diameter of such a network can range from 5 to 50 kilometers. As a rule, MAN does not belong to any particular organization, in most cases, a group of users or a provider who takes charge for the service own its connecting elements and other equipment. Level of service is agreed in advance and some warranties are discussed. MAN often acts as a high-speed network to allow sharing regional resources (like a big LAN). It is also often used to provide public available connection to other networks using a WAN connection. There are many ways of classifying networks. The main criterion for classification is considering the administration method. That is, depending on how the network is organized and how it is controlled, it can be attributed to local or distributed, metropolitan or WAN. or her A network administrator manages a network or it’s segment. Administration team activities are logged, and their rights and responsibilities are strictly divided if the network is complex. Computers can be connected using a variety of media access controllers: a twisted pair, optical conductors (optical cables) and via radio (wireless technology). Wired optical connections are usually established via Ethernet, wireless - through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS and other protocols. Private LAN may be linked to other local area networks through gateways, as well as being part of a global computer network (eg, the Internet), or have a connection to it.
