Networks and their Applications

  • Roy Rada

Abstract

Computer networks increase interconnectivity at the organizational level and are advancing rapidly in terms of their technological speed and capacity. Computer networks provide to users resource sharing and computer mediated communication. Computer-mediated communication systems include computer conferencing and electronic mail. Resource sharing allows users to access and use resources on another computer that they cannot directly (in physical terms) access [151]. This chapter explores the features of a network, the special demands of multimedia on networks, electronic mail, internet tools, and more.
