• What Does Tulsa Computer Networking Mean?

  • Tulsa Computer Networking is the same thing it is anywhere else in the state, the country, or around the world. Per Wikipedia, the meaning of computer networking is described as: “A computer network is a group of computers that are connected to each other for communication purpose. Networks may be classified according to a wide variety of characteristics.”

    In simple terms, Tulsa computer networking is when we connect a group of computers to each other by either CAN, LAN, PAN, WAN, VPN, or internetwork. This is done so that the computers can communicate with each other. This method was created back in the 1960s and since then, Tulsa computer networking has grown in leaps and bounds, just as it has everywhere else.

    In the industry of information technology, Tulsa computer networking is also referred to as a data network. It is a series of points that are interconnected by communication paths so that the group of computers can exchange, receive, and transmit data, voice and even video between them.

    There are network devices called routers and switches that use an assortment of algorithms and protocols that enable the exchange of information in Tulsa computer networking systems. The data is transported to the intended endpoint, aka a host by way of an IP address or a MAC address (Media Access Control).

    Within a Tulsa computer networking system, the endpoints will include personal computers, phones, servers, or some other type of hardware designed for networking.

    Two Types of Technologies Used

    Tulsa computer networking will utilize wired and/or wireless technologies. A wired network will consist of either coaxial cable, optical fiber, or twisted pairs of copper wires.

    In Tulsa computer networking by way of wireless network pathways, the endpoints are connected without any wires (hence the terms wireless). These endpoints used in this type of networking include the use of either broadcast radio, cellular radio, microwave and satellite.

    There are private networks and public networks. Users of a private network are required to obtain permission before they can gain access. That permission is either done by a network administrator manually or via a password or login credentials issued by the network administrator. On a public network system, access is not restricted.
