This Metropolitan Area Network Diagram depicts a computer network larger than a single building local area network but smaller than a wide area network because it is located in a single geographic area (WAN). It generally consists of several LANs linked together by dedicated backbone connections. It may also refer to municipal or regional public-use networking infrastructure. Traditionally, a metropolitan area network diagram refers to a private data network used by a single organization in multiple buildings or by several organizations interconnected in the same geographic area.
