Local Area Network (LAN)

Category: Network

LAN (Local Area Network) Services provide for reliable access channels to respective local networks. This connectivity can be through wired or wireless LAN technology. LAN services are available to consolidated agencies as well as several State agencies, boards and commissions that the Bureau of Communications and Computer Services (BCCS) presently support.
 
Computers (i.e., wired and wireless desktop and laptops) are logically connected to essential servers and printers through LAN designation. They enable connectivity to the BCCS Data Center which in turn allows for access to BCCS Services resources. The LAN Service also enables the use of file and print services and provides for remote access.
