    between personal computers or workstation. The
    resources can include hardware, data and software
    for example to one computer a large hard disk
    drive is allocated to it and become a server to
    different clients. The different resources are
    stored on this server and used as needed by the
    whole group.

    distance transmission of data, image, audio and
    video information over large geographical area
    that may comprise a continent, country or even
