Local area networks (LANs) that support small systems, the personal computers in particular, are surveyed. LAN environments, factors motivating interest in PC LANs, and capability requirements of LANs posed by low-end systems users, are outlined. Discussion of LAN technology includes standards, architecture, transmission media, topology, transmission techniques, access protocol, and performance factors topics. Commercial products are presented with more in-depth outline on selected products. Observation and future of PC LANs conclude the survey.
