Example text

Networks have changed the face of computing in the last 25 years both by becoming much more ubiquitous and by dramatic increases in performance. In the 1970s, very few individuals had access to electronic mail, the Internet and Web did not exist, and physically mailing magnetic tapes was the primary way to transfer large amounts of data between two locations. In the 1970s, local area networks were almost nonexistent, and the few existing wide area networks had limited capacity and restricted access.

In the 1970s, local area networks were almost nonexistent, and the few existing wide area networks had limited capacity and restricted access. As networking technology improved, it became much cheaper and had a much higher capacity. For example, the first standardized local area network technology developed about 25 years ago was a version of Ethernet that had a maximum capacity (also called bandwidth) of 10 million bits per second, typically shared by tens, if not a hundred, computers. Today, local area network technology offers a capacity of from 100 million bits per second to a gigabit per second, usually shared by at most a few computers.
