Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)
MANs (Metropolitan Area Networks) connect multiple geographically nearby LANs to one another (over an area of up to a few dozen kilometres) at high speeds. Thus, a MAN lets two remote nodes communicate as if they were part of the same local area network.
A MAN is made from switches or routers connected to one another with high-speed links (usually fibre optic cables).
