What is a Computer Network?

One of the earliest examples of a computer network was a network of communicating computers that functioned as part of the U.S. military’s Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) radar system. In 1969, the University of California at Los Angeles, the Stanford Research Institute, the University of California at Santa Barbara and the University of Utah were connected as part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) project.

It is this network that evolved to become what we now call the internet.

Networks are used to:

  • Facilitate communication via email, video conferencing, instant messaging, etc.
  • Enable multiple users to share a single hardware device like a printer or scanner.
