9 indicates that certain computers are dedicated to the communications-handling function. A gateway computer is shown attaching each LAN and host system to the WAN and a communications subnet comprising computers called 'routers' is shown. These communications computers cooperate to route each 'message' from its source to its destination. 9. LANs connected by WANs. Like the international telephone service, basic WAN infrastructure is provided by the public telephone companies. There are also WANs with private, dedicated connections.

There are also WANs with private, dedicated connections. In general, LANs operate at 10s to 100s of megabits per second and are highly reliable. WANs comprise 41 42 many different links with different characteristics; some may be slow and unreliable. A world-wide network may contain a satellite link through which a large volume of data can be transferred but with a long end-to-end delay; some computers may be attached to a WAN by telephone lines. The trend is towards the provision of high-speed connections which have the characteristics of LANs.

The basic philosophy of network communications software is to regard the network as a shared resource which must be managed. For example, a user of an attached workstation may have started a background compilation, which requires several files to be read from a file server and, in parallel, may be reading mail from a mail server. Certain attached computers exist solely to support communication, for example, when two LANs are connected by a gateway computer or a LAN is connected to a wide area network (WAN).
