AbstractLocal area networks (LAN) are contributing to the use of Information Technology (IT) as a communication media between individuals and departments within organizations. Not only are LANs used to share expensive devices such as printers, plotters, disks and modems, they are becoming the major "backbones" in modern offices for sharing information, documents, discussions or correspondenceand work flow. In combination with the development of high speed, digital telecommunications, these (electronically) closed organizations can open themselves to the world. Computer-based communication backbones are spreading to encompass whole industries, countries and the entire world. In the developed world the so-called "information highways" are becoming the most important national investments in the infrastructure, as reflected in the US National Information Infrastructure project 2 and a European parallel.3
