Intranets and Extranets

Intranets and extranets -- Intranets and extranets are private (e.g. limited access) networks built using Internet protocols. Therefore, users can access network resources through their web browser rather than a proprietary interface. This substantially reduces training time for users and system development time for programmers. Thus, intranets and extranets are rapidly replacing traditional proprietary LANs and WANs:
1.
Intranets -- Available only to members of the organization (business, school, association); intranets are often used to connect geographically separate LANs within a company.
2.
Extranets -- Intranets that are opened up to permit associates (company suppliers, customers, business partners, etc.) to access data that is relevant to them.
