What does Local Area Network Emulation (LANE) mean?
Local area network emulation (LANE) enables local area network (LAN) data bridging and routing over an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network and facilitates the exchange of Ethernet and token ring network data.
LANE operates at the Media Access Control (MAC) layer, which is Layer 2 of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model.
Techopedia explains Local Area Network Emulation (LANE)
The following are LANE features and attributes:
- Provides high-speed routing and scalable traffic switching
- Works with LAN MAC drivers.
- Implemented across multiple devices, such as workstations, switches, network interface cards (NIC) and bridges.
LANE has three server points of failure, as follows:
- LAN Emulation Configuration Server (LECS)
- LAN Emulation Server (LES)
- Broadcast and Unknown Server (BUS)
In the event of network failure, Simple LANE Service Replication provides server redundancy.
