Enterprise Network

Definition - What does Enterprise Network mean?

An enterprise network is an enterprise's communications backbone that helps connect computers and related devices across departments and workgroup networks, facilitating insight and data accessibility. An enterprise network reduces communication protocols, facilitating system and device interoperability, as well as improved internal and external enterprise data management.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Network

The key purpose of an enterprise network is to eliminate isolated users and workgroups. All systems should be able to communicate and provide and retrieve information. Additionally, physical systems and devices should be able to maintain and provide satisfactory performance, reliability and security. Enterprise computing models are developed for this purpose, facilitating the exploration and improvement of established enterprise communication protocols and strategies.

In scope, an enterprise network may include local and wide area networks (LAN/WAN), depending on operational and departmental requirements. An enterprise network can integrate all systems, including Windows and Apple computers and operating systems (OS), Unix systems, mainframes and related devices like smartphones and tablets. A tightly integrated enterprise network effectively combines and uses different device and system communciation protocols.
