What is the meaning of network of networks?
This is usually used to describe the Internet.
A few computers connected together is a computer network.
A few computer networks connected together is a network of networks.
Computers that are connected to each other create a network. These networks are often configured with "public" Internet Protocol (IP) addresses -- that is, the devices on the network are "visible" to devices outside the network (from the Internet or another network). Networks can also be configured as "private" -- meaning that devices outside the network cannot "see" or communicate directly to them.
That is precisely what it is. The early networks (BBS systems, Milnet, DARPANET, college universities computer networks, etc) were not interconnected. The base concept of the internet was connecting these various networks. Essentially the internet is one giant network, but individual nodes on that network may be gateways for other networks that are not directly on the internet.
A Private Network is the network build up from company's computer, devices and leased line. Virtual Private Networks are the networks that enable the organization to build up private network over public networks. Main features of Virtual Private networks are security, reliability, scalability, network managment etc. Virtual networks are called Virtual because those are merely illusions just like virtual circuits.

The classful network A provides 16,777,216, the most available in classful networks. Unfortunately a class A network only allows for 256 possible networks. This is of course IPv4 stuff Remember the entire IPv4 address space is 32 bits wide In class A the network mask is 255.0.0.0 meaning that the first octet or eight spaces are reserved for networks and the remaining 24 bits are available for host. OK so the number of host are…
For two or more connected networks you can use a bridge to connect them all together. It depends on the two networks. A bridge can only connect two networks of the same type (eg Ethernet or Token-Ring), that also use the same layer 3 network address (eg IP subnet or IPX network #, or AppleTalk network #). A "gateway" device can connect two dissimilar types that share a network address, and a router can connect…
A network is ANY connection of computers or other devices.Companies can have company-spanning networks; similarly, you can connect two or more computers at your home. A while ago, such networks were normally NOT connected to the Internet; the networks were set up to share resources such as printers, file servers, etc. Even today, every company and home that connects computers has its own network - thus, the Internet can be considered as a "network of…
A physical network is different from a logical network. Logical networks are defined at the Network layer by the arrangement of the hierarchical addressing scheme. Physical networks represent the interconnection of devices on a common media. Sometimes, a physical network is also referred to as a network segment
A bridge is a way to connect two networks. For example, if a user has two or more computers connected to a wired network, and one of those wired computers is connected to a wireless network, the computer connected to both the wired and wireless networks could be used as a bridge. With the bridged networks, the wired computers could access the wireless network.
