shared media LAN - Computer Definition
A local area network (LAN) that shares its total available bandwidth with all transmitting stations at any given time. Ethernet, Token Ring and FDDI are examples. When shared media LANs run out of capacity to serve their users effectively, they can often be upgraded by replacing the hub with a switch. See LAN switch.
