by spatial scope
A metropolitan area network (MAN) is a "computer network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic area or region larger than that covered by even a large "local area network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a "wide area network (WAN). The term MAN is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network which may then also offer efficient connection to a wide area network. It is also used to mean the interconnection of several local area networks in a metropolitan area through the use of "point-to-point connections between them. The latter usage is also sometimes referred to as a "campus network.
