Definition Edit

A network operating system is

[s]oftware that (a) controls a network and its message (e.g., packet) traffic, and queues, (b) controls access by multiple users to network resources such as files, and (c) provides for certain administrative functions, including security.[1]

Overview Edit

A network operating system is most frequently used with local area networks and wide area networks, but could also have application to larger network systems. The upper 5 layers of the Open Systems Interconnection-Reference Model provide the foundation upon which many network operating systems are based.[2]
