Networking in a computer device context, or a computer network, is formed whenever two computing devices are connected to each other to exchange data.

Initially, this meant networking referred to metal cable connected networks, but with the advance of technology, computer networking expanded to include fibre optic connected networks, free space wireless connected networks (WiFi), Infra Red connected networks and free space light connected networks (LiFi).

Computer networks consist of the physical hardware to enable devices to communicate and exchange data, and the software protocols and applications that enable the devices to be able to communicate effectively with each other.
