Metropolitan Area Network. A high-speed data network that connects multiple Local Area Networks (LANs) spanning a metropolitan area, like a town or city. A MAN is larger than a LAN which takes in a building or a campus, but is smaller than a Wide Area Network (WAN) which typically takes in a wider geographic range.
