What is a "Latent Network"? In the six years I've been studying and working with networks I've never come across...
the term, I would have to try and answer you by taking the word 'Latent' and feeding it through a dictionary :)
From my discovering I am led to believe that the term "Latent Network" seems to mean a network that is present but not visible or isn't showing any signs of existence.
I would believe that such a term could be used to describe a secure network perhaps; and if the interpretation is correct then a good and simple example could be a network behind a firewall of some type that isn't easily accessible or not accessible at all by any other network.
Do you have more questions about networking, VPN security or VoIP? Then visit Firewall.cx, one of the few websites recommended by Cisco Systems in its world class Cisco Academy program.
