A multi access network is a network which can have multiple (more than 2) machines participating in the network. A point to point network can have only 2 and a multi access network can have more than 2. The most common example of a multi access network is Ethernet (and FastEthernet etc).

Re: Multi Access Network

Multi-Access Network is often referred to a shared medium, like a hub/switch where multiple devices can connect and share resources. In the WAN, you have Frame-Relay/MPLS/ATM networks where devices share the same Frame-Relay/ATM/MPLS switch.
