Wide Area Networks

What is a wide area network?

This term describes the method by which many individual sites are connected together using point to point connections or the internet. Each site will typically have its own LAN and the creation of a wide area network (WAN) is to enable sharing of resources across sites. A WAN will have higher levels of security than a LAN because it is more exposed to third parties.
