What is a Wide Area Network (WAN)? 

WAN is a collection of computers and network resources connected via a network over a geographic area. Wide-Area Networks are commonly connected either through the Internet or special arrangements made with phone companies or other service providers. In a WAN, one network may be anywhere from several hundred miles away, to across the globe in a different country.

What are the benefits of a Wide Area Network (WAN)? 

The principal advantage of a WAN is its size. By linking multiple sites together, LANs allow communication between entities on different sides of the country or even the other side of the world. This can be especially beneficial for businesses, allowing them to centralise key operations.

WAN technology can be used to access network resources remotely, including other WANs or LANs. For example, a company could allow its employees to access its local network from home using their Internet connection. This can facilitate flexible working, which is ideal for sales man on the road.
