Wide area network

A Wide Area Network (WAN) is a telecommunications network extending over a large geographical area and designed to connect computers or networks in distant locations. Spanning regions, countries, or even internationally,  WANs facilitate communication and data exchange between various users.

While their design, implementation and management require significant technical expertise and resources, WANs are a crucial component in modern business operations. By enabling remote work, cloud access and global communication, WANs allow businesses and employees to communicate and share resources across great distances on a large scale, contributing significantly to operational efficiency and business continuity.
