WAN Technologies

Chapter 8 from Step Up to Networking, published by Microsoft Press

WANs are all about exchanging information across wide geographic areas. They are also, as you can probably gather from reading about the Internet, about scalability—the ability to grow to accommodate the number of users on the network, as well as to accommodate the demands those users place on network facilities. Although the nature of a WAN—a network reliant on communications for covering sometimes vast distances—generally dictates slower throughput, longer delays, and a greater number of errors than typically occur on a LAN, a WAN is also the fastest, most effective means of transferring computer-based information currently available.

Wan Technology Characteristics

This excerpt from 'The Shortcut Guide to Optimizing WAN Application Delivery' introduces current and existing WAN environments and technologies. Topics include point-to-point links, circuit and packet switching methodologies, virtual circuits, dial-up services, and WAN endpoint devices.

SD-WAN

SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN). An SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling (separating) the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation.[1]

CCDA DESGN 640-864: Designing Remote Connectivity > Identifying WAN Technology Considerations

Connectivity to remote locations such as the Internet, branches, offices, and teleworkers is provided through enterprise edge technologies and the enterprise WAN architecture. Infrastructure support is provided at the remote locations with enterprise branch architectures.

To connect to remote locations, WAN technologies and WAN transport media must be utilized when considering ownership, reliability, and backup issues. In addition, WAN remote access choices include cable and DSL technologies that are used with Virtual Private Networks (VPN). The enterprise branch is a remote location that is smaller than an enterprise campus and can use a simpler architecture.

LAN vs WAN

What is a LAN?

Local area networks (LANs) allow computers and devices that are near each other — and usually making use of the same switch or router — to connect to share files and complete tasks. Consisting only of everyday devices (e.g., desktops, laptops, tablets, printers), router and/or switch, and Ethernet cables or wireless cards, LANs are relatively inexpensive to set up and are commonly used in homes.
