Should you consider WAN for your business?
WAN stands for Wide Area Network, which is a network that spans over a large geographical area, such as cities, states, or even countries. Unlike Local Area Networks (LANs), which are typically confined to a single building or office, WANs connect multiple LANs together to form a larger network. This is one of our specialties here at DataUp.
WANs are essential for many businesses as they allow for seamless connectivity and transfer of large amounts of data between different locations. This is particularly important for companies with multiple branches or remote workers as it allows teams who span over large geographical areas to work seamlessly together in real time.
DataUP can help implement WANs by providing the necessary hardware and software components, such as routers, switches, and network management tools. We can also offer consulting services to help businesses design and optimize their WAN infrastructure to meet their specific needs. Additionally, DataUP can provide ongoing support and maintenance services to ensure that the WAN is reliable and operates smoothly and securely all the time.
WAN solutions are commonly used in larger organisations with multiple offices or branches, but it is becoming increasingly popular with smaller businesses too. This is because of the ability to maximize communication abilities across teams especially with the rise in remote work and working from home.
How to know if WAN is right for your business:
|Strengths of WAN solutions
|Weaknesses of WAN solutions
|Can reduce the traffic your company is transmitting to remote locations.
|Known to transmit data at much slower speeds than LANs. Often at about 1.5 megabits per second or less, rather than the tens, hundreds or thousands often achieved by LANs.
|Consolidates all resources into one central data centre or larger data centres that are scattered across your enterprise, making data easily accessible, with no time lag.
|Users often do not own the communication lines connecting their networks. Meaning the user must subscribe to the service via a telecommunications provider.
|Allow businesses to help manage costs.
|Help to ensure your organisation’s data is securely protected, yet easily available to your staff.
|Offer a more responsive infrastructure.
