Advantages and Disadvantages of Wide Area Network Services

Wide Area Network is also known as Wide Area Network or Wide Area Linkage. It is an extension of the Local Area Network. Wide Network has several advantages and disadvantages compared to the Local Area Networks. Wide Network supports data packets of billions of bits per second (bps), much more than the Local Area Networks (LANs). The speed of Wide Area Network is way beyond the LANs and therefore makes Wide Area Networks the best option for high bandwidth data transfer.

Wide Area NetworkBroadband internet connection is one of the main reasons behind Wide Area Network. It provides a fast internet connection because of its high capacity and faster transmission over long distances. A wide Network is using to transfer a large amount of data at a very high speed and reduced expense on equipment. Various Wide Area Networks are used for communication, internet access, etc.

One Wide Area Network is made up of several local access points or nodes. Each node in a Wide Area Network is connected to the rest of the Wide Area Networks via routers. This process makes Wide Area Networks more efficient and reliable as each node can serve as a gateway to the rest of the Wide Area Networks. In a Wide Network, every point is associated with a specific IP address, thereby providing better security.

Wide Network has several advantages compared to the traditional Local Area Networks. The most important advantage is that Wide Network allows connections to be established without the use of physical wires. This means, instead of using copper wires to connect, the network topology is determined by IP address and so all the computers that are connected via this Topology can get connected. On the other hand, in a LAN there is the requirement for a physical cable connection to all …
