What You Need to Know About Wavelength WAN Services
WAN connectivity is a network connection that links two or more locations. It enables the sharing of resources and information between offices, branches, and partners in different geographic areas.
The traditional way to connect branch offices to headquarters has been with dedicated leased lines – high-speed circuits provided by carriers like AT&T or Verizon Business (formerly MCI). However, there are several drawbacks associated with this approach. For one thing, it’s expensive; for another, it requires significant management overhead due to the need to provision each circuit separately.
