Business networks can refer to one site (A Local Area Network
) or multiple sites (A Wide Area Network). Your Local Area Network (LAN) is everything that allows your office to connect to each other and the outside world- obviously, your computers, printers, monitors as well as your switch/router, cable connectors and your power supply. Your Wide Area Network (WAN) refers to your connectivity between offices or networks over a great distance. Depending on the level of privacy and bandwidth you need for this inter-connectivity you may run your WAN over the internet, over secure VPN
, a fixed line Point to Point, a MPLS network or a VPLS Network. If you need help with your LAN or WAN, you’ve come to the right place!
Different types of Business Network Components:

Good to know…
- Leased Fibre Point to Points refer to unmanaged wires in the ground from one site to another… no matter which provider you choose it’ll be the same… so this time cheapest is the best!
- MPLS and VPLS will connect your offices together securely all over the world.
- You can use any internet connection to connect into your WAN, whether it’s a basic broadband connection or a 10 GB Leased Line.
