Lancashire, UK – 2023

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, one of the critical decisions that companies must make is choosing between WAN and LAN to meet their connectivity needs. As a leading provider of secure and reliable SD-WAN solutions, we understand the importance of making an informed choice that aligns with your business goals.

A WAN (Wide Area Network) is a network that connects devices over a large area, like between cities, while a LAN (Local Area Network) connects devices within a small area, like a building. WANs are useful for organisations with multiple branches in different locations, as they allow employees to communicate and share resources across locations. WANs can also be used for remote access, which allows users to access resources from a different location, such as when working from home or traveling.

EvolveWAN is best used for optimising and securing network traffic between different sites, cloud-based applications, and remote workers. It provides organisations with an efficient and cost-effective way to manage their WAN connections, improve application performance, and enhance security. With EvolveWAN, organisations can prioritise traffic based on business criticality, dynamically route traffic to the most optimal path, and reduce latency by leveraging multiple network paths. 

EvolveWAN also provides end-to-end encryption and security, protecting the organisation’s data against cyber threats. Overall, EvolveWAN is best used for tasks that require efficient, secure, and reliable connectivity across different locations, particularly in situations where traditional WAN technologies may not be able to deliver the required performance or security.

A LAN (Local Area Network) serves as the foundation for internal communications within a limited geographic area, typically confined to a single office building or campus. LANs are typically faster than WAN as they span less distance and have less congestion however the reduced speed of a WAN network may not actually be perceived by users. Typically, a LAN network would be suitable for a smaller area than WAN for example home Wi-Fi.

Whether you are a small business looking to expand or a large enterprise seeking optimised network infrastructure, Evolve’s expert team is here to support you every step of the way. With Evolve’s reliable SD-WAN solutions, your business can thrive in today’s competitive landscape, staying connected, agile, and ready to seize opportunities on a global scale.
