Wide Area Networks (WANs)
From startups to national organisations - nowadays all businesses need to have a good connection to embrace the opportunities the digital age brings. A WAN can give you the advantage over your competitors.
The benefits of a WAN
Many companies and organisations choose to have a WAN connection because it helps them improve the service they offer, share information quickly and also reduce their costs.
There are numerous benefits of a dedicated, private WAN connection. For example, your business can:
- Save money by sharing devices and applications
- Improve collaboration due to effective file sharing
- Access instant messaging
- Keep data secure and backed up
- Prioritise key applications, like voice
- Use a reliable internet connection
At Commsworld, we offer two types of WAN connection - a wires-only Layer 2 VPLS or a fully managed Layer 3 VPN (L3VPN) solution.
What is Layer 3 VPN?
End to end full management means the network performance can be managed centrally and we can offer a service-level agreement.
Our firewall is also available across all your sites and remotely, so your business will always be protected from cyber threat.

How much does WAN cost?
The price of WAN depends on your business requirements. We offer a number of flexible solutions, which are easily scaled, so your network can grow to accommodate your evolving business needs.
A range of financial models are available depending on the technologies utilised.
We’ve deployed dozens of WANs for national IT integrators, public sector organisations and some of Scotland’s most successful blue chip companies. Our wide reaching network means there isn’t a corner of the country we can’t serve.
We oversee every part of the process - from installation and project management, to support and maintenance. We can even help you pick the best equipment for your WAN solution and help you decide which type of connection will best suit your business needs.
Your WAN sites are connected over a private network, not the internet. We fully own and operate a Fluency network, so your company can benefit from your own private WAN across multiple sites. Fluency offers fibre optic connectivity, and therefore a more reliable, powerful connection, with better security.
With our fully managed WAN service, we also offer WAN optimisation to deal with any performance issues, including compression, local caching, deduplication and traffic shaping.
