Wide Area Networks

A Wide Area Network or WAN is a computer network covering a broad geographical area. Contrast with personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs) or metropolitan area networks (MANs) that are usually limited to a room, building or campus. The largest and most well-known example of a WAN is the Internet. WANs are used to connect local area networks (LANs) together, so that users and computers in one location can communicate with users and computers in other locations.

Case Study Published By: GlobalSCAPE     Published Date: Jan 08, 2008
In 2005, O’Hare International Airport began a project to relocate and modernize a 2.1 million ft.2 runway. Five independent firms worked on the project design with the IT/data management led by Milhouse Engineering and Construction, Inc.  Milhouse implemented GlobalSCAPE WAFS which mirrors critical files to all sites. This provided fast local access to all project files automatically without any administrative burden and with no delays.

Case Study Published By: GlobalSCAPE     Published Date: Jan 08, 2008
Patton Harris and Rust and Associates has 13 branches.  Management and IT needed a way to help these offices work on projects together to optimize company resources.  Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS gave PHR+A fast file access across branches using minimal system resources. No management is required as it operates in the background and real time byte level differencing not only reduces bandwidth usage and spikes but also the changes are sent as they happen – not when they are needed.

Case Study Published By: GlobalSCAPE     Published Date: Jan 08, 2008
Jordan & Skala Engineers is a growing company with 5 offices.  It needed a scalable solution to optimize their network and their resources as more and more work was distributed across sites. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS files mirror instantly in real time using byte-level differencing.  So as soon as a file is saved or closed, the file deltas appear in every other location on the network. Users are never waiting for files to upload, download, or open across a network.
