Wide Area Network:

Wide Area Network (WAN) is defined as a computer network diffused over a physical area that use data networks to connect through way of internet and telephone (i.e., any network whose communications links cross metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries). This is in contrast with personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs), campus area networks (CANs), or metropolitan area networks (MANs) which are usually limited to a room, building, campus or specific metropolitan area (e.g., a city) respectively.
