INTRODUCTION+*-

The report is prepared to analyze the use of different WAN technologies and their role in increase the performance of the organization. London College of Education has been taken in the research and recognize the importance of trust systems in WAN. The project provides a detail glimpse about WAN and related evaluation techniques and models to overcome security related issues by using troubleshooting and firewall devices .

TASK 1

1.1Critically evaluate different WAN technologies

Dial-Up connection:

It can be used by organizations to establish connection to the internet. It requires phone line and proper set-up is essential before the communication transaction start. A dial-up connection is the cheapest method of connecting to the Internet and all the usage is charged on the basis of the telephone call and data transfer speed and performance.  This method is much safer as compare to other technology because unique IP address provides to every user and every time they can login with a new IP address, so cannot hacking an account (Carol, X. and et.al. 2013). It also provides convenience to user and it can be accessible from anywhere at any time without any interruption. Along with several benefits, some drawbacks of using dial-up connection are lagging behind in speed, unstable dial-u connection, demands a phone line, and many time phone route engaged etc. While many time people who wanted security will always miss it.

Broad band connection:

In this WAN technique, connection speed much faster is up to 100 times than dial-up connection and it does not affect the phone line. Users can use same type of telephone line for both voice/fax and data transmission and they does not have to go through the process of dialling up and logging every time. It does not require to a dial an access number and charged based on the connection duration. Broad band provides high internet access with cheap phone services via VoIP technology (Carol, X. and et.al. 2013). The major drawbacks of using broad band connection are high monthly charges against dial-up connection, higher security connection and lack of availability in rural area.
