➽ WAN: How do I identify a “WAN (Wide Area Network)” connection and what is it?

Wide Area Network (WAN) connections provide broadband transport between schools and/or buildings within a district as shown below. These connections DO NOT include any Internet access circuits that directly connects a district or school to an Internet Service Provider. If the funding request you are applying for reflects Wide Area Network connections, make sure the purpose is identified as “Transport” AND you select “Yes” for WAN.
