Frequently asked questions

What is managed WAN?

WAN stands for ‘Wide Area Network’. This type of network is typically used by businesses and organizations to connect multiple locations together over a single private network, improving speed, security and monitoring capabilities.  

A WAN may be used to securely connect multiple offices to a central server(s) at Head Office, or, more commonly in today’s world, to securely connect multiple branches to private or public Cloud applications with improved network speeds.  

As a Sharp WAN customer, you will benefit from an interconnected upstream network of tier 1 partners in New Zealand, Australia and the United States, offering high speed symmetrical Internet services and dedicated connectivity to some of the world’s largest public cloud environments, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon (AWS) and Oracle.
