Wide Area Networks (WANs)

Though I didn’t consider dial-up to be a “WAN”, it was my first experience with remote access. Newport systems add-in boards to Novell servers, Cisco, and 3Com routers over ISDN and T1 lines, and eventually as an AT&T partner designing, installing, and maintaining one of the largest frame relay networks in the USA. Today with our internet VPNs and security now an intricate part of every remote experience, this continues to be an interest of mine.
