I am studying for my CCNA and my current topic is related to WANs, and I need some clarity on certain things.
Here is a topology I've quickly built. (Don't mind the IP addressing, I've have purposely skipped that.
My questions related to this are
- Since those two routers connect two sites that are far apart, geographically distinct for example, does this mean that the connection between those routers is a WAN, then?
- The connection between such routers isn't just a single cable connecting both sites, right? Each router has a WAN cable provided by the ISP that connects to the ISP and the ISP does the job of connecting those two sites? Like this?
- Could those two sites communicate now, even without the use of the internet? If there is a WAN connection between them.
