You are talking apples and oranges.
A GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communication, notice, the word “mobile”, that is the key difference, while the WAN, stands for Wide Area Network.  In better understanding, the Internet.

So, since you have mobile devices, phones, tablets, iPads, and other items, they would be part of the GSM, which would then connect to the WAN.

You can have a WAN without the GSM, but, you cannot have a GSM without the WAN.

    Assuming this query based on home work/ course, it is better to ask your faculty/ source or give some quality time to understand.

    Well, they're two different things, so there are huge differences even if they're both related to communications networks. You should simply run internet searches for the two terms, read the definitions, and see how they compare. Anything we write will just be copies of what's already out there.

    dear agoussec,

    WAN is not a local network, it is a wide area network ,the internet you are using is kind of super WAN, before commenting make sure you know the answers.

    His question makes sense. WAN in general is used to represent the wide area network used by internet but GSM technology also uses its own WAN for communication.
