Routers and Switches
Routers and Switches are devices that forward data packets between computer networks. It sounds complicated, but they are basically devices that allow computers to communicate with one another. This means that you can view various pages on the internet, and other people can send communication to you and your team. Routers and Switches are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and getting them configured properly is one of the most important factors when making sure your network is running efficiently.
We don’t want to get technical here. Your network depends on Routers and Switches. Without these devices, a network cannot exist. Our trained technicians work with various devices for our many clients, and it’s quite likely that if you’re having trouble that we’ve seem something like it in the past. This means we can come in and quickly analyze the situation and make the required changes to get you back up and running with as little disruption as possible.
There are many kinds of routers and switches. Some have tremendous power and others are designed for smaller networks. You don’t want too much or too little. We’ll help you plan for a new system or an upgrade of your old network.
We can even simply make sure your routers and switches get installed and configured properly. A few settings that aren’t optimized can make a big difference in your network. We can help optimize your existing routers and switches for changing situations.
Access routers are located at customer sites that do not need hierarchical routing of their own. Typically, they are optimized for low cost.
These can be perfect for a small business and we can help you.
Distribution routers aggregate traffic from multiple access routers, either at the same site, or to collect the data streams from multiple sites.
This is usually for larger businesses, and we can help make sure your system is running in an optimized fashion.
Routers are a huge consideration when it comes to your security strategy. Separate from the router may be a firewall or VPN handling device, or the router may include these and other security functions.
We will help configure your security to keep your network safe.
A core router is for the largest enterprise locations. These are optimized for high bandwidth.
With a core router, there are a number of options, and making the right configuration choices is important.
