Integrated service network routers and local-area network switches are critical to effective communications systems.
The network router is quickly evolving from a device dedicated to connecting disparate networks to an integrated services device capable of multiple functions beyond routing. Routers serve as building blocks for enterprise communications including voice, video, data and wireless access.
Integrated services can help businesses through increased productivity and reduced capital and operating expenses. A small company with two offices can benefit as much as a company with hundreds of branch offices.
Switches at the network core
Local-area network (LAN) switches are at the core of all networks, providing high-speed connectivity, applications and communications systems. Today’s networks not only need to efficiently and securely transmit bandwidth-intensive data, voice, video and wireless applications, they also need to provide for evolving traffic patterns, new services and optimized application performance.
To meet current and future network needs, all LAN switch designs must have integrated security, be easy to manage and incorporate additional features relating to user experience, flexibility, consistency and uptime.
