Switching & Routing

About Switching & Routing

Switching and Routing is the backbone of all wide area data networks including the Internet. From the LAN (Local Area Network) to the WAN (Wide Area Network), Ethernet data can be efficiently distributed to servers, desktops, and fixed wireless equipment.

Routers are located virtually everywhere from the home routers using DSL, Cable and Fixed Wireless to the backbone of the Internet using such protocols as OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) and BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) to efficiently route critical data across the world.

Network switches have been the backbone of all LANs (Local Area Networks). Efficiently forwarding Ethernet packets at speeds up to 100 Gbps (Gigabits per second), they have allowed us to scale our networks to hundreds of thousands of devices.
