Routers Switches

Routers direct network data, using packets that contain various kinds of data—such as files, communications, and simple transmissions like web interactions.

The data packets have several layers, or sections, one of which carries identifying information such as sender, data type, size, and most importantly, the destination IP address. The router reads this layer, prioritizes the data, and chooses the best route to use for each transmission.

Routers can also provide security. Embedded firewall and content filtering software provide an additional protection from unwanted content and malicious websites.

Types of routers

Core router

Core routers are generally used by Telecom service providers or cloud providers. They provide maximum bandwidth to connect additional routers or switches.

Edge router

An edge router, also called a gateway router is a network's outermost point of connection with external networks, including the Internet.

Edge routers are optimized for bandwidth and designed to connect to other routers to distribute data to end users.


Distribution router

A distribution router, or interior router, receives data from the edge router (or gateway) via a wired connection and sends it on to end users, typically via Wi-Fi, though the router usually also includes physical (Ethernet) connections for connecting users or additional routers.

Wireless router

Wireless routers, or residential gateways, combine the functions of edge routers and distribution routers. These are commonplace routers for home networks and Internet access.


Virtual router

Virtual routers are pieces of software that allow some router functions to be virtualized in the cloud and delivered as a service. These routers are ideal for large businesses with complex network needs. They offer flexibility, easy scalability, and a lower entry cost. Another benefit of virtual routers is reduced management of local network hardware.
