From data to voice and video to wireless access, business communications are founded on switches and routers. Both these devices look alike and perform similarly, but each serves a specific function on a network. Switches act as controllers that permit efficient communication among networked devices; they connect computers, printers and servers within a workplace or building. Routers are more advanced; while switches create networks, routers connect them. Routers allow network users to share the connection they create by linking computers to the Internet and other networks. They also ensure a quick receipt of information by selecting the optimal channel for information transmission.
Routers and switches provide numerous benefits, including:
- Boosting profitability by enhancing security and customer service, and cutting business expenditures through resource allocation.
- Increasing employee productivity via the sharing of information.
- Allowing the continued operation of larger networks throughout periods of redesign or power outages.
- Increasing available network bandwidth and decreasing the workload on individual computers, therefore improving network performance.
