The Evolving Role of the Network Router
The network router is evolving from a device dedicated to connecting disparate networks to an integrated services device capable of multiple functions.
The network router has quickly evolved to meet the changing needs of the
enterprise. The router has gone from being a basic box to an optimized hardware
and software platform that provide security, VPN, and performance. Voice & Data
discusses the new capabilities of an enterprise network router.
Organizations are increasingly deploying integrated services routers, or sophisticated network routers that can deliver voice, video, data, and Internet access, wireless, and other applications. Growing companies, especially those opening new offices, are taking advantages of integrated network router solutions that are highly secure, flexible, and built to be compatible with future technologies.
