Router, Switch & Firewall Service

What are they?

What are Routers, Switches and Firewalls?

Router

A router is a device connected to a network which forwards data between a computer or network and other networks. A router connects two or more lines of data originating from different networks. It’s what a computer or other device gets plugged into to get an internet connection or it’s what gives off a wireless internet signal.

Switch

A switch looks like a router but only connects lines of data within one network.

Firewall

A firewall is a network security system which coordinates network traffic based on an applied rule set. A firewall can be either a piece of hardware or a software program which helps keep out viruses, worms and hackers.

We Supply Routers
