How Routers Work

In technical terms, a router is a Layer 3 network gateway device, meaning that it connects two or more networks and that the router operates at the network layer of the OSI model.

Routers contain a processor (CPU), several kinds of digital memory,and input-output (I/O) interfaces. They function as special-purpose computers, one that does not require a keyboard or display.

The router's memory stores an embedded operating system (O/S). Compared to general-purpose OS products like Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS, router operating systems limit what kind of applications can be run on them and also need much smaller amounts of storage space. Examples of popular router operating systems include Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS)and DD-WRT. These operating systems are manufactured into a binary firmware image and are commonly called router firmware.

    We stock a variety of Cisco routers in both the Branch and Network Edge ranges at multiple different price points. There are several things to consider when purchasing a new router for your business. Since routers can range in price from around $500 to over $10,000; simply choosing the lowest or highest priced option isn't necessarily a catch all.

    Here are a few things to consider:

    1. Do you need a fixed or wireless solution?
    2. Choose the right routing protocol to build a scalable and stable DMVPN. Some of the most common routing protocols include IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP.
    3. What kind of security do you need?
    4. What is the maximum throughput of the router and does the router allow for adequate expansion in the future?
    5. What level of management tools does the router allow?

    Cisco has you covered for all eventualities and IT Yuda are more than happy to assist with finding the outer that fits your needs.
