Connectivity and Traffic Routing across Internal and External Networks
Modern routers provide connectivity and traffic routing across internal and external networks and integrate security and analytics with traffic path optimization.
Different types of routers exist for businesses of different sizes, with some being virtual or software-defined. Generally, these are the common types of routers:
- Core routers: Used generally by service providers, large cloud providers, and large enterprise businesses, core routers provide core networking services to other routers connected to them.
- Edge routers: As the name implies, edge routers sit on the outermost point of a network and provide connectivity to Internet- and cloud services.
- Distribution routers: Often deployed internally to a business network, distribution routers manage traffic within “internal” networks or local area networks (LAN).
- Wireless routers: Typical use cases for wireless routers are for residences or small business/ranch offices needing a router, gateway, and perhaps switch in one device that also provides wireless connectivity.
- Virtual: Software-defined routers are for complex networking needs without ties to hardware.
