Routing & Switching

Switches and routers are the traffic coordinators of your network infrastructure – moving packets of binary data from one component to another on the same network (e.g., application to database), or from one network to another (e.g., corporate network to Internet). As the numbers of IT infrastructure devices, applications, and network connections grow and traffic volume increases, so, too, does the importance of switches and routers to your network performance and user productivity.

Whether you are redesigning your network or building a new IT infrastructure, Custom IT engineering experts employ advanced routing and switching technologies to ensure the efficiency of your network infrastructure. Streamlined network traffic connections support easier management – as well as the critical high availability, performance, and scalability of your network infrastructure.

Getting Data from Here – to There

Custom IT engineering specialists recognize that efficiency in a network is the key to its performance. Getting data quickly from point A to point B is important. The paths, though, are not always constant. Networks are dynamic, and as traffic builds or links are down, different paths must be used.

Streamlining your network performance begins with the end in mind. Custom specialists gain a solid understanding of the the characteristics and priorities of your specific network:

  • Hardware, applications, and services
  • Traffic
  • Bandwidth
  • CPU usage
  • Number of users supported
  • Ease of deployment and management
  • Security requirements

Based on your specific needs, Custom utilizes technologies from leading manufacturers including Cisco, HP, and Dell – whose innovations in new switching and routing protocols enable cutting-edge features including transparent bridging and dynamic and on-demand routing. Different types of technologies, such as stacking technology for instance, reduce management points, optimize energy use and physical space, and allow for the addition of more ports to support new network components.

Custom configures your switches and routers for efficient management and information delivery – ensuring critical support for your IT infrastructure needs today, as well as planning for growth in terms of new applications and services that will support your business in the future.
