Core Switching, Edge Switching & Routing Solutions

At its most basic level, networking is all about connecting multiple systems and devices to each other in order to facilitate communication. A core switching solution is one that focuses on the central connection points of a network, incorporating powerful hardware and sophisticated software that make it easy to manage large amounts of data traffic.

How will our switching & routing solutions help?

There are many variables to consider when designing a network. Let our expertise guide you.

Network designs vary depending on the size and requirements of each organisation. For example, the networking infrastructure needs of a small organisation with fewer devices will be less complex than that of an infrastructure of a large organisation with a significant number of devices and connections.

Silver Lining is prepared to handle a network of any size or complexity to provide effective business broadband solutions as a cost-effective business internet server provider.

Core Switching

A core switch is the data switch that serves as the gateway to a wide area network. The core switch processes and forwards all traffic, making it critical to have a high performing core switch.

A key advantage of a core switch is backplane switching which allows for low data limitations to ensure maximum performance. Everything that connects to the core is serviced with redundancies to ensure maximum uptime.

Edge Switching

The edge switch is the on-ramp to the network, and if any user connects to the network, they will do so through the edge switch. All workstations, IP telephones, layer two switches or any other device in the network connects to the edge switch.

It has redundancies to ensure reliable network connectivity for users even when there is an equipment failure.

Routing

For routing we use a distribution layer, which aggregates received data from the access layer switches before transmitting to the core layer for routing to its final destination.

The distribution layer device is the focal point in the wiring closets. A router or a multilayer switch is used to segment workgroups and isolate network problems in a campus environment.
