Just as switches no longer just 'switch' (see Intelligent Switching Solutions), routers no longer just 'route'. Historically routers have been used to connect multiple networks, for example networks with differing physical characteristics, or networks using differing protocols.
Today, the router has evolved from a simple connection-orientated device to a device that supports many other functions above and beyond just routing.
Multi-service routers are now deployed offering advanced services such as security, voice, wireless, WAN optimisation, and intrusion prevention (IPS). The ability to deploy multiple services within a single device can lead to reduced capital and operating expenses, especially for Small Medium Businesses (SMB) or Enterprises with, for example, many remote or branch offices.
Through deploying advanced network services on a router platform, instead of disparate and isolated devices as has traditionally been the approach, organisations can realise real benefits through the tight integration of application and network infrastructure. The application therefore becomes just another layer of network service with all the inherent benefits of security, scalability, adaptability, and enhanced management.
