Supporting and designing complex network routing infrastructures can be a daunting task for even very seasoned networking experts. At Kumatech Inc. we employ Cisco certified routing experts & maintain a hardware and virtual lab environment where we can simulate & test almost any network infrastructure. We maintain and support clients with resilient network infrastructures built on Cisco and or Dell routers, layer3, layer2 switches, including dynamic routing and multipath WAN connectivity.
As a company grows the network must grow with it to support the critical resources users need to perform their job functions. Although typically a core, distribution, and access level of switching and related design addresses growth and scalability into the thousands of connected devices, much of what was typically seen at the enterprise level is becoming standard in the SMB market. For example a small client with a VoIP phone system and servers could need a switch capable of vlan routing and QOS for their VoIP communications. Large networks can benefit greatly by the use of limited broadcast domains & WAN application accelerators, smaller clients can use the same (now affordable) technology to achieve similar resiliency and traffic shaping results.
With the use of MPLS and EPL’s more and more ISP’s are providing transparent backend vpn routing allowing for traffic including 801.q tagged packets.
