Routing, Switching, Wireless & Security

Whether you need to design a new installation, modify an existing network or simply work with vendor to facilitate a smooth deployment, Electrical Sales Corporation's Network Engineers can help you design a network that will provide the performance, security and stability that your business needs.  This is achievable by bringing a unified, scalable vision to the "Core Networking" functions of business including Routing, Switching, Wireless, Security, LAN and WAN Optimization, Communications and Videoconferencing.

What type of Service Does My Company Need?
  • Routing is used to describe hardware and protocols that work together to make a decision about the path that network traffic takes to get from one area to another area - for example, from one office location to another or from your internal offices to the Internet.  Routers can communicate with each other to learn about the best path using routing protocols such as OSPF, EIGRP and BGP.
  • Switching describes the mechanism of joining computers together within one Local Area Network (LAN) for the purpose of communication.  By the use of Intelligent Switches that have Management capabilities, the switch can be virtually segmented into Virtual LANs (VLANs) without purchasing additional hardware.  The flow of traffic between these areas would be handled by a Router.
  • Wireless Ethernet is like switching, but with radio waves as the Transport.  The speed of the transmission depends on the capability of the clients and the radio and are outlined by a set of specifications collectively referred to as IEEE 802.11.  While most homes have a Wireless LAN, buisnesses have more square footage and more challenging environments that require a scalable, reliable and secure solution to expand the range of the Wireless LAN and keep record of who is accessing the network.
  • LAN and WAN Optimization is the process of ensuring that traffic flows on the local LAN and over the WAN following the shortest path with the greatest bandwidth without impediment - and with the most important traffic being preserved.  For example, it is most important that Voice communications be sent first, especially if there is congestion on the network.  Mechanisms for Quality of Service must be configured to ensure that the performance of the network executes to the customer's desire.
  • Unified Communications and Videoconferencing allow us to interact with each other effectively to increase efficiency and productivity through mechanisms such as Telephony, Instant Messaging and Video Conferencing.  The more connected we are, the better we can understand what needs to be done - and how we can help each other best to achieve our mutual goals.
