What is a Router? A Foundry Router is a network router is the centerpiece of any network. On the OSI model, a Foundry Router is known as a Level 3 device. A Router functions to connect a network to the world-wide web so they can communicate and transfer data and information with other networks. Routers perform two functions, path determination and switching.

Path Determination: As we discussed on the Foundry switches page, networks are connected to one another via routers . These routers take gpackets of information and route them to their destination. Foundry Routers support MPLS networks, which can help to engineer traffic and improved speeds. MPLS is a process by which incoming packets are assigned a label and forwarded to the Label Switch Router (LSR), which makes a intelligent decision about the assigned label. Once received, the router replaces the existing label with a new one that informs the next LSR how to handle the packet.

Switching: Routers also usually have a built in switch to allow computers on the network to “talk” to each other so you can use them to build a network. Foundry Routers also have built-in firewalls and security software like IronShield, which filter out threats on the Internet.
