Routers / Switches

Tech Squared uses routers and switches that are business grade.  While consumer, or Big Box stores can sell a business a router, rarely does that router have the functionality to properly firewall, report, and redirect ports in an effective manner.

Tech Squared also prefers switches that enable POE or Power Over Ethernet in the event you wish to install IP cameras, or VOIP phones, a POE switch will allow power to run on the same cable as the data, saving you a connection to to a power outlet.  This arrangement also allows for battery backup for all the phones in the event of a power outage by simply protecting the network switch equipment, and not each and every desk location.
