About this Report

This report is intended to help buyers of network routers. Routers are computer-networking devices that forward data packets from one computer to another while also receiving data packets from other computers. Routers guide data traffic through their internal routing tables and protocols in order to direct it to its final destination. Network administrators can typically access routers to control, monitor and manage data traffic as well as users on the network. Generally, router suppliers cater to businesses in all industries, regardless of size, that seek to connect their internal networks to the internet. This report excludes hybrid router and modem devices as well as modems and switches.
