At present, the Gigabit router products on the market, according to the actual comprehensive performance, can be divided into ordinary Gigabit router and full Gigabit router.
The fundamental difference between the two is whether the CPU achieves real Gigabit performance. Although ordinary Gigabit products often have network ports that support Gigabit speeds, their CPUs are still likely to follow the Intel IXP series, so their integrated hardware performance is still limited to less than 100M. In addition to Gigabit hardware support such as ports and motherboards, full-gigabit routers often use dedicated dual-core, multi-core or other higher-level CPUs, whose comprehensive efficiency can break through the restriction of 100M and achieve real Gigabit data processing capability.
For example, the well-known series of Wayos all-gigabit routers adopt high-performance network processors. Because the CPU efficiency of all-gigabit routers is high, it can add more application functions to the router system, and make its built-in firewalls, bandwidth management, network management and other functions more efficient. Improve the efficiency of the whole network.
Gigabit Router and Gigabit Router
Gigabit router: refers to a router with a wire port speed of Gigabit (1000Mbps).
100 Mbps Router: A router with a wire port rate of 100 Mbps.
The forwarding performance of routers is limited by the connection speed of ports, and the forwarding performance of 100-mega routers can only reach 100-mega. Therefore, it is recommended that a 100-mega broadband router be used to maximize the performance of broadband.
