Routing and Switching

By definition, switching and routing are not the same thing. Switching involves moving packets between devices on the same network. Conversely, routing involves moving packets between different networks.  However, some of our services have to be name switch (just upstream or downstream switch) but the actually do routing functionalities.  For example, we serve payment point network to interface with other network (either belong to billers, banks or ohter switches).

This routing connectivity usually involves VPN and interfacing from other protocol to ISO8583 protocol.
