Network Switches

Most business networks today use switches to connect computers, printers, phones, cameras, lights, and servers in a building or campus.

A switch serves as a controller, enabling networked devices to talk to each other efficiently. Through information sharing and resource allocation, switches save businesses money and increase employee productivity.

Different types of Ethernet switches
Next, you’ll need to understand the different types of Ethernet switches and their capabilities. There are two basic types of switches to choose from as part of your networking basics: managed and unmanaged.

  • An unmanaged switch works out of the box but can’t be configured. Home-networking equipment typically offers unmanaged switches.
  • A managed switch can be configured. You can monitor and adjust a managed switch locally or remotely, giving you greater control over network traffic and access.
