, also known as switching hubs,are multi-port network bridges that process and route data. Essential in creating a robust networking infastructure, switches play a pivotal role in most Ethernet local area networks (LANs).
Unmanaged switches have no configuration interface or options and are typically used in homes or small businesses. Managed switches allow modification of operation and are available as either Smart or Fully Managed. Smart switches, also referred to as intelligent switches, are cost-effective with a limited set of management features. Fully Managed Switches, sometimes called Enterprise Managed Switches, offer a full set of management features and are most suited to large organisations and corporates with a large network. Form factors also vary and switches are available either as desktop devices or rack mounted.
