The Function of Network Switches
Every linked computer system will need switching hubs to pull together their networks.
Most Ethernet local area networks (LANs) will use at least one (as in the case of small office or home offices), and mid-to-large sized LANs will use a series of several linked devices.
Standard network switches in Virginia would allow several computers to effectively communicate with each other without interfering with other communications.
For example, if computers A, B, C, & D were connected to an Ethernet switch, then A & B could exchange data while C & D could simultaneously exchange data as well.
The switching device would ensure there is neither miscommunication nor interference.
Without a switch your network’s bandwidth would be inefficiently utilized, and therefore end up requiring retransmission of certain packets of data as data collisions would occur.
With a hub switch, all the computers utilizing the ports would share some of the bandwidth.
The switching process, called microsegmentation, would ensure that each computer would be allotted dedicated bandwidth on point-to-point connections with every other computer, thereby avoiding any need for retransmissions.
Different Commercial and Business Switches
A network switch in Virginia can operate on one or several OSI layers (OSI stands for “Open Systems Interconnection”; it is merely the method of breaking down a network with a model standardized for all networks, established in the late 70s) of your communication system.
They can exist on the physical, network, data link, or transport (end-to-end) layers.
If your switching device is operating on several layers simultaneously, then it would be known as a “multilayer switch”.
Other types of switches can be used to connect different types of networks; this includes (but not limited to) 802.11, Fibre Channel, ITU-T G.hn, and Ethernet. These tend to be higher layer switches which connect these different technologies establishing an efficient infrastructural link.
