To create a seamless connection between all your devices and the internet, you need a network switch. This device receives and broadcasts data from each connected device via data packets and prevents network clogging. An ideal network switch must be fast, intelligently sort data packets, and enable multiple connections. With the right switch, all your devices will have an easier time communicating with each other, and you’ll have an easier time controlling them, too.

Whether you are opening a new office or looking to replace your current switch, this article will help explain the differences in the new technology and help you make an informative decision when shopping for a new switch.
