Question about Foundry Networks EdgeIron (EIF48GS) 48x1000 Mbps Networking Switch
What is the difrance bitween switch and hubs? and wht
Switches are smarter than hubs.
Lets say you have a switch with 16 ports, your computer is connected to port 2 and you are browsing the internet. You make a page request and when the reply comes back it hits the switch and the switch forwards the information to port 2.
This does not happen with a hub, the hub does not know you are on port 2, it sends the information to every port, in this case all 16 ports. In a low traffic environment a hub can be ok but it can cause a lot of unnecessary traffic on your network and slow it down.
If you have a choice pick a switch over a hub, there is not that much of a price difference these days.
