Network Equipment Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   Hub       Network hubs provide a central location for attaching wires to workstations. They can be passive or active. Passive hubs do not amplify signals. Active hubs are used like repeaters to extend the cable that connects to a workstation. 
   Switch       Network switches connect network devices to host computers. They allow a large number of devices to share a limited number of ports. Network switches are used both in computer networks and in telecommunications networks. Ethernet LAN switches use variable-sized packets or frames. ATM switches use small, fixed-sized cells for telecom applications. 
   Router       Network routers are protocol-dependent devices that connect sub-networks. Although they can separate a very large network into smaller sub-networks, routers introduce longer delays and typically have much lower throughput rates than network bridges. Routers operate at the Layer 3 network layer. 
   Repeater       Network repeaters are 802.3 network cable segments. Regeneration and retiming ensure that the signal is transmitted clearly through all segments. 
   Bridge       Network bridges interconnect local or remote networks. They centralize network administration by forming a single logical network. Bridges operate at the physical and link layers of the open systems interconnection (OSI) reference model. 
   Gateway       Network gateways are devices that can interconnect networks with different, incompatible communications protocols. They perform a Layer-7 protocol-conversion to translate one set of protocols into another (for example, from TCP/IP to SNA or from TCP/IP to X.25). Gateways operate at OSI layers up through the session layer. 
   Multiplexer       Network multiplexers are telecommunications devices that funnel multiple signals onto a single channel. 
   Transceiver       Network transceivers (transmitters-receivers) are devices that both transmit and receive analog or digital signals. 
   Firewall       Network firewalls are a system or group of systems that, for purposes of security, enforce an access control policy between an organization's network and the Internet.
