  • Differences Between Switches and Hubs
    A hub, also known as a repeater, is a simple device that connects Ethernet nodes. Hubs forward data packets they receive from a single workstation to ALL ports. All users connected to a single hub or interconnected hubs share the same bandwidth. As nodes are added to the network, they compete
  • The Difference Between Ethernet Hubs and Managed Switches
    All Ethernet hubs and switches are basically designed to facilitate the interconnection of multiple devices on an Ethernet network. They typically offer three or more Ethernet ports to allow connection to Ethernet devices such as computers, controllers, RTUs, I/O, other hubs/switches, etc
  • Ethernet switches
    An Ethernet switch is an electronic device that manages connections on Ethernet networks. An example of a managed Ethernet switch: The MCS Series carries sixteen 10/100 TX ports with a multimode fiber option. It handles control protocols such as Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP and provides

    , and ever more factory gear is not only networked but also has its own IP address. No wonder, then, that the networks to which these devices connect is becoming more complicated. Industrial networks are increasingly likely to make use of Ethernet switches, hubs, and other connective equipment

    modem, hub, or switch. The two ends of an Ethernet patch cable look identical, with the colored wires appearing in the same order on each plug. An Ethernet crossover cable, sometimes called a reversed-wire network cable, features two of the four data wires (usually in a solid color) reversed
  • Smart Computing Article - Create A Hybrid Network
    Add A Pinch Of Wireless In most instances, your existing wired network consists of two or more computers networked with Ethernet patch cable and some form of central connecting device, such as a hub, router, or switch. If you re sharing your Internet connection, then you likely have another length

    networkable devices. A switch is essentially a piece of hardware (sometimes embedded in a router or hub) that filters and quickly forwards data from its source to its intended destination. Switches are more useful in large networks where data traffic gets too cumbersome for a simple hub or router.

    between the network adapter ports of your computers and a central networking device, such as a hub, router, or switch. This central device manages the incoming and outgoing data to make sure it gets where it needs to go. For more information on installing a wired cable network, see Getting
