Switches & Routers
Most business networks today use switches to connect computers, printers and servers within a building or campus. A switch serves as a controller, enabling networked devices to talk to each other efficiently. Through information sharing and resource allocation, switches save businesses the money and increase employee productivity. Switches create a network and Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it is received quickly.
