Gigabit Switch vs Fast Ethernet Switch: What Is the Difference?
What type of Ethernet switch do I need?
The network infrastructure and number of users determine the number of switch ports needed. Common numbers of ports on network switches are 4, 8, 16, 24, and 48.
Industrial Unmanaged network switches allow for easy network expansion with no special configuration or knowledge needed. Industrial Layer 2 managed switches have additional features such as VLAN support, PoE controls, traffic analysis, and multicast support. For static and dynamic routing, including IP and VLAN communication, a Layer 3 network switch should be considered.
Industrial PoE switches reduces the need for expensive electrical wiring for separately powering devices to meet the demands of most common business scenario, and simplifies installation of such devices. Required bandwidth will determine whether a 10G, Gigabit, or 10/100 switch is needed. Fast Ethernet and 10/100 switches are cost-effective, but multi-gigabit and Industrial gigabit switches provide better scalability.
