Routers and Switches and Hubs…Oh My!

Hubs, switches, and routers are all the same in the sense of connecting network devices with each other at one of three speeds. Most devices are capable of both 10Mbs and 100Mbs and will automatically detect the speed. If the device is only capable with one speed then it will only be able to communicate with switches that also support that speed. Gigabit devices (1Gbs) are starting to slowly become more common as well. Gigabit switches, e.g. our GC-EKI-2728-BE, can be used with these devices to utilize that faster speed.

The NET232 “junior” enables serial devices with IP technology in the smallest package available in the world (as far as we know!).
