What is a switch? A network switch is a networking device that connects two or more nodes (computers) together within one Local Area Network (LAN). It “switches” the traffic between the two nodes. While there are different types of switches (Ethernet, Gigabit, 10GbE, etc) with various features and port densities, a network cannot exist without one. If you imagine each desktop computer (or node) as a house, switches act like streets connecting each computer in a network, allowing them to communicate and share network resources. Now imagine each network as a city, routers act like a freeway connecting one network to other networks. (more information on routers can be found at Foundry Routers). Want to learn more about the application uses of network switches, Foundry Networks offers a course on Network Switches
