FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A network switch facilitates communication between devices and the transfer of data via network cables. Explore the wide variety of Allied Teleisi switches available, such as Access Switches, Distribution Switches, Core switches, Managed Switches, Unmanaged Switches, Industrial Switches, PoE switches, accessories and more.

A network switch is a device that connects multiple devices within a local area network (LAN) and facilitates communication between them. It operates at the data link layer of the OSI model and is responsible for forwarding data packets to their intended destination devices based on their MAC addresses. Essentially, a network switch acts as a central hub for devices to connect to and communicate with each other efficiently within a network. It enables devices to transfer data between each other seamlessly, improving network performance, reliability, and security compared to traditional hubs or routers.

There are generally four main types of network switches: managed, unmanaged, PoE, and industrial switches. Managed Switches: Allied Telesis offers managed switches that provide administrators with full control over network configuration, monitoring, and management. These switches may include features such as VLAN support, Quality of Service (QoS), and access control lists (ACLs).

Unmanaged switches are simpler devices designed for plug-and-play operation without the need for manual configuration. They are ideal for small businesses or home networks that require basic connectivity without advanced features.

PoE switches provide power and data connectivity to PoE-enabled devices such as IP cameras, wireless access points, and VoIP phones over a single Ethernet cable. Allied Telesis offers PoE switches with various power budgets and port densities to suit different deployment scenarios.

Industrial switches are ruggedized devices designed to operate reliably in harsh environments such as industrial automation, transportation, and outdoor installations. They often feature wide temperature ranges, shock and vibration resistance, and protection against electromagnetic interference.

An Ethernet switch is like a traffic cop for your internet connection. It directs data between devices (like computers, printers, and smartphones) in a network, making sure each piece of information goes to the right place quickly and efficiently. Consider Allied Telesis Ethernet switches for our reliability, advanced features, scalability, cost-effectiveness, and customer support.

While both Ethernet switches and routers are used to connect devices in a network, switches are used to connect devices within a single network segment and forward data at the data link layer, whereas routers are used to connect multiple networks together and route data between them at the network layer.
