What is the switch?

 
A switch, as its name suggests, refers to a switch that provides shared services to any two network nodes that access the switch. 
 
The exchange is based on the need to transmit information at both ends of the communication, and the method of using manual equipment to transmit the information to be transmitted to the corresponding route. This is the concept of the switch. 
 
Today, switches are more oriented to application requirements, and the extensive use of broadband has greatly increased the demand for switches.
