Need a reliable and efficient way to connect Ethernet devices together? Hirschmann have a comprehensive selection of network hubs and Ethernet switches to choose from.
A network hub is a device which acts as a basic gateway to connect multiple Ethernet devices together, via ports on the device, so that they can function as a single network. This allows the Ethernet devices to interact and transfer data easily and securely. An Ethernet switch is similar to a hub but can provide better performance as they can devote more bandwidth to particular ports rather than sharing it equally. Hubs are therefore better suited to smaller networks while Ethernet switches are ideal for busier networks.
