A Fiber Switch is a telecommunication device that receives a message from any device connected to it with the objective of transmitting the message to the specific device for which the message was meant; this facet makes the Fiber Optic Switch a more intelligent device than a hub, which receives a message and then transmits the message to all the other devices connected within its network. The Fiber Ethernet Switch plays an integral part in most modern Ethernet local area networks (LANs). Mid-to-large sized LANs contain a number of linked switches.
Small office/home office (SOHO) applications typically use a single Fiber Switch or an all-purpose converged device, such as a residential gateway to access small office/home broadband services akin to DSL or cable Internet. In most of these cases, the end-user device contains a router and components that interface to the particular physical broadband technology. User devices may also include a telephone interface for VoIP.
Our Fiber Switch products are divided into two main categories
Fiber Ethernet Switch
A Fiber Ethernet Switch operates at the data link layer of the OSI model to create a separate collision domain for each switch port. With 4 computers (e.g., A, B, C, and D) on 4 switch ports, any pair (e.g. A and B) can transfer data back and forth, while the other pair (e.g. C and D) also do so simultaneously, and the two conversations will not interfere with one another. In full duplex mode, these pairs can also overlap (e.g. A transmits to B, simultaneously B to C, and so on). In the case of a repeater hub, they would all share the bandwidth and run in half duplex, resulting in collisions, which would then necessitate retransmissions.
