Understanding of LAN Switching

This lession covers an introduction to switching technology.


The earliest Local Area Network technologies that were installed widely were either thick Ethernet or thin Ethernet infrastructures. And it's important to understand some of he limitations of these to see where we're at today with LAN switching.With thick Ethernet installations there were some important limitations such as distance, for example. Early thick Ethernet networks were limited to only 500 meters before the signal degraded.In order to extend beyond the 500 meter distance, they required to install repeaters to boost and amplify that signal.There were also limitations on the number of stations and servers we could have on our network, as well as the placement of those workstations on the network.
