Why would you need a switch? Although they provide the same connectivity for your network cables as hubs, switches give you far superior network performance. They do this by increasing the network's available data bandwidth (the maximum capacity of the network for moving data). Instead of sharing the total available bandwidth among all connected users, as a hub does, a switch gives each attached network device its own dedicated amount of bandwidth.

For example, any 10 Mbps hub will offer 10 Mbps of bandwidth to be shared among all devices attached to it. An equivalent switch will offer 10 Mbps of bandwidth for exclusive use by each attached device. Performance will be much faster. It is further increased if the switch supports full-duplex links like the Baseline switches. Switches operate by learning the unique MAC address of each network device on your LAN, and by knowing which port each one is connected through. The Baseline Switch communicates with other network devices at a speed of 10 Mbps, and has two 10/100 Mbps links capable of running at 100 Mbps for fast links to servers or the network backbone. The Baseline 10/100 Switch, is capable of communicating with other network devices at up to 100 Mbps on all ports for the ultimate in high-speed connectivity.
