In general, there are three types of switching solutions: standalone, stacked, and chassis. As the middle child, I’m biased towards a stacked switching solution – my reasons may be skewed, but even within the stacking world there is stacking and then there is true stacking. One of the major benefits to all stacking is simplified management. Before stacking came along, you had to daisy chain multiple switches together and configure them separately by logging in with a different IP address one by one.
While we can’t advise you on which streaming service to use (although season one of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is now available on Netflix… by the power of GreySkull anyone?) or which kitchen gadget is the best, we can talk switches. We think the new Nintendo Switch is pretty sweet, but at CXtec our true expertise lies in networking technology.
