WHAT FUNCTIONS DOES A NETWORK SWITCH PERFORM?

1. DEVICE TO DEVICE CONNECTION: A network switch is a communications device that receives a message from any device connected to it and then transmits the message only to the device for which the message is meant. Typical network switches use Ethernet based cables to connect to the devices. These devices could be computers, storage systems, printers, plotters and much more.
 
2. CAMPUS WIDE DEVICE CONNECTION: Further, network switches can be interconnected together to form a more sophisticated switching fabric with larger capacity and number of ports for connecting devices, often called Local Area Network (LAN). LANs are usually found within an enterprise's campus or a building. Mid-to-large sized LANs used by enterprises contain a number of such interconnected switches. 

3. MANAGEMENT: Enterprise grade switches also have capability to be managed, which means a network engineer can perform diagnostics, monitor its operation and receive alerts when the switch detects errors. These are extremely useful to identify the problems and correct them quickly.
