How Switches Increase Speed

How Switches Increase Speed

This brief interactive activity, by the Electromechanical Digital Library and Wisconsin Technical College System faculty, explains clearly the reasons to use switches in place of hubs when using an LAN. The animations and corresponding explanations are helpful as the user clicks through each slide at his or her own pace. Animations can be viewed again and navigation is simple. At the end, review questions test the user's knowledge. This is a good resource for students and teachers alike to familiarize themselves with switches in this fast-paced technological world.
