What is an HP Network Switch?
HP Network Switches connect devices together on a computer network, by using packet switching to receive, process and forward data to the destination device. Unlike less advanced network hubs, a network switch forwards data only to one or multiple devices that need to receive it, rather than broadcasting the same data out of each of its ports.
A network switch is a multiport network bridge that uses hardware addresses to process and forward data at the data. Some HP switches can also process data at the network layer by additionally incorporating routing functionality that most commonly uses IP addresses to perform packet forwarding; such switches are commonly known as multilayer switches.
