Buy switch online
With a switch you can include multiple network devices in your (company) network. Especially in large companies, the router has insufficient network connections to connect all computers, printers and other network equipment to each other and to the Internet. Network switches easily expand the number of Ethernet ports, so you can continue to grow your network and your business without any problems. Centralpoint has an extensive range of switches from brands such as tp-link, Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and NETGEAR. Which switch do you buy?
Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet?
Ethernet switches come in different types. An important difference is the speed of the switch. For example, there are fast ethernet switches and gigabit ethernet switches. Fast Ethernet sounds fast, but has a transfer speed of only 100Mbit/s. Gigabit Ethernet is ten times faster with a transfer of 1000Mbit/s. Note: these are theoretical maximum speeds. Pay attention to the speed of the current network and the included switches when purchasing new models. A few fast ethernet switches between all gigabit models create a bottleneck in the network.

Unmanaged or managed switches?
There is a difference between managed and unmanaged switches. An unmanaged switch basically works plug-and-play: you don’t need to configure it. A managed switch offers more setting options.
