An Ethernet switch (or network switch) is the smart, central hub that allows for communication between devices within an Ethernet network. It connects all the computers, printers, servers, and storage devices in the office, giving employees access to shared resources.

Ethernet switches can be used at home, in a small office, or at a location where multiple machines need to be connected. There are three basic kinds of switches: managed, web-smart, and unmanaged, with port counts from a handful all the way up to 48 (or more). Which you choose depends largely on the size of your network and how much control you need over that network.

Choose from a wide selection of managed, web-smart, and unmanaged switches with options including standalone, rackmount, and hardened enclosures, port counts, speed, uplinks, L2 capabilities, and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Use the filtering options, and our selector will recommend a product for you.

Commercial

Designed for SMB, enterprise, and data center applications, most Commercial Ethernet Switches operate at temperatures of 0 to 40° C and do not publish shock and vibration specs.
