Netgear Routers, Switches, And Hubs
Netgear produces a range of high-quality networking technology for all levels, from the home user to the high-end business user. PMC Telecom offers an expanding range of Netgear Routers, Switches, and Hubs.
Netgear is a brand that most people are familiar with. They are well-known for producing high-performance networking technology for a wide range of different levels and users. So, whether you are interested in improving your network at home or enhancing your internet connection or are looking to create a comprehensive broadband network within your office, Netgear routers, switches and hubs are the kinds of products you should be looking at.
Fortunately, at PMC Telecom, we have a wide selection of these products made by Netgear. With just under 30 years’ worth of experience in the industry, the company has continued to go from strength to strength.
If you are in the market for broadband or network equipment and components, though, and are new to these solutions, and find some of the jargon a little overwhelming and confusing, don’t worry as we are here to help.
Before you can choose the Netgear routers, switches, or hubs you need, after all, you need to know the difference between them.
What are Routers?
Routers are the most intelligent of these three pieces of hardware. They are normally small computing devices that are designed to perform the specific job of understanding, manipulating, and directing traffic. Routers feature a user interface that allows you to instruct them where to send the traffic.
Primarily, the function of these devices is to connect two or even more, networks together and direct relevant traffic to and from them. Take, for example, your business may use routers to manage the connections between the internet and the LAN. So that the traffic can be distributed to computers within the LAN, you could connect the routers to switches or even hubs.
What Are Hubs?
Hubs are, in contrast with the above, the least intelligent of the devices. These serve as connection points for computers and other peripheral devices like printers etc. within a LAN. Hubs simply pass the traffic it receives along to computers that are connected to them.
What Are Switches?
Switches are not as intelligent as routers but more intelligent than hubs. Switches are the connection points for computers and other devices within your network. Switches are more effective at directing the traffic along. They record computer addresses into a table and when traffic comes through the switches, they read the destination addresses and send the traffic directly to the appropriate computers, rather than to all computers connected to the network.
Why Choose PMC Telecom
You may know why you should choose Netgear products, but you still be wondering what you should buy from PMC Telecom. There are important reasons why we have maintained our position as leaders within the telephony industry, our commitment to quality, and customer satisfaction. We are careful when selecting the items we sell on our site because we want our customers to be satisfied, so we only pick products we believe in and would use ourselves.
Netgear networking hardware is the perfect example. Netgear makes high-performance, but also user-friendly equipment that novices and experts alike can use.
Something for Everyone
Netgear and PMC Telecom share other things in common – we are both committed to providing products that are suitable for all levels of users. We know, as our customer base is a very diverse selection of individuals and businesses, that not everyone needs the same hardware or has the same budget to spend on said hardware.
That is why, at PMC Telecom, you will notice that we stock Netgear products at as low prices as £21.95 excluding VAT and as high as £895 excluding VAT. Obviously, the high ticket items are not for everyone and most home users will not get any real benefit from investing in those.
Likewise, businesses may want to avoid the smaller and cheaper models.
However, the bottom line is, that there is hardware like routers, switches, and hubs for all budgets.
