Fiber Switch

Fiber Optic Switch

A fiber switch is a telecommunication device that receives a message from any device connected to it and then transmits the message only to the device for which the message was meant. This makes the fiber optic switch a more intelligent device than a hub (which receives a message and then transmits it to all the other devices on its network). The fiber Ethernet switch plays an integral part in most modern Ethernet local area networks (LANs). Mid-to-large sized LANs contain a number of linked managed switches.

Small office/home office (SOHO) applications typically use a single fiber switch, or an all-purpose converged device such as a residential gateway to access small office/home broadband services such as DSL or cable Internet. In most of these cases, the end-user device contains a router and components that interface to the particular physical broadband technology. User devices may also include a telephone interface for VoIP.

If you’re looking for a fiber switch, a fiber Ethernet switch or fiber optic switch, Primus Cable offers a superior selection. Our fiber switch products are divided into two main categories:
  • L2 Managed Switches
  • Web Smart Switches

A fiber Ethernet switch operates at the data link layer of the OSI model to create a separate collision domain for each switch port. With 4 computers (e.g., A, B, C, and D) on 4 switch ports, any pair (e.g. A and B) can transfer data back and forth while the other pair (e.g. C and D) also do so simultaneously, and the two conversations will not interfere with one another. In full duplex mode, these pairs can also overlap (e.g. A transmits to B, simultaneously B to C, and so on). In the case of a repeater hub, they would all share the bandwidth and run in half duplex, resulting in collisions, which would then necessitate retransmissions.

If you have any questions, we’re here to help. Primus Cable’s friendly customer service team can be reached at 951-824-1571. We have nearly 20 years’ experience supplying network gear, cables, and many individual fiber optic switches. Thank you for considering Primus Cable as your #1 provider of fiber switches.
