The Difference Between Industrial Exchange And General Exchange
What is the difference between an industrial grade switch and an ordinary one? In fact, in terms of performance, there is no significant difference between industrial switches and ordinary switches. At the network level, there are layer 2 switches and of course layer 3 switches. The industrial Ethernet switch is concerned about its product design and the selection of components. It is designed to meet the needs of industrial field use. It can still work normally under the conditions of machinery, climate, electromagnetism and so on, so, It can be widely used in industrial production scenes with poor conditions.
As the main connection equipment of LAN, switch becomes one of the most popular network equipments. With the development of switching technology, the price of switch drops sharply, and the popularity of switch increases further.
If you have a large number of users, busy applications, and a variety of servers on your Ethernet network, and you haven't made any changes to the network structure, the performance of the entire network may be very low. One solution is to add a 100 Mbps / 1000 Mbps switch to Ethernet.
If the network utilization is over 40 and the collision rate is greater than 10, the switch can help you solve a problem. Switches with 100 Mbps fast Ethernet can run in full duplex mode and can set up dedicated 200 Mbps connections.
Industrial grade switch is a kind of Ethernet switch equipment which is specially applied in industrial control field. The reliability requirement is very high and it needs 24 hours uninterrupted operation for a long time. Some automatic control applications require low forwarding delay, and some require redundant power supply, such as DC24V power supply. General switches are generally referred to as Ethernet switches, commercial (Ethernet) switches, home (Ethernet) switches. Commercial switch is generally used in the enterprise office network and other occasions, the general form is machine frame, installed in the enterprise computer room, usually requires high reliability, can 24 hours uninterrupted long-term operation, the bandwidth is large, the interface is more and so on.
Not only the functions of switches in different network environments are different, but the effects of adding new switches and increasing the switching ports of existing switches to the same network environment are also different. To fully understand and master the network traffic mode is a very important factor to play the role of switch. Because the purpose of using the switch is to minimize and filter data traffic in the network, if a switch in the network is improperly installed, it needs to forward almost all the data packets received. Switch can not play its role of optimizing network performance. Instead, it reduces the transmission speed of data and increases network delay.
