LAN Switching Quizzes & Trivia

A switch is a device in a computer network that connects other devices together. Multiple data cables are plugged into a switch to enable communication between different networked devices. In networking, there are essentials that are needed such as switches that are used to control the computers and limit network access. Take this quiz to understand the basics of switches.
