Technology Roundup: Switches

Ready to get connected? These resources can help you choose the right switch for your network

Whether you’re building a network from scratch for your new small business or you’re looking to expand your network to accommodate a growing business, finding the right switch is key.

Without them, you couldn’t connect your employees to the resources they need to do their jobs, like servers, printers, laptops, and storage devices.

With types like managed, unmanaged, smart, and stackable, it can be hard to know which switch to choose. Everything from how many to which kinds of devices you plan to connect will impact your decision. In this second installment of our Technology Roundup series, we offer some help in understanding the differences and determining which switches are right for your small business.
