Network Hubs Buying Guide
A Hub, also known as a network or repeater hub, is a device used to connect multiple Ethernet cables together, which in turn allows them to act as one single network. This is not a device that is commonly used in residential settings. Most often, hubs are found in large offices with many computers and related devices running simultaneously.
In recent time, lower priced options such as network switches have taken over this niche. That being said, many people still use hubs especially in order setups or unique situations that require a particular type of application.
Despite the fact that network switches may be more cost effective, there are still many reasons to use a hub.
1. In some cases a group of computers will require that each unit receives all the traffic to the group. A hub does this automatically, whereas with a switch, you would need to go through additional steps.
2. With a hub, it is more difficult for an inexperienced user to take down the entire network. When using a switch, one mistake could lead to a loop which may result in a problem within the entire network.
More technically advanced users will be able to implement hubs in additional ways.
When purchasing a hub, ensure that you are aware of the features that each one offers. Although hubs may not be as popular as they were in the past, the features available are much the same.
On average, hubs feature four ports. This allows you to connect four devices to the same hub to create a network.
Additionally, make sure that the hub you purchase will be able to support the proper operating system. This is an error that many new users run into.
Finding an affordable hub should not be difficult. You can easily find what you are looking for at a variety of online stores. Most four port hubs will set you back approximately R500. If you are in the market for a more advanced hub with additional features, you may expect to expand your budget to R1000 or more.
If you have never purchased a hub or simply want to ensure the right decision, follow these three buying tips:1. Make sure you purchase the correct equipment. Be careful not to buy a network switch when what you really want is a hub.
2. Compare prices to ensure that you buy the hub with the right features at the right price. The cost of hubs is relatively low, so you should be able to purchase one, at a good deal.
3. Know the specifications of your network, as well as the hub, before you make a purchase. Do not buy a hub that will not offer your network the desired benefits.
