A network switch is a computer networking device that connects devices together on a computer network by using packet switching to receive, process and forward data to the destination device.
Switches are different to routers. Switches create a network and routers connect networks. The two pieces of equipment look similar and perform some similar functions, but each has its own distinct function to perform on a network.
Most business networks today use switches to connect computers, printers, phones, cameras, lights, and servers in a building or buildings.
A switch serves as a controller, enabling networked devices to talk to each other efficiently. Through information sharing and resource allocation, switches save businesses money and increase employee productivity.

After two other people let us down on a TV wall install I called ADS after finding them online, they are a well-organised company and very professional.
Mike and Dave Mc came out, assessed what needed to be done and arranged a day and time to suit me, they were helpful, experienced, polite and on time. They did a fantastic job of the install, extremely neat finish and even hoovered up after themselves! Both myself and my Husband are really pleased with the job they’ve done and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
Thanks again, guys!
