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.

I have used ADS for three separate tasks across my split estate to help upgrade the Wifi system in place and provide commercial level connectivity within these. From the initial outset I was very impressed with their customer engagement, which progressed into site visits from Steve. He quickly ascertained our needs, and complicated they were, and produced very competitive quotes. The actual work was completed to a very high standard and to the expected requirements. I would commend them to any person or business looking to improve their connectivity, no matter what they may look like.
