Installing the Switch 208/224
Sample Network Topologies
The switch, in turn, is connected to a network backbone through fiber-optic
cabling connected to a 100Base-FX transceiver installed in the switch. Now,
all the devices in this network can access other network resources that are
connected elsewhere on the network backbone.
As a Desktop Switch
Switch 224T is designed to be used as a desktop switch to which end nodes,
printers and other peripherals, and servers are directly connected. Although,
since it has the same large 8000 address table and high performance as the
Switch 208T, it also can be used as a segment switch. Or, you could, of course,
connect a combination of end nodes and hubs to the Switch 224T ports.
