Global Network Switches Market 2017-2021

About Network Switches

A network switch is a networking hardware device that links multiple computers together within a single local area network (LAN). Network switches work as a central connection in the communication network, where connected devices have a dedicated link with full operational bandwidth. A network switch works at layer-2 or data link layer of OSI model. However, there are certain switches that can process data at the network layer (layer-3). Such switches incorporate additional routing functionalities and are called layer-3 switches or multilayer switches.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global network switches market to decline at a CAGR of (2.64%) during the period 2017-2021.
