Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average lifespan of a network switch?

The average lifespan of a network switch, including refurbished models, typically ranges from 5 to 8 years, depending on usage and maintenance. Many vendors would like to push you into a quicker refresh cycle (to boost revenues), but in reality, many network switches can last 10-15 years, in terms of physical resilience, if not longer.

How often should I replace my network switch?

Consider replacing or upgrading your network switch every 5 years to keep up with technological advancements and ensure optimal network performance, but for common use cases, many users get bay with 7-10 years of switch usage. We encourage extending the life of your current assets with proper maintenance, environmental and parts availability from the refurbished market.

What is a Network Switch Used For?

A network switch is used to connect multiple devices on a computer network, facilitating communication and data sharing between them. It efficiently manages network traffic, ensuring smooth data transfer and connectivity within a network. You will find switches in corporate environments within network cabinets, racked in data centers or server rooms (rackmount network switches), mounted to the ceiling, or sometimes just sitting on a desk (desktop switches) or shelf.

What are the types of network switches?

Network switches come in various types, including managed, unmanaged, and smart switches.

Managed switches offer advanced control and customization, unmanaged switches are plug-and-play with no configuration, and smart switches provide a middle ground with some management features and easier setup.

Switches are also available in various form factors and sizes (1U, 2U, 4U, etc..), and functional uses such as rackmount or desktop. They may be consumer grade or, most commonly, for the enterprise.

What is the difference between a network switch and an Ethernet switch?

A network switch and an Ethernet switch essentially refer to the same device. Both are used to connect multiple network devices and manage data traffic. The term "Ethernet switch" specifically indicates the switch uses Ethernet protocols for networking.
