U n i t 3 P r o j e c t | 3 Part II: Create a chart to compare and contrast hubs, switches, routers, and bridges DEVICE DESCRIPTION FUNCTION REQUIREMENTS TO SET UP REQUIREMENTS TO MAINTAIN HUB An electronic device that connects many computers together to form a single computer network. Hubs classify as Layer 1 devices in the OSI model. Three different types: passive hubs, active hubs and intelligent hubs. Passive ethernet hubs don't boost signals passed through them and, as a result, have no need of an external power source. Active hubs actually boost signals carried through them, allowing connections to be achieved over longer distances but requiring a power source to do so. Intelligent hubs boost signals as active hubs do, but also offer error detection for the data packets that they transfer, which prevents some of the data corruption that can occur within the hub. An ethernet hub allows multiple computers to access a computer network from a single point. Instead of each computer requiring its own Ethernet access to a network router, the hub becomes a go-between where computers can plug in without accessing the router directly. The hub also creates a sub-branch of

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
