Routers & Switches

Routers and switches are both computer networking devices that allow one or more computers to be connected to other computers, networked devices, or to other networks. The functions of a router, switch and hub and are all different, even if at times they are integrated into a single device.

Access Points & Wireless Senders

A wireless Access Point (AP) is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a wired network using Wi-Fi. The Access Point usually connects to a router via a wired network as a separate device but it can also be an integral part of the router itself. An Access Point is different from a hotspot because a hotspot is the physical space where the wireless service is provided. An Outdoor Wireless Access Point generally connects directly to a wired Ethernet connection and then the Access Point provides wireless connections to other devices using radio frequency links.
