What can we do on a switch?

Is there a link that can explain all technology that can be implemented on a switch ?

Best regards

Only thing close to it that I'm aware of is the Product Advisory located at:


After you finish with a couple of initial requirements, you can check all or some of the switches and hit on "Compare" that will give you a list of "features" you may use as a checklist.

Hope it helps...

Thank you,

If I want to do the High Level Design, then I have to do a site survey.

So I will ask the customer about their need.

And I won't ask them with a technical language (VLAN,STP,COS...) but with a comprehensible language.

Is there a checklist somewhere about switching.

With this checklist I will be able to determine the exact technology that I will implement for them.

Best Regards
