Re: Function of Switch

switches can also seen as a good way to provide access port density. so end customers are, for examples linked up at 100Mb, then trunked to upper layers on a single high speed port or even more as ether-channel.

My friend, I recommend you buy a CCNA/Introduction to Cisco Networking book and read it.

All your questions will be answered there.
