3 LAN and LAN DevicesLANs make it possible for businesses that use computer technology to efficiently share such items as files and printers and to make possible communications such as .LANs are designed to do the following:operate within a limited geographic area or buildingallow many users to access high-bandwidth mediaprovide full time connectivity to local servicesconnect physically adjacent devices
4 The Beginning of LAN Design Initial idea: shared media LANBus structure; CSMA/CD was access methodCoax cable; transmission rate up to 10 Mbit/s, half-duplex
6 RepeaterThe purpose of a repeater is to amplify and retime network signals at the bit level.Repeaters can be single-port "in" and single-port "out" devices, though more often now, they are stackable (modular), or multi-port repeaters, better known as hubs.Repeaters are classified as layer 1 devices, in the OSI model, because they act only on the bit level and look at no other information.
7 Hub Used in 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T networks Is equivalent to a multi-port repeaterHubs come in three basic types:passive – no traffic and signal manipulation, used only to share the mediaactive – amplifies the incoming signalintelligent – (smart hub) same function as an active hub, additionally includes a controller chip and diagnostic capabilities
9 BridgeThe purpose of a bridge is to filter traffic on a LAN, to keep local traffic local, yet allows connectivity to other parts (segments) of the LAN for traffic that has been directed there.The bridge makes its decisions based on MAC addresses.The bridge is a layer 2 device.

17 Segmentation with Bridges Bridges split a LAN into several workgroups with smaller collision domains -> reduces whole LAN trafficOne "broadcast domain"half-duplex collision domains
18 SwitchThe purpose of a switch is to concentrate connectivity, while guaranteeing bandwidth.It switches packets from incoming ports (interfaces) to outgoing ports, while providing each port with full bandwidth.The switch uses the MAC address to make its switching decisions. You might think of each port on a switch as a micro-bridge, which makes it a layer 2 device.

27 RouterThe purpose of a router is to examine incoming packets, choose the best path for them through the network, and then switch them to the proper port.Routers make their path selection decisions based on layer 3 information - the network addresses therefore they are considered layer 3 devices.Routers can connect different layer 2 tech-nologies, such as Ethernet, Token-ring, or FDDI.
