Which is a type of hub that forwards packets to an appropriate port based on the packets address?


Short for port-switching hub, a special type of hub that
forwards packets to the appropriate port based on the
packet's address. Conventional hubs simply rebroadcast
every packet to every port. Since switching hubs forward
each packet only to the required port, they provide much
better performance. Most switching hubs also support load
balancing, so that ports are dynamically reassigned to
different LAN segments based on traffic patterns.
Some newer switching hubs support both traditional Ethernet
(10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) ports. This enables
the administrator to establish a dedicated, Fast Ethernet
channel for high-traffic devices such as servers.
