Switched Networks
Author: Cássio Lima Last Updated: January 23, 2007

1. What is the main difference between switched networks over conventional networks?

On switched networks a datapath between the sender and the receiver is established before the sender starts sending data, while this doesn’t happen on conventional networks.
Switched networks only use reliable protocols, while conventional networks only use non-reliable protocols.
Contrary to conventional networks, switched networks do not allow the use of TCP/IP protocol.
Switched networks use 128-bit MAC addresses while conventional networks use 48-bit MAC addresses.
None of the above.
