Shared Hubs (8650)

  Shared Hubs

In a shared network environment, servers are connected to hubs. A repeater is built into each port of the hub. All ports of the repeater hub share a fixed amount of bandwidth, or data capacity. A 100 Mbps shared hub means that all nodes on the hub must share the 100 Mbps or bandwidth. As stations are added to the hub, the effective bandwidth available to any individual station becomes smaller.

All nodes must operate at the same speed, either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. Fast Ethernet repeaters provide 100 Mbps of available bandwidth, ten times more than what is available with a 10 BASE-T repeater.

Repeaters use a well-established, uncomplicated design, making them highly cost-effective for connecting workstations in a workgroup.
