The use of switches in a corporate network cannot be ignored. These devices allow any equipment connected in the network to communicate, making collaboration among employees easier. But how do switches work? Switches have to be configured in every network. Usually, every device is assigned an IP address, but that is not necessary anymore. With the introduction of stacking technology, up to 4 switches can be connected using stack cables to act as one unit.
It is not debatable that you will need stacking later, even if it is not necessary now. As your business grows, many devices are connected to a network. Soon, there will be no more space on the current switch. That calls for a second switch, and the pattern continues until you have a rack full of switches. Connecting all these switches to a network is not only expensive but a pain-taking process. You will need a stacking cable to harness the power of stacking technology. Depending on the distance between your switches, you can choose options from 1-meter cables to 3-meter or 10-feet stacking cables.
The number one benefit is the reduced cost of networking in a corporate organization. Secondly, you won't have to complain about management. It becomes easy to remove or add any switch to the system without interrupting the entire network. Depending on the brand you have, you can add up to 9 devices in a stack by connecting them with a stack cable. And what more? You have full access to all ports of switches in a stack; not even a single port is blocked by STP.
