The IP address plays the basic role for the transmission of sender-receiver information. For example, if your computer sends data to your router in advance, with the IP header, marks the IP from which the data comes, with which the recipient receives them in this case.

When the devices that act as sender and receiver agree, they intertwine in the same network, whether public or private.

The public address is set by the internet network provider, this network appears the moment you reboot the router, mostly this network is dynamic because when it restarts automatically, the internet connection appears on your computer, in addition to other computers. a single network provider. Instead, you can configure a fixed or static IP on a computer from the Router.



On the other hand, the private address is fixed on each computer individually, that is, one computer does not depend on the other to connect.

These addresses consist of four blocks of numbers starting from 0 to 255 and are distinguished by being separated by a period, each of them has a length of 32 bits composed of two groups, one for the network and the other for the host.

There are also dynamic and static addresses, the dynamic ones to connect in the normal way on the Internet that allow you to constantly change your address, unlike the static one that does not change, it is fixed in your connected equipment.

Static steering is faster and more stable, plus you can monitor and control its use by external parties. These addresses can be configured by a router, server or swich. It is also possible to hide your IP address in Google Chrome

What is a switch?



Uno switch is a mechanism which allows you to interconnect a local area network (LAN) determined by Ethernet or what is known as IEEE 802.3. A switch has the purpose of hooking up devices on the network but with the router connection.

These switches realize the interconnection through the wiring system, as this mechanism is one of the most stable and able to meet your needs.

The switch has the following characteristics: It has ports that can be   modular GBICs and SFPs, speed and a Power Over Ethernet.

On the market there are various types of switches with numerous ports and with cutting-edge presentations, such as Smart Switch, Industrial Switch, Unmanaged Switch, Enterprise Switch, Desktop, medium and high performance trunk, manageable and unmanageable perimeter.
