Hi all,

The main differance between the a switch and Hub is the hub will disribute the data among the system.(For eg: a hub have 8 port and in each system is connected and if a a system send a data of 100 mbps then all the system will share the data among themself and by the end system 100/8 it will send or get around 12.5mbps.) but incase of switch is won't do such things instead it will send the data as the same amount as it sends from the source.
