What is a characteristic of a hub?
- regenerates signals received on one port out all other ports
- operates at Layer 2
- uses CSMA/CA to avoid collisions
- subdivides the network into collision domains
Answers Explanation & Hints:
A hub is a Layer 1 device that regenerates signals out all ports other than the ingress port. All ports on a hub belong to the same collision domain. Hubs use CSMA/CD to detect collisions on the network.
