Do you have a lean IT staff? A cloud-managed switch can simplify your network management. You get a simple user interface, multisite full-stack management, and automatic updates delivered directly to the switch.
Go with an on-premise managed switch. It's also a good option if your compliance regulations bar
cloud applications, or if your network experts prefer customized device management.
Managed and unmanaged
Do you need tighter control of your network traffic? A managed switch gives you the ability to configure and monitor your LAN. If you want to connect multiple networks, you want a managed switch with Layer 2 or Layer 3 capabilities.
