The assistant port, as well as control center ports, are utilized for switch the board. Switches additionally have ports for LAN and WAN availability. The LAN interfaces normally incorporate Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Giga Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), and Token Ring. Following is the detail of a wide range of connection points of Cisco switches.


Ethernet is ordinarily IEEE 802.3 standard based actual point of interaction of the switch. The working rate of the port is 10 Mbps. The media standard for this point of interaction is 10BaseT.

Quick Ethernet

The Fast Ethernet likewise is known is the FE interface. It is IEEE 802.3u standard based actual point of interaction. The working pace of Fast Ethernet is 100 Mbps. The media standard utilized for Fast Ethernet connection point is 100BaseT.

Gigabit Ethernet

Gigabit Ethernet is otherwise called GE interface. This ports standard is Ethernet IEEE 802.3ab. Gigabit Ethernet can associate at the momentous speed of 1000mb/s. The media standard utilized is1000BASE-T

Sequential points of interaction

A sequential point of interaction is a correspondence interface between two computerized frameworks that communicate information as a progression of voltage beats down a wire. Sequential points of interaction normally utilized for WAN associations from ISP to have. the sequential point of interaction gives availability types like Frame Relay, T1, T3, and so on


Fiber Distributed Data Interface is a bunch of ANSI and ISO guidelines for information transmission on fiber optic lines in a neighborhood (LAN). The scope of FDDI can reach out in range up to 200 km. FDDI networks work at 100 Mbps speed and utilize a token-passing system to forestall crashes.

Token Ring

A symbolic ring network is a neighborhood (LAN) in which all PCs associated in a ring or star geography and pass at least one intelligent tokens from one host to another. Just a host that holds a token can send information, and tokens delivered when receipt of the information affirmed. Token Ring points of interaction can work at either 4 Mbps or 16 Mbps. Token Ring networks missing from systems administration industry long way back. New Cisco switches don’t have a Token Ring connection point.

Loopback interface

A loopback connection point is a sensible, virtual connection point in a Cisco Router. This is certifiably not an actual connection point like Fast Ethernet point of interaction or Gigabit Ethernet interface. A loopback interface has significant utilizations, for instance, as an OSPF Router ID.

Invalid Interface

An invalid connection point is a virtual connection point that disposes of IP parcels. It is to forestall steering circles from happening in the organization. We don’t dole out the IP address to an invalid connection point.
