Hubs, seriously?

Hi folks! So in this day and age gigabit is considered pretty normal. Gigabit switches are cheap and 100 Mb switches are considered old news.

So it’s funny when people run across old environments with 10 Mb hubs kicking around. Now that’s ancient! It’s amazing to see that people will spend a ton of money on that big screen tv in the front reception area of their business but will not shell out a few dollars to upgrade their network.

As a network guy I find this hilarious and scary all at the same time. After all, if they won’t upgrade their networks, what level of security do they have for their data?

Business owners should understand that IT security is extremely important these days when we all use computers in some shape or form.
