Computer Networking Hardware

Computer Networking Hardware is defined as a set of physical or network devices that are essential for interaction and communication between hardware units operational on a computer network.

Networking Cable, Connetors and Ports

A network cable is a type of telecommunications wiring that transmits data from individual computers to a large network.

Twisted Pair (Coper)
Coaxial Cable (Coper)
Optical Cable (Optical)
RJ-45 Male Connector
BNC Connector
Optical Connector
RJ-45 Female Port
BNC Port
Optical Cable Port

Networking Tools and Accessories

A crimp tool is a device used to join two pieces of metal together by twisting one or both pieces to hold the other. An example of crimping is affixing a connector to the end of a cable.

Basic Communication Devices


4G MoDem Router

Basic Networking Devices


Simply a multi-port repeater. Used to connect multiple devices to the same network drop.


Switches work the same way as hubs, but they can identify the intended destination of the information that they receive, so they send that information to only the computers that are supposed to receive it.


Bridges are a way of segmenting traffic between the two Ethernet segments.


A repeater is a network device used to regenerate analog or digital signals that are distorted by transmission loss due to attenuation

Cable Converter

Transmitter and Receiver of electronic signals—specialized repeater. Connects different media technologies.

Combinational NIC

Routing and Switching Devices

A layer 2 switch is a type of network switch or device that works on the data link layer (ISO OSI Layer 2) and utilizes MAC Address to determine the path through where the frames are to be forwarded.

Layer 2 Switch

A network device that forwards traffic based on layer 3 (OSI Model) information at very high speeds.

Layer 3 Switch

A ROUTER is a connection device that transmits packets of data between various computer networks.


A Gateway is a network node that forms a passage between two networks operating with different transmission protocols. The most common type of gateways, the network gateway operates at layer 3, i.e. network layer of the OSI (open systems interconnection) model. 


Wireless Networking Devices

Wireless Switch
Access Point
Wireless SOHO Router

Nework Security Devices

A Firewall is a network security device, either hardware or software-based, which monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic and based on a defined set of security rules it accepts, rejects or drops that specific traffic.

Signal Jammer

A Jammer is a mobile communications device that transmits on the same frequency range as a cellphone to create strong cell tower interference and block cellphone signals and call transmission.

Networking Computing Devices

A Workstation is a computer intended for individual use that is faster and more capable than a personal computer. 

Workstation PC
Server PC
Server PC

Network servers are powerful computers used as a central repository of data and a variety of programs shared by network users.
