  Computer networking device - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer networking devices are units that mediate data in a computer network.
Router: a specialized network device that determines the next network point to which to forward a data packet toward its destination.
Switch: a device that allocates traffic from one network segment to certain lines (intended destination(s)) which connect the segment to another network segment.

 Computer (Linux Reviews)
Originally, a "computer" (sometimes spelled "computor") was a person who performed numerical calculations under the direction of a mathematician, often with the aid of a variety of mechanical calculating devices from the abacus onward.
Computers have been used to control mechanical devices since they became small and cheap enough to do so; indeed, a major spur for integrated circuit technology was building a computer small enough to guide the Apollo missions and the Minuteman missile, two of the first major applications for embedded computers.
Computer operating systems and applications were modified to include the ability to define and access the resources of other computers on the network, such as peripheral devices, stored information, and the like, as extensions of the resources of an individual computer.

Distributed computing is the process of aggregating the power of several computing entities to collaboratively run a single computational task in a transparent and coherent way, so that they appear as a single, centralized system.
Distributed computing differs from cluster computing in that computers in a distributed computing environment are typically not exclusively running 'group' tasks, whereas clustered computers are usually much more tightly coupled.

LAN - A local area network (LAN) is a group of computers and associated devices that share a common communications line or wireless link and typically share the resources of a single processor or server within a small geographic area (for example, within an office building).
A local area network may serve as few as two or three users (for example, in a home network) or as many as thousands of users (for example, in an FDDI network).
Network Switch - A network switch is a computer networking device that connects network segments.

An apparatus as in claim 16 in which the diodes are arranged on a front panel of the network device in a plurality of columns of two diodes, and in which said two diodes of each column are actuated together and said columns are actuated sequentially during the configuration cycle.
Owing to the fact that these networking devices have many ports, large numbers of LEDS are usually grouped in a common area on the face panel of the device.
However, the use of separate computers or network stations may not be practical for field operations, or other circumstances where this external equipment is not readily available.

 Quality of service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the fields of packet-switched networks and computer networking, the traffic engineering term Quality of Service (QoS) refers to the probability of the telecommunication network meeting a given traffic contract, or in many cases is used informally to refer to the probability of a packet succeeding in passing between two points in the network.
Network equipment, that supports DiffServ and perhaps IntServ, are called multilayer network equipment.
Some people believe that this is because a "dumb" network that offers sufficient bandwidth for most applications, most of the time, is already economically stable, with little incentive to deploy non-standard stateful QoS-based applications.

Each of these devices fulfills a specific role in a network; however, only the largest and most complex environments use all of them.
Because coaxial networks have now fallen out of favor, and because the functionality of repeaters has been built in to other devices, such as hubs and switches, repeaters are rarely used.

The sharing of equipment and operations costs across both data and voice users can also improve network efficiency since excess bandwidth on one network can be used by the other, thereby creating economies of scale for voice (especially given the rapid growth in data traffic).
Since people are the most significant cost elements in a network, any opportunity to combine operations, to eliminate points of failure, and to consolidate accounting systems would be beneficial.
Although the use of voice over packet networks is relatively limited at present, there is considerable user interest and trials are beginning.
