A center may be the simplest networking system that connects multiple computers or other network devices when talking about a community. Unlike a network change or modem, a community center shows all system information across each link and does not have any routing tables or intelligence on where you can deliver data. Many modems can identify simple system problems. Practically Hubs is a small box in rectangular shape which have multiple ports for connecting various devices to it.
It receives its power supply from auxiliary power sources. The main work of Hub is to receive incoming data signals, amplify them in the form of electrical signals and then send them to each connected device. A Hub may contain a number of ports.
Minimum amount of ports that a hub can have is 4 and it can have up to 24 ports for connecting various devices and peripherals to it. For example accidents, but having all data broadcast to multiple locations could be a safety threat and cause bottlenecks.
