Gigabit Network upgrade


Our office currently has a 10/100 48 port switch that has 2 gigabit ports. Currently the Gigabit ports are unused, would it be a good idea/ improve performance on the network if our 2 servers were connnected to the gigabit ports instead of the 10/100 ports? let me know if you would like more info

Thanks for your help.

  1. It depends on the utilization of the current ports. If you are only using less than half say 50m it will make no difference. If you have high utilization say 80-90m then it may help a bit because you will get some tiny amount of packet loss.

    In general I would suspect you will see little improvement unless you are experiencing problems already.
  2. Just as bill001g stated, I wouldn't expect much of an improvement, if any.
  3. brilliant, thanks for that.
