#network #multiple #switch #big #switch

The left-hand topology has slightly higher latencies, in the range of microseconds – usually not noticeable. However, the server could serve multiple clients with up to 2.5 Gbit/s in total.

The right-hand topology has slightly lower latency but the server can only deliver or receive 1 Gbit/s in total.
