Provides low latency because it avoids the routing of packets through multiple devices, resulting in faster network performance.
Simplified Network Design
Allows for a simplified network design by providing direct connectivity between devices, eliminating the need for complex routing and VLAN configurations.
Improved Network Visibility
Provides enhanced network visibility by enabling the use of tools such as port mirroring and packet capture to analyze network traffic and troubleshoot issues.
Easy Integration with Existing Infrastructure
Easily integrated with existing infrastructure, such as servers, storage devices, and switches, without requiring significant changes to the network.
Provides high bandwidth capabilities, enabling organizations to support high-bandwidth applications, such as video streaming and VoIP.
Can be used in conjunction with other security protocols, such as VLAN segregation and ACLs, to provide enhanced security and isolate critical traffic from the rest of the network.
