I am new to networking and not from Engineering domain. Sorry If I sound silly.
I came across an article on Network Switches and How they work. Diving deep into it, I found some interesting topics such as CSMA - CD/CA. I understood the basic idea behind it, but could not clear two doubts raised in my mind:
Say I have 3 Computers (Say A, B, C) connected through a switch.
Now, If I want to send data from B to A and also at the same time from A to C. Is it possible to transfer data in such a way simultaneously? Will it cause collision?
Will managed switches work differently than unmanaged switches in this case? Or is it irrelevant?
I have seen Cisco enterprise switches in my company, and asked the same questions to my engineering team and also to my network manager. Could not understand the terms they used back then. Now I have basic idea about the terms used in networking. But due to the unfortunate situations going on, I could not connect with them.
If my question is too vague or needs a long answer, please feel free to suggest related topics that I should find on the web.
