Definition Edit

In packet networking, a multiport repeater is the simplest multiport active device in use. It has multiple input/output (I/O) ports, in which a signal introduced at the input of any port appears at the output of every port except (usually) the original incoming.

Overview Edit

With multiple computers, the network slows, due to packet collisions. Lower prices of network switches have made multiport repeaters rare.
