Each workstation or network device on the network has its own dedicated segment - also known as a Collision Domain - to a switch. Each device gets the segments full bandwidth and does not have to share the dedicated segment with other devices. Collisions are reduced because each segment is its own Collision Domain.
Important: Full-duplex transmission is achieved by microsegmentation. Each device can send and receive at the same time which doubles the amount of bandwidth between nodes.
What are the three switching methods in Cisco Catalyst switches?
The three frame operating modes to handle frame switching are
Store-and-forward
Cut-through
Fragment-free
