  • How Useful Is a Layer 3 Switch for Network Routing? #used #network #switch

    Here’s Why Your Network Might Need a Layer 3 Switch

    Updated June 09, 2017

    Traditional network switches operate at Layer 2 of the OSI model while network routers operate at Layer 3. This often leads to confusion over the definition and purpose of a Layer 3 switch (also called a multilayer switch).

    A Layer 3 switch is a specialized hardware device used in network routing. Layer 3 switches technically have a lot in common with traditional routers, and not just in physical appearance.

    Both can support the same routing protocols. inspect incoming packets and make dynamic routing decisions based on the source and destination addresses inside.

    One of the main advantages of a Layer 3 switch over a router is in the way routing decisions are performed. Layer 3 switches are less likely to experience network latency since packets don t have to make additional steps through a router.

    Purpose of Layer 3 Switches

    Layer 3 switches were conceived as a technology to improve network routing performance on large local area networks (LANs) like corporate intranets .

    The key difference between Layer 3 switches and routers lies in the hardware internals. The hardware inside a Layer 3 switch blends that of traditional switches and routers, replacing some of a router s software logic with integrated circuit hardware to offer better performance for local networks.

    Additionally, having been designed for use on intranets, a Layer 3 switch will typically not possess the WAN ports and wide area network features a traditional router will always have.

    These switches are most commonly used to support routing between virtual LANs (VLANs). Benefits of Layer 3 switches for VLANs include:

    • Reduction in the amount of broadcast traffic
    • Simplified security management
    • Improved fault isolation

    How Layer 3 Switches Work

    A traditional switch dynamically routes traffic between its individual physical ports according to the physical addresses (MAC addresses ) of connected devices.

    Layer 3 switches use this capability when managing traffic within a LAN.

    They also expand on this by utilizing IP address information to make routing decisions when managing traffic between LANs. In contrast, Layer 4 switches also utilize TCP or UDP port numbers .

    Using a Layer 3 Switch With VLANs

    Each virtual LAN must be entered and port-mapped on the switch. Routing parameters for each VLAN interface must also be specified.

    Some Layer 3 switches implement DHCP support that can be used to automatically assign IP addresses to devices within a VLAN. Alternatively, an outside DHCP server can be used, or static IP addresses configured separately.

    Issues With Layer 3 Switches

    Layer 3 switches cost more than traditional switches but less than traditional routers. Configuring and administering these switches and VLANs also require additional effort.

    The applications of Layer 3 switches are limited to intranet environments with a sufficiently large scale of device subnets and traffic. Home networks usually have no use for these devices. Lacking WAN functionality, Layer 3 switches are not a replacement for routers.

    The naming of these switches comes from concepts in the OSI model, where layer 3 is known as the Network Layer.

    Unfortunately, this theoretical model doesn t do well distinguishing the practical differences between industry products. The naming has caused much confusion in the marketplace.

    ALT.com

    Bait and switch!

    Alt.com standard (free) members are constantly encouraged to update their membership by taking out a subscription. If you click on a members picture or name you are taken to an upgrade page with the members thumbnail, handle age and area. However they have now changed this page so it no longer includes previously displayed information that told you when last that member signed into their account.

    The have deliberately withheld this information now so potential customers are unaware that an account may be inactive until after they pay for a subscription to contact that person. As Alt and other various.inc sites are full of inactive accounts this is poor business practice and I suggest anyone caught by it demand an immediate and full refund.

    Bait and Switch.

    Ever time a Standard (free) member signs in to Alt and other Various.inc dating sites they are offered the opportunity to purchase Gold or Silver membership subscription packages. I particular they tell customers that Gold will allow them to; Be the FIRST to contact new members, and they tell silver they can; Contact new members. In actual fact they can only contact new members who have also taken out a subscription. They fail to mention that new standard (free) members who form the vast majority are unable to view contacts made to them within their first 50 days of membership. As standard members mails are only held on record 30 days any lost sent is lost before it can be read.

    On contacting customer support about this I was advised that they would be able to read and reply to my contact if I purchased Standard contacts (a service only described as allowing standard members to read your profile and INITIATE contact). So they ask you to pay to contact new members yet when you do so they then tell you need to pay for an extra service to enable these new members to actually see the contact. Nowhere in the advertising or in the help pages of the site is this explained, this is all kept from the prospective customer until they have their money.

    This is Bait and Switch.

    Alt.com is part of the FFN network. I’ve had significant issues with this company for many years. Rather than detail all of the issues, I thought I’d share with you some advice on how to deal with complaints. Firstly some facts.
    1) There is no customer service. I have 15 years worth of emails logged that proves this. Your complaint will never be addressed through their stated process.
    2) Staff are shared resources across many online businesses. It;s a very low cost business and their a no KPIs for staff that are geared towards Customer service.
    3) The culture cannot be changed, The lack of customer service stems from middle to senior execs in the company that have been with the company for so long, that they don’t know any other way and are blinded to any cultural change.
    4) They will never call you. Ever. I’ve beem trying to get them to call me for 15 years to address my concerns.
    Here are some pointers to influence FFN to resolve your issues.
    1)LOG everything. Only use Email so you have an Audit trail. Do not use the online webform means of contacting them.
    2) If your issue involves unauthorised recurring charges, and ALT.COM are not listening, email your bank or financial institution and have the charges reversed. If you choose to call your bank, make sure you record the call, Emailing is better as you have an Audit trail. This was a major issues for me for years. Your bank will always reverse it.
    Advise Alt.com of your actions, and ask them to confirm that the issue is over, and that you can continue using your payment method as you require. They have a culture of banning people who reverse payments that have been fraudulent from ALT.Com. Once again this is a cultural issue of FFN never admitting any liability, or billing error.
    If your still not having your issue addressed, my advice is as follows.
    A) Find the top 3 institutional shareholders of FFN and email them with a text file of your correspondence. If you word your email politely, and your FFN emails confirm a lack of customer service, then the shareholder will move quickly to contact ffn. Any good investor will always be on the paying customers side.
    B) Update your profile on Alt.com requesting everyone to send a message to ffn to resolve your issue.
    C) Send a message to each FFN director and senior executive via Facebook or Linkedin asking them to adress your issue.

    Hope this helps

    As many of you know alt.com is an affiliate of the ffn network. There’s another major problem that I feel someone should address because it seems to me its illegal at best. I found that ffn is creating fake acct profiles of women to attract new members. I know this because I live in a very small town. The women that they say were members in my town I know for a fact don’t exist because believe me if some of these women really lived in my town I would have said forget the website and introduced myself in person.
    These websites need to be held accountable for their actions since they are making tons of money taken from hard working people who deserve to get what they paid for. This is America isn’t it?

    29th of Jul, 2013 by W1A

    I was urged to renew my Gold membership before it expired. The maximum renewal period available was 6 months. As soon as my membership lapsed, I was offered an 18 month renewal at only a slightly higher cost!

    And the very day my sub expired, I received THREE “emails” from members expressing interest in me – all sent within 15 minutes! What an extraordinary coincidence. In the UK, this is called fraud.

    29th of Jul, 2013 by Dazd

    Oh there relentless. I cancelled my membership and turned all my email settings to off and Im still getting sent offers to renew my membership. As if. Plus I now know some of their ads are fake. That site really needs to be looked at hars by the FCC. Its a shame too because it did used to be a fun site and they screwed it all up..

    Alt .com is the same company as FriendsFinder. com and it is the same management team that is reposnible for the misleading and fraudulent marketing practices. In particular they claim that you can use search function to search for matching people.
    Here is how their search works. You tell it you want people in radius of 20 miles. So you expect few people. What you get is you get people from 400 miles away so they can fluff up their results. Frequenty the people who are supposed to be from neighboring cities are from out of state and occasionally Canada and Mexico. Some of the profile look like they are generad by writers. For 4 weeks I am talking with Margie Lyn P. and the stupid person is telling me to remove cookies (which I have done just so I can continue my argument) which of course does nothing for fixing their search function. So if their search function does not work on something this simple you can imagine how useless that is. Here are some phone numbers you can try to tell them what you think: all are 408 and they are in Sunnyvale 745 5400, 470 3930, 543 0024, 702 1040. Unfortunately, the ods are you will get an idiot on the phone who will tell you to remove cookies.

    As soon as I signed up on ALT.COM I started to get loads of spam sent to the unique address I gave them.

    Odds Favor White Men, Asian Women On Dating App

    The numbers in this chart from Quartz show the percentage of people who responded to a “yes” on the “Are You Interested” app. Data: AYI.

    • Women get three times the interactions men do.
    • All men seemed to be more interested in people outside their race.
    • Black men and women get the lowest response rates to their messages.
    • All women except black women are most drawn to white men, and men of all races (with one notable exception) prefer Asian women.

    The business site Quartz graphed these preferences using data on the percentage of “yes” responses to the “Are you interested?” question on the app. The data suggest some uncomfortable stories about racial preferences in online dating.

    Back in 2009, the folks over at OKCupid culled through the site’s data and similarly found that race played a big role in who would respond to messages, with some similar (and a few different) findings.

    Some quick facts from the OKCupid data:

    • Black women respond the most.
    • White men get more replies from almost every group.
    • White women prefer white men; Asian and Latina women prefer them “even more exclusively.”

    We have a conversation about the data, below, and invite you to join in too. (And if you’re, um, interested in this topic, don’t miss this recent conversation about it hosted by Michel Martin of NPR’s Tell Me More. )

    Kat Chow: What’s remarkable to me is that, according to that study, most men respond to Asian women — except Asian men. For a while now, we’ve heard of the (popularized? stereotyped?) plight of Asian men lamenting about how Asian women mostly date white guys, with videos like Wong Fu’s “Yellow Fever. ” That stuff’s not new. But why haven’t we heard more about the dating preferences of Asian men?

    Article continues after sponsorship

    Here’s the bit from Quartz that’s been fodder for some discussion:

    “Unfortunately the data reveal winners and losers. All men except Asians preferred Asian women, while all except black women preferred white men.”

    And in case any of y’all missed it, Fusion had this hilarious interview with “Are You Interested” creator Josh Fischer and comedian Kristina Wong on Alicia Menendez Tonight .

    Elise Hu: So one of my reactions to the disproportionate popularity of Asian women is, I don’t see troves of men flocking to Asian women in the offline world. I wonder to what extent there’s something about finding Asian women attractive online but not in “real life.” Is this a preference revealed by online dating, or changed in some way by it? How would, say, the “mask” of screens affect our preferences?

    Kat: Maybe. Maybe the “mask” of screens empowers/emboldens users to pursue the type of people they might not encounter in real life. But to your point about not seeing troves of men flocking to Asian women: I dunno, I feel like I see a strong “preference” for Asian women in real life. (I put “preference” in quotes, because I think there’s a very fine line that teeters between preferences and fetishization, but that could be a whole other conversation.)

    Elise: I actually do think there must be some of the Asian fetishization, er, “yellow fever” at play here. This just really gets in my craw, because it becomes a problem for the Asian women — Am I just loved because I’m part of an ethnic group that’s assumed to be subservient, or do I have actual value as an individual, or is it both? — and it’s a problem for men who love them — Is my husband only with me ’cause he’s a creepster who makes certain assumptions about me and my race, or can he legitimately be attracted to me as an individual? The results of this study only perpetuate social problems for both sexes involved.

    On the flip side, it’s glaring how much everybody prefers white guys and doesn’t respond to black men and women. And white men never have to question whether they’re attractive to others because of a fetish, that’s for sure.

    Kat: Dating as an Asian woman is sort of like this:

    So another study about online dating — and how people self-segregate on the interwebs — started floating around this month .

    Kevin Lewis, a researcher at the University of California, San Diego, looked at more than 125,000 new OKCupid users in a 2-1/2-month period. He saw that most people didn’t reach out to potential suitors who were outside their race or ethnicity, and if they did, they were less likely to get a response. But the researcher noticed that people who were contacted by someone of a different race on OKCupid were more likely to initiate contact or interact with someone of that race later on.

    Elise: So where does that leave us, now? The connective tissue appears to be that race definitely matters when it comes to online dating. And that general idea is not necessarily something to get our backs up about, since even studies on babies indicate we might be wired to prefer our “in groups” to whatever we perceive as “out groups.” (A Yale study of babies showed the infants that prefer Cheerios over graham crackers favored their fellow Cheerios-lovers and were not as nice to graham cracker fans.)

    But the question that I’d like to see people get at is the difference between the online and offline worlds when it comes to these preferences. Or: differences between the preferences this app’s users and other online dating communities. Maybe this is an app just for weirdos who love Asian chicks and don’t love black women? I am annoyed for the black women who seem to be clearly getting discriminated against by these online picture-scanners.

    And speaking from an Asian woman point of view, I found my time in the analog dating world to be one in which men clearly favored white women or Latinas. I am really skeptical about the odds being ever in my favor, to borrow a Hunger Games line.

    Kat: I think with all these new apps rolling in, we’re going to learn more about relationships and preferences. I’m just looking to get my hands on a study that delves deeply into racial preferences — so if anybody knows of one, holler at me!

    Elise: Yep, if this little exploration leads me to any conclusion, it’s a skepticism of data from one particular dating app, since these are going to vary community by community, and I’d like to see a lot more aggregate data before getting too uncomfortable about the results. It could be that the Are You Interested dating community is just a weirdly skewed world, and now we’re extrapolating all this meaning into it. To be continued.

For 4 weeks I am talking with Margie Lyn P. and the stupid person is telling me to remove cookies (which I have done just so I can continue my argument) which of course does nothing for fixing their search function. So if their search function does not work on something this simple you can imagine how useless that is. Here are some phone numbers you can try to tell them what you think: all are 408 and they are in Sunnyvale 745 5400, 470 3930, 543 0024, 702 1040. Unfortunately, the ods are you will get an idiot on the phone who will tell you to remove cookies.

    As soon as I signed up on ALT.COM I started to get loads of spam sent to the unique address I gave them.

    Odds Favor White Men, Asian Women On Dating App

    The numbers in this chart from Quartz show the percentage of people who responded to a “yes” on the “Are You Interested” app. Data: AYI.

    • Women get three times the interactions men do.
    • All men seemed to be more interested in people outside their race.
    • Black men and women get the lowest response rates to their messages.
    • All women except black women are most drawn to white men, and men of all races (with one notable exception) prefer Asian women.

    The business site Quartz graphed these preferences using data on the percentage of “yes” responses to the “Are you interested?” question on the app. The data suggest some uncomfortable stories about racial preferences in online dating.

    Back in 2009, the folks over at OKCupid culled through the site’s data and similarly found that race played a big role in who would respond to messages, with some similar (and a few different) findings.

    Some quick facts from the OKCupid data:

    • Black women respond the most.
    • White men get more replies from almost every group.
    • White women prefer white men; Asian and Latina women prefer them “even more exclusively.”

    We have a conversation about the data, below, and invite you to join in too. (And if you’re, um, interested in this topic, don’t miss this recent conversation about it hosted by Michel Martin of NPR’s Tell Me More. )

    Kat Chow: What’s remarkable to me is that, according to that study, most men respond to Asian women — except Asian men. For a while now, we’ve heard of the (popularized? stereotyped?) plight of Asian men lamenting about how Asian women mostly date white guys, with videos like Wong Fu’s “Yellow Fever. ” That stuff’s not new. But why haven’t we heard more about the dating preferences of Asian men?

    Article continues after sponsorship

    Here’s the bit from Quartz that’s been fodder for some discussion:

    “Unfortunately the data reveal winners and losers. All men except Asians preferred Asian women, while all except black women preferred white men.”

    And in case any of y’all missed it, Fusion had this hilarious interview with “Are You Interested” creator Josh Fischer and comedian Kristina Wong on Alicia Menendez Tonight .

    Elise Hu: So one of my reactions to the disproportionate popularity of Asian women is, I don’t see troves of men flocking to Asian women in the offline world. I wonder to what extent there’s something about finding Asian women attractive online but not in “real life.” Is this a preference revealed by online dating, or changed in some way by it? How would, say, the “mask” of screens affect our preferences?

    Kat: Maybe. Maybe the “mask” of screens empowers/emboldens users to pursue the type of people they might not encounter in real life. But to your point about not seeing troves of men flocking to Asian women: I dunno, I feel like I see a strong “preference” for Asian women in real life. (I put “preference” in quotes, because I think there’s a very fine line that teeters between preferences and fetishization, but that could be a whole other conversation.)

    Elise: I actually do think there must be some of the Asian fetishization, er, “yellow fever” at play here. This just really gets in my craw, because it becomes a problem for the Asian women — Am I just loved because I’m part of an ethnic group that’s assumed to be subservient, or do I have actual value as an individual, or is it both? — and it’s a problem for men who love them — Is my husband only with me ’cause he’s a creepster who makes certain assumptions about me and my race, or can he legitimately be attracted to me as an individual? The results of this study only perpetuate social problems for both sexes involved.

    On the flip side, it’s glaring how much everybody prefers white guys and doesn’t respond to black men and women. And white men never have to question whether they’re attractive to others because of a fetish, that’s for sure.

    Kat: Dating as an Asian woman is sort of like this:

    So another study about online dating — and how people self-segregate on the interwebs — started floating around this month .

    Kevin Lewis, a researcher at the University of California, San Diego, looked at more than 125,000 new OKCupid users in a 2-1/2-month period. He saw that most people didn’t reach out to potential suitors who were outside their race or ethnicity, and if they did, they were less likely to get a response. But the researcher noticed that people who were contacted by someone of a different race on OKCupid were more likely to initiate contact or interact with someone of that race later on.

    Elise: So where does that leave us, now? The connective tissue appears to be that race definitely matters when it comes to online dating. And that general idea is not necessarily something to get our backs up about, since even studies on babies indicate we might be wired to prefer our “in groups” to whatever we perceive as “out groups.” (A Yale study of babies showed the infants that prefer Cheerios over graham crackers favored their fellow Cheerios-lovers and were not as nice to graham cracker fans.)

    But the question that I’d like to see people get at is the difference between the online and offline worlds when it comes to these preferences. Or: differences between the preferences this app’s users and other online dating communities. Maybe this is an app just for weirdos who love Asian chicks and don’t love black women? I am annoyed for the black women who seem to be clearly getting discriminated against by these online picture-scanners.

    And speaking from an Asian woman point of view, I found my time in the analog dating world to be one in which men clearly favored white women or Latinas. I am really skeptical about the odds being ever in my favor, to borrow a Hunger Games line.

    Kat: I think with all these new apps rolling in, we’re going to learn more about relationships and preferences. I’m just looking to get my hands on a study that delves deeply into racial preferences — so if anybody knows of one, holler at me!

    Elise: Yep, if this little exploration leads me to any conclusion, it’s a skepticism of data from one particular dating app, since these are going to vary community by community, and I’d like to see a lot more aggregate data before getting too uncomfortable about the results. It could be that the Are You Interested dating community is just a weirdly skewed world, and now we’re extrapolating all this meaning into it. To be continued.

    ALT.com

    Bait and switch!

    Alt.com standard (free) members are constantly encouraged to update their membership by taking out a subscription. If you click on a members picture or name you are taken to an upgrade page with the members thumbnail, handle age and area. However they have now changed this page so it no longer includes previously displayed information that told you when last that member signed into their account.

    The have deliberately withheld this information now so potential customers are unaware that an account may be inactive until after they pay for a subscription to contact that person. As Alt and other various.inc sites are full of inactive accounts this is poor business practice and I suggest anyone caught by it demand an immediate and full refund.

    Bait and Switch.

    Ever time a Standard (free) member signs in to Alt and other Various.inc dating sites they are offered the opportunity to purchase Gold or Silver membership subscription packages. I particular they tell customers that Gold will allow them to; Be the FIRST to contact new members, and they tell silver they can; Contact new members. In actual fact they can only contact new members who have also taken out a subscription. They fail to mention that new standard (free) members who form the vast majority are unable to view contacts made to them within their first 50 days of membership. As standard members mails are only held on record 30 days any lost sent is lost before it can be read.

    On contacting customer support about this I was advised that they would be able to read and reply to my contact if I purchased Standard contacts (a service only described as allowing standard members to read your profile and INITIATE contact). So they ask you to pay to contact new members yet when you do so they then tell you need to pay for an extra service to enable these new members to actually see the contact. Nowhere in the advertising or in the help pages of the site is this explained, this is all kept from the prospective customer until they have their money.

    This is Bait and Switch.

    Alt.com is part of the FFN network. I’ve had significant issues with this company for many years. Rather than detail all of the issues, I thought I’d share with you some advice on how to deal with complaints. Firstly some facts.
    1) There is no customer service. I have 15 years worth of emails logged that proves this. Your complaint will never be addressed through their stated process.
    2) Staff are shared resources across many online businesses. It;s a very low cost business and their a no KPIs for staff that are geared towards Customer service.
    3) The culture cannot be changed, The lack of customer service stems from middle to senior execs in the company that have been with the company for so long, that they don’t know any other way and are blinded to any cultural change.
    4) They will never call you. Ever. I’ve beem trying to get them to call me for 15 years to address my concerns.
    Here are some pointers to influence FFN to resolve your issues.
    1)LOG everything. Only use Email so you have an Audit trail. Do not use the online webform means of contacting them.
    2) If your issue involves unauthorised recurring charges, and ALT.COM are not listening, email your bank or financial institution and have the charges reversed. If you choose to call your bank, make sure you record the call, Emailing is better as you have an Audit trail. This was a major issues for me for years. Your bank will always reverse it.
    Advise Alt.com of your actions, and ask them to confirm that the issue is over, and that you can continue using your payment method as you require. They have a culture of banning people who reverse payments that have been fraudulent from ALT.Com. Once again this is a cultural issue of FFN never admitting any liability, or billing error.
    If your still not having your issue addressed, my advice is as follows.
    A) Find the top 3 institutional shareholders of FFN and email them with a text file of your correspondence. If you word your email politely, and your FFN emails confirm a lack of customer service, then the shareholder will move quickly to contact ffn. Any good investor will always be on the paying customers side.
    B) Update your profile on Alt.com requesting everyone to send a message to ffn to resolve your issue.
    C) Send a message to each FFN director and senior executive via Facebook or Linkedin asking them to adress your issue.

    Hope this helps

    As many of you know alt.com is an affiliate of the ffn network. There’s another major problem that I feel someone should address because it seems to me its illegal at best. I found that ffn is creating fake acct profiles of women to attract new members. I know this because I live in a very small town. The women that they say were members in my town I know for a fact don’t exist because believe me if some of these women really lived in my town I would have said forget the website and introduced myself in person.
    These websites need to be held accountable for their actions since they are making tons of money taken from hard working people who deserve to get what they paid for. This is America isn’t it?

    I was urged to renew my Gold membership before it expired. The maximum renewal period available was 6 months. As soon as my membership lapsed, I was offered an 18 month renewal at only a slightly higher cost!

    And the very day my sub expired, I received THREE “emails” from members expressing interest in me – all sent within 15 minutes! What an extraordinary coincidence. In the UK, this is called fraud.

    29th of Jul, 2013 by Dazd

    Oh there relentless. I cancelled my membership and turned all my email settings to off and Im still getting sent offers to renew my membership. As if. Plus I now know some of their ads are fake. That site really needs to be looked at hars by the FCC. Its a shame too because it did used to be a fun site and they screwed it all up..

    Alt .com is the same company as FriendsFinder. com and it is the same management team that is reposnible for the misleading and fraudulent marketing practices. In particular they claim that you can use search function to search for matching people.
    Here is how their search works. You tell it you want people in radius of 20 miles. So you expect few people. What you get is you get people from 400 miles away so they can fluff up their results. Frequenty the people who are supposed to be from neighboring cities are from out of state and occasionally Canada and Mexico. Some of the profile look like they are generad by writers. For 4 weeks I am talking with Margie Lyn P. and the stupid person is telling me to remove cookies (which I have done just so I can continue my argument) which of course does nothing for fixing their search function.
