Advantages and disadvantages of repeater

A repeater is a network device that regenerates the incoming signal gives strengthen to transmit it to the next devices which are connected without losing any actual data or the information. To know more about repeater let us discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a repeater,

Advantages of the repeater:
  • Repeaters can extend a network's total distance.
  • A repeater is simple to connect.
  • Repeaters do not seriously affect network performance.
  • It is cost-effective.
  • Certain repeaters can connect networks using different physical media.
  • It has the ability to boost or strengthen the digital to retransmit.
  • Some reporters can connect networks using various physical media.

Disadvantages of the repeater:

  • Repeater are unable to reduce network traffic.
  • Limitation in the number of repeaters.
  • It cannot connect difference network architectures. 
  • It does not segment the network.
  • Repeaters do not separate the device in the collision domain.
  • Most of the repeaters on a network produce noise on the wire and increase the possibility of packet collisions.
  • A device that is separated only by a repeater is part of the same collision domain.
