In the article we offer the rationale for the mathematical model of the Ethernet-switch, obtained from the structure analysis of the transmitted frames used in the physical layer of the signal coding methods and principles of continuous process offrame switching based on their integrity in the current transport systems of computer networks. This model is verified by comparing the calculation results and the results of eXperimental studies of existing switches such as Cisco Catalyst 3750 and D-Link DGS 1100-08.
