I'm a teacher in an IT school.
My specialty: the local network (LAN).
For convenience to analyze traffic on the LAN, I'm searching hub, not switches. Do you know some company who still sale hub? Awaiting for your answer and best regards.

I don't think you can buy HUBS anymore. Those devices are history now and even if you find some, they won't be compliant with the new standards in the industry. You can simply use a switch and then explain the kids or students the differences since they're not so big and important.

Switches are still used as an important device on networks.
