ADG715 in UART Switching

I have selected ADG715 for switching the UART(Tx,Rx) signals. We selected this IC to switch TX,RX signals between the microcontroller and PC. I want to know would that switch provide the effective switching speed for serial communication?

    1Hz = 2 bps, 1 bit is a half of period. Bit Rate = 1/(Tb), Where Tb is the bit duration.

    Therefore the frequency of the signal should be ~57.5 k Hz. The ADG715 switch will pass a signal of this frequency. Please take note of the rise time of the signal, this may test the limitations of the IC, but a signal in the kHz range should not have a rise time that will effect the bandwidth of the ADG715 switch.
