Network switching

In a network, a switch is a device that channels incoming data from any of multiple in a network, a switch is a device that channels incoming data from any of multiple input ports to the specific output port that will take it toward its intended destination.

In a local area network (LAN) using Ethernet, a network switch determines where to send each incoming message frame by looking at the physical device address (also known as the Media Access Control address or MAC address). Switches maintain tables that match each MAC address to the port from which the MAC address has been received.

If a frame is to be forwarded to a MAC address that is unknown to the switch infrastructure, it is flooded to all ports in the switching domain. Broadcast and multicast frames are also flooded.

This is known as BUM flooding broadcast, unknown unicast, and multicast flooding. This capability makes a switch a Layer 2 or data-link layer device in the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) communications model.

Network switching


Routing is used to tie multiple networks together. For example, you would use a router to connect your networked computers to the Internet and thereby share an Internet connection among many users. The router will act as a dispatcher, choosing the best route for your information to travel so that you receive it quickly. Routers analyze the data being sent over a network, change how it is packaged and send it to another network or over a different type of network.

They connect your business to the outside world, protect your information from security threats, and can even decide which computers get priority over others. Depending on your business and your networking plans, you can choose from routers that include different capabilities.

These can include functions such as:

  • Firewall: specialized software that examines incoming data and protects your business network against attacks

  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): A way to allow remote employees to safely access your network remotely

  • IP Phone network: Combine your company's computer and a telephone network, using voice and conferencing technology, to simplify and unify your communications.
