As computer technology advances, the distinction between router and switch products is becoming less clear. Essentially, routers are Layer 3 products that connect different networks. A typical example is connecting a small business network to the Internet. Switches are L2 devices that interface various devices that share the same network. Basically, routers rely on computation to move data based on sophisticated algorithms, providing intelligence at the expense of throughput. Switches, in contrast, depend on mostly predefined hardware configurations to forward traffic at the highest feasible speed. Today's routers typically include Layer 2 switches, and many of today’s switches include some Layer 3 routing functionality. Routers developed by Cisco Systems, the source of the vast majority of the world's routers, have advanced dramatically in capability and performance and Cisco now offers an extensive product line that includes routers built to meet the requirements of users from households to the world's largest service providers.
