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, the source of the vast majority of the industry's routers, have advanced significantly in capability and performance and Cisco now offers a comprehensive portfolio that includes routers engineered to handle the needs of users from individual telecommuters to the world's largest service providers.
