As technology progresses, the difference between routers and switches is becoming blurred. Fundamentally, routers are Layer 3 devices that connect different networks. A common scenario is connecting a small business network to the Internet. Switches are L2 devices that interface various devices within a network. Basically, routers rely on computation to send traffic based on complex algorithms, offering flexibility at the expense of speed. Switches, by comparison, rely on largely predefined hardware configurations to forward data at the fastest feasible speed. Today's routers usually incorporate L2 switches, and many modern switches have L3 routing capability. Routers offered by Cisco, the supplier of 90% of the world's routers, have advanced significantly in function and speed and Cisco makes an extensive product line that includes routers designed to meet the needs of customers ranging from households to nationwide service providers.
