As technology progresses, the distinction between routers and switches is becoming less clear. Essentially, routers are Layer 3 devices that connect networks with one another. A typical scenario is connecting a small business network to the Internet. Switches are Layer 2 (L2) devices that interconnect various devices that share the same network. Basically, routers depend on CPUs to send traffic based on sophisticated software, providing intelligence at the expense of throughput. Switches, by comparison, depend upon mostly fixed hardware designs to forward traffic at the highest feasible rate. The current generation of routers typically come with L2 switching capability, and many modern switches have L3 routing functionality. Routers offered by Cisco, the source of the vast majority of the world's routers, have improved dramatically in function and performance and Cisco now makes an extensive portfolio that features routers engineered to handle the requirements of customers ranging from individual telecommuters to the world's largest service providers.
