Routing is the process of moving data between two devices. Forwarding is the process of collecting data from one device and sending it to another device.
Switching involves collecting data from one device and sending it to multiple devices based on the MAC address of the packets.

Hi,

The differences between routing and switching are:

Function: Routing involves determining the best path for data packets to traverse multiple networks, while switching focuses on forwarding packets within a local network.

Layer: Routing operates at the network layer (Layer 3) of the OSI model, while switching operates at the data link layer (Layer 2).

Decision Basis: Routing decisions are made based on the destination IP address, whereas switching decisions are made based on the destination MAC address.

Network Scope: Routing is used for interconnecting networks and enabling communication between different networks, while switching is used for local network connectivity.

Thanks

Routing is the process of moving data between two devices. Forwarding is the process of collecting data from one device and sending it to another device. Finally, switching is the process of collecting data from one device and sending it to another device along with a path.
