Re: Layer -7 Switch

Just like Layer2 switch switches data based on Layer-2 info (MAC address) the same way layer-7 switch can switch data based on layer-7 info. For example, you can say when http request (application layer) has this content, send data this way etc.

Cisco's LocalDirector is an example.

Hope this explains.
