Re: routing and switching

Hi,

In that context, I would define 'routing' as the ability to run routing protocols, such as OSPF, in order to determine where to send packets destined for various networks. Switching, on the other hand, is the process of using the information provided by routing protocols in order to forward packets received over an interface to another interface.
