Network switching is the process of channeling data received from any number of input ports to another designated port that will transmit the data to its desired destination. The device through with the input data passes is called a switch. Data entering a port is referred to as ingress, while data leaving the port is referred to as egress. The switch represents the medium through which the data is routed to its final destination. There are different types of network switching.
