Layer 3 Switch Vs Router: What Is Your Best Bet?

In the networking world, term like layer 3 switch and router gets thrown around often – both are seeing broad deployment in network data transmission. Generally speaking, a layer 3 switch connects hosts to form local area networks (LANs) while routers connect multiple LANs into wide area networks (WANs). We may get confused regarding layer 3 switch vs router: they bear much similarities as they both support the same routing protocols, inspect incoming packets and make dynamic routing decisions b...
