There are five major sections

Processes -  routing protocols, switchin packets, thread running and system management

Kernel - interaction between hardware device and I/O management. Resource management  to process with  memory resources

Packet buffers - holding the packets in memory buffers being switched

Device Drivers - involves in efficient packet switching,. Interface between IOS process, the kernel and the hardware
