Switch

Generally called  as two  layer switch . it  performs  on physical  and data  link  layers. It  is  a bridge it has many  ports  that allow  better  performance. Since  it is a bridge with many  ports it allows  allocating a unique port to  each station hence each station has  its own  independent identity. It makes  bridge  performance  better  as it has a buffer  to hold  the  frames for processing also it  has a switching path that forwards the frame  faster.
