A Layer 3 switch is a special network device that has the functionality of a router and a switch combined into one chassis. It works in our network by simply allowing connected devices that are on the same subnet or virtual LAN (VLAN) to exchange information at lightning speed, just like a switch that operates in the data link layer of the OSI model, but it also has the IP routing intelligence of a router built into it.
