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