1 C h a p t er 4 1 What are the differences between forwarding and routing? Describe their interplay relationship. Routing determines route taken by packets from source to destination utilizing routing algorithms. It’s like the process of planning trip from source to the destination. It is a function that transfers data between networks using 2 routers and specific routing protocols for the destination (output) path of the data. Forwarding moves packets from a router’s input to appropriate router output; as if a process of getting through single interchange. It is a direct “in out” of a data packet to one specified output using a single router. In short , Forwarding is about moving a packet from a router’s input link to the appropriate output link. Routing is about determining the end-to- routes between sources and destinations. Regarding their interplay relationship, routing schedules while forwarding dispatches.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
