Switches and Bridges are pretty similar, both operate at the Data Link layer (just above Physical) and both can filter data so that only the appropriate segment or host receives a transmission. Both filter packets based on the physical address (AKA MAC - Media Access Control - address) of the sender/receiver although newer switches sometimes include the capabilities of a router and can forward data based on IP address (operating at the Network Layer) and are referred to as IP Switches. Often the desired results could be achieved using either a switch or a bridge but *in general* bridges are used to extend the distance capabilities of the network while minimizing overall traffic, and switches are used to primarily for their filtering capabilities to create multiple, smaller virtual LAN's out of one large LAN for easier management/administration (V-Lan's).
The main difference between them is --->
Bridge can connect only TWO networks/ LANs/ Hosts, means bridge has only TWO ports. While...
Switch can connect more than TWO networks/ LANs/ Hosts because switch has more than TWO ports.
Or you can say that a bridge with more than TWO ports is known as a Switch.
The IEEE specs define bridges... and those bridges have tons of ports, not just two. The difference bridge/switch is mainly marketing.
No Difference between north and south
the main difference it that one is a arch bridge and the other is a beam bridge but all in all there is not much difference
The difference is exactly the same as the difference between civil engineering blueprints for a suspension bridge and the actual suspension bridge after it has been built.
It is a six port ethernet bridge with six computer capability networking.
the computer scientist are more formula oriented by working more with the software and their architecture while the computer technology scientist act on a more interrelationship between the hardware and software. Bsc Computer technology is a bridge for IT and Computer science
giant cables and abutments
a suspension bridge can sway back and forth where a regular bridge can also be a lift bridge or a drawbridge.
Bridge goes over , tunnel goes under.
A cantilever bridge has cantilever beams at the end spans, while a beam bridge does not.
There are no similarities between the two bridges. They are completely and totally different.
The span is the distance between supports. The sum of the span lengths is the bridge length.
Yes, they are two different bridges.
The different between suspension bridge and beam bridge are beam bridge are for short distance but suspension bridge for long distance. Beam bridge are used for highway passes and suspension bridge for wide waterway passes.
bridge is designed for use between LANs that use identical protocols for the physcial and link layer.
one is your mom
There is no great difference between between the two in principlebut,In a Carey foster's bridge there is no end resistance whereas in the case of a metre bridge end resistance afffects our readings.Hence Carey foster bridge is more accurate than metre bridge .Carey foster bridge can also measure low resistance and high resistance but a metre bridge cannot do so.
The people from the South will have a slightly different accent. Y'all ;-)
A Bridge Router or brouter is a network device that works as a bridge and as a router

A bridge acts as "bridge" between two networks or network subnets. A repeater merely strengthens the signal. You can have a repeater that only acts on one wire.
Minor bridge have width up to 12.00 mtr and a major bridge have width above up 12.00 mtr.
Bridges have shutters and barrage have gates
The modern (1973) bridge is wider and able to withstand higher vehicle payloads.
A bridge which nos of span are more than two called major bridge and a bridge which nos of span is one or two called miner bridge
