'Bridge' or 'bridge' is the term used in computing to designate a device that connects two or more computer networks that use different or the same protocols, or two segments of the same network that use the same protocol, for example, ethernet or token ring. Bridges serve to interconnect two networks, such as connecting a network of a building with another. A bridge is a free segment between the network, between the server and the client (tunnel), allowing each user to have their own independent password.

A switch or switch is a device used in computer networks to forward modules (frames) between different nodes. They have ports, as well as hubs, and the main difference between a switch and a hub is that the switch internally segments the network, with each port corresponding to a different collision domain, which means that there will be no collisions between packets from different segments — unlike hubs, whose ports share the same collision domain. Another important difference is related to network management, with a manageable switch, we can create VLANS, in this way the managed network will be divided into smaller segments. To put it more easily, the switch identifies each port and sends packets only to the destination port, thus preventing other nodes from receiving the packets.[1]
