IP switching

   1. A switch, developed by Ipsilon Networks, that combines intelligent Internet Protocol (IP) routing with highspeed Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switching hardware. The IP protocol stack is implemented on ATM hardware, allowing the system to adapt dynamically to the flow requirements of the network traffic as defined in the packet header.
   2. A technique that uses network-layer protocols which provide routing services to add capabilitiestolayer2switching.IPswitching locates paths in a network by using routing protocols and then forwards packets along that route at layer 2. IP switching is designed for networks that use switches rather than networks built around repeater hubs and routers.
   See also IP over ATM.
