Routing

Routing is a phrase that refers to  the process of moving a packet of data in a network from its source to a destination. Routing is usually performed by a dedicated networking device called a router and is a key feature of the Internet in that it enables messages to pass from one computer to another and eventually reach the target machine.

By forwarding network traffic among networks and selecting the best paths to utilize for moving data through a network, routing ensures optimal networking efficiency. Our routing dictionary offers a glossary of important terms you need to know.
