Managed switch : switch that can be managed by accesing it remotely. Typically you need to create interface vlan for management purpose.

Unmanaged switch : switch that cannot be accessed remotely. Usually the the switch is very simple and only need to configure at the first time or the switch is not under your authorization.

Well, now and days when we talk about SDN, it mean we are going to use white box switches. AFAIK switches works at the L2 level and routers work at the L3 level. Is the same concept applicable for white box switches or they can have support for routing also ?
