In switch specification it is mention like Access Switch, Compact switch, Core switch, Distributed switch .
So what are differences among them according to their use/functionality ?
I saw these two terms while reading 5G core network related material. Can someone please explain the difference between these two terms ? I also want to know due to position of these switches in data center there names are different or actually they are different kinds of hardware switches and different type of functions are performed by these two ?
