  Bridging (networking) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The bridging functions are confined to network bridges which interconnect the network segments.
Source route bridging is used primarily on Token-Ring networks, and is standardized in Section 9 of the IEEE 802.2 standard.
The spanning tree protocol is not used, the operation of the network bridges is simpler, and much of the bridging functions are performed by the end systems, particularly the sources, giving rise to its name.

 Social network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Research in a number of academic fields have demonstrated that social networks operate on many levels, from families up to the level of nations, and play a critical role in determining the way problems are solved, organizations are run, and the degree to which individuals succeed in achieving their goals.
Eigenvector centrality is a measure of the importance of a node in a network.
Network or global-level density is the proportion of ties in a network relative to the total number possible (sparse versus dense networks).

Bridges and routers are generally used to connect networks that use similar protocols, while gateways are used to connect networks that use dissimilar protocols.
Bridges and routers are usually separate hardware components that are connected directly to the transmission media at the intersection point of the two separate networks.

 Lantronix Switching Tutorial: Server Switches, Congestion and Network Capacity
A moderately loaded 10 Mbps Ethernet network is able to sustain utilization of 35 percent and throughput in the neighborhood of 2.5 Mbps after accounting for packet overhead, inter-packet gaps and collisions.
Network response times (the user-visible part of network performance) suffers as the load on the network increases, and under heavy loads small increases in user traffic often results in significant decreases in performance.
In real world networks, crowded segments cause many problems, so their impact on switch consideration is not important for most users, since networks should be designed to eliminate crowded, congested segments.

 Bridging and IBM Networking Overview
Provides concurrent routing and bridging, which is the ability to bridge a given protocol on some interfaces in a router and concurrently route that protocol on other interfaces in the same router.
Provides integrated routing and bridging, which is the ability to route a given protocol between routed interfaces and bridge groups, or to route a given protocol between bridge groups.
In integrated routing and bridging, the BVI is introduced to avoid confusing the protocol configuration model when a specific protocol is both bridged and routed in a bridge group.

 Bridging
It is sometimes useful to divide one physical network (such as an Ethernet segment) into two separate network segments without having to create IP subnets and use a router to connect the segments together.
Situation one is where your physical network segment is overloaded with traffic, but you do not want for whatever reason to subnet the network and interconnect the subnets with a router.
Only the network traffic destined for interfaces on the “other” side of the bridge would be sent to the other network, reducing congestion on each network segment.
