There are some subtle technological differences between bridging and
switching. Switches usually have a higher port-density, and can perform
forwarding decisions at wire speed, due to specialized hardware circuits
called ASICs (Application-Specific Integrated Circuits). Otherwise,
bridges and switches are nearly identical in function.
Ethernet switches build MAC address tables through a dynamic learning
process. A switch behaves much like a hub when first powered on. The
switch will flood every frame, including unicasts, out everyport but the
originating port.

Switch ports participating in STP progress through five port states:
Blocking
Listening
Learning
Forwarding
Disabled
