Switching fabric is the combination of hardware and software that moves data coming in to a network node out by the correct port (door) to the next node in the network.
(1) The interconnect architecture used by a switching device, which redirects the data coming in on one of its ports out to another of its porterydays. The word "fabric" comes from the resulting criss-crossed lines when all the inputs on a switch with hundreds of ports are connected to all possible outputs.
