What are some similarities and differences between Lite Layer 3 managed switches and Layer 3 managed switches?

Answer:

Both switches support static and dynamic routing. However, Lite Layer 3 managed switches are aimed at small to medium-sized networks since the maximum number of supported entries in the routing table is 64 whereas Layer 3 managed switches are aimed at medium to large-sized networks, which can support up to 8K routing table entries. Refer to the following comparison table for detail.
