What is a bridge then?

@cc.ca.us
A bridge is a layer2 device designed to connect network
segments together. It keeps local traffic from
travelling to the other network by reading the mac
addresses. So if Pc a on segment 1 wants to send to pc b on segment 1, the bridge would say hey, this frame is
for a pc on this side, I won't send it over to the
other side.
