Definitions Edit

Hardware Edit

A bridge is

[t]he interconnection between 2 networks using the same communications method, the same kind of transmission medium, and the same addressing structure; also the equipment used in such an interconnection.[1]

Software Edit

A bridge program is a computer program written for a specific pair of software applications which exchange data. This bridge program converts the data (either in-coming or out-going) from one format to another so the two software applications can work together without having to be modified or rewritten.
