Control plane

In routing, the control plane is the part of the router architecture that is concerned with drawing the network topology, or the information in a (possibly augmented) routing table that defines what to do with incoming packets.

Forwarding plane

In routing, the forwarding plane, sometimes called the data plane or user plane, defines the part of the router architecture that decides what to do with packets arriving on an inbound interface.
