Can the S2700 switch function as a gateway

The S2700 switch cannot be used as a gateway. The S2700 is a Layer 2 switch. If it is used as a gateway, it sends all packets that need to be forwarded at Layer 3 to the CPU to forward the packets through software. This causes a high CPU usage. Because CAR parameters are configured to protect the CPU, a large number of packets are dropped, affecting forwarding of service packets.
