Switching Methods : Frame Forwarding Options

Frame Forwarding Options As we consider a modern-day switch. Let’s think back to the 1980s that’s when even ethernet bridges came out. Back into the 1980s, these networks are relatively slowly implementations of ethernet were 10Base2 or 10Base5 typically. Bridges were developed to limit collision domains. This allowed networks to scale somewhat you could have a collection of hubs on either side of a two-port bridge which as an example and collision saw on one side would not impact traffic …

      Difference Between Public and Private IP Address:

      What is Public and Private IP Address? One of the biggest challenges with IP version 4 (IPv4) addresses is that we’re running out of them. Simply, these are not enough IP version 4 addresses used to go around to everybody in the world that needs an IP address. IP version 6 (IPv6) is going to be coming to rescue. However, we still have a big IP version 4 deployment out there. And what are a lot of companies have done they …

        IP Address Classes and Ranges

        What are IP Address Classes and Ranges? We now understand that when we take a look at an IP address. We really don’t know which of those thirty-two (32) bits represent the network and which have those thirty-two bit represent the host. Unless we’ve got a critical piece of information do you remember what that critical piece of information was? It’s the subnet mask, the subnet mask draws that dividing line saying that these are the network bits and these …

          Difference Between Unicast, Multicast & Broadcast

          Unicast Multicast & Broadcast As we are taking to look at traffic pattern of our network. We might see traffic follows under 3 main categories (Unicast Multicast & Broadcast). The first category is unicast, unicast is one to one communication. In other words, you got one device like your pc talking to another device. Maybe a host on the internet or you are printing to a printer it’s a one to one communication. A broadcast is one to all communication …

            What is IPv4 address and Subnet Mask?

            What is IPv4 address format? First of all, what is ipv4 address? The format of the Ipv4 address is that it consists of a 32-bit address. All of these 32 bits, some of the bits host bits they represent the client devices on the network. Remaining bits represents the network it’s the network address or some people call it the address of the wire and there is the dividing line somewhere in the middle of the 32 bit that distinguishes …

              What is Collision Domain and Broadcast Domain?

              Collision Domain and Broadcast Domain What is Collision Domain and Broadcast Domain? Before going to the collision domain and broadcast domain. First, understand what is collision domain? and How does collision work? Go back to days when we use bus topology on the ethernet network may be 10base2 or 10base5 technologies. The devices attached to shared segment how to make sure there is no currently frame on that shared segment. Before they transmitted it we are not allowed to have …

                What is MAC address and CAM table?

                What is MAC address and CAM table? What is Mac address and why switch requires Mac address? A switch makes its forwarding decision for frame based on the destination Mac address. And the Mac address is 48 bit (6 bytes) address. We have a grouping of 3 bytes in beginning and 3 bytes in the end.The Organizational Unique Identifier (OUI) or Vendor code is always pick up first 3 bytes or 24 bits of MAC address. So if you would begin …
