Abstract

Ethernet is the most widely used type of LAN today, and as a result, the terms Ethernet and LAN are almost synonymous. We start this chapter by introducing Ethernet network interface cards on computers and switches and the differences between them. We then discuss MAC addresses, Ethernet frames, switch forwarding principles, MAC address tables, and ARP operating principles.
