LAB # 10: MAC Address SSUET/QR/112 CE-312: Data Communication 62 LAB # 10 MAC ADDRESS OBJECTIVE Switches learn MAC address by using ARP protocol. THEORY MAC ADDRESS A MAC ( media access control ) address is a unique numeric code that is permanently assigned to each unit of most types of networking hardware, such as network interface cards (NICs), by the manufacturer at the factory. An NIC, also referred to as a network adapter , is a circuit board that is plugged into a slot on a motherboard (the main circuit board on a computer) to enable a computer to physically connect to a network cable and thereby communicate over a network (i.e., to one or more other computers). Some computers use network interface adapter circuitry that is built directly into the motherboard instead of a separate card. The purpose of MAC addresses is to provide a unique hardware address or physical address for every node on a local area network (LAN) or other network. A node is a point at which a computer or other device (e.g., a printer or router) is connected to the network.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
