Single Switched Network

Single Switched Network


The shift is from a single collision domain towards the multiple collision domain which is possible because of evolution of network technology such as switch and the 100 base-T form of media.

This has has isolated as transmission and reception on two separate wires. No collision hence no need for CSMA/CD.

There is a requirement of multi-port switches. This brings the capability for increased port density to enable the connection of a greater number of end system devices within a single local area network

Each end system or host within a local area network is required to be connected as part of the same IP network in order for communication to be facilitated at the network layer. The IP address however is only relevant to the host systems since switch devices operate within the scope of the link layer and therefore rely on MAC addressing for frame forwarding.


Switched Network Quiz:

Welcome to your switched network

A switch process and forwards ethernet frames in tagged mode?

A switch receives a VLAN tagged fame, but the destination MAC address can't be found in the switch's MAC address table, how will the switch react ?

All interface on a router belongs to the same broadcast domain?
If a 10GE optical module is used to connect two Huawei S5710 switches , by default the interconnected interfaces work in full -duplex mode
MAC address table provides association between a destination MAC address and the port interface via which a frame should be forwarded
MAC broadcast address in a frame is:
In auto-negotiation mode, interfaces on both ends of a link negotiate their operating parameters, including :
In the event that the configuration parameters for negotiation are changed from using auto negotiation, the defined parameters should be checked using the display interface <interface> command to verify that the negotiated parameters allow for the link layer interface negotiation to be successful. This is verified by ..
