In this video, learn about the Ethernet frame, its components, and how they are used by devices to route data traffic.
- We've been talking about the concept of frame…for a while, and what I wanna do in this episode…is breakdown the most important…frame type this is: an ethernet frame.…Since ethernet is so dominant out there,…I feel this is the best one for us to break down.…Now, I might wanna add there are other…types of data that have other types of frames,…however, 99% of all the data that moves on the Internet…moves on ethernet, so this is the best one to start with.…One of the things that really separates…the sheep from the goats as it were in the world…of networking are the people who really understand…how to break frames down and those who don't.…
Not only is it important for the exam,…but this would be the common banter that network nerds…would be tossing back and forth to each other.…More importantly, in other episodes,…we actually use tools that grab these frames…and allow us to analyze them, and you've got to know…how a frame is structured to be able to use those tools.…Are you sufficiently motivated, good.…Let's go ahead and get started.…
