This video explores the difference of traffic patterns between hubs and switches, and how the MAC address is used by switches.
- If you're gonna be using an ethernet network,…you're gonna have some box in the middle…that we call a hub or a switch.…Now, I know in other episodes,…I talk about the fact that hubs are pretty much obsolesce,…however, they are on the exam,…so let's make sure we understand…very clearly the difference between a hub versus a switch.…Now, right in front of me, I've got…all kinds of hubs and switches.…This is just a regular switch.…Here's a switch.…This is a cable modem with a built-in,…see those yellow ports, that's a switch built into it.…
