Consistent network device naming

Consistent network device naming: Cert Prep: Red Hat Certified System Engineer (EX300)
Consistent network device naming: Cert Prep: Red Hat Certified System Engineer (EX300)

In the past Linux network device names were easy to type and remember because they were short such as eth0. However, these are not consistent names. You could unplug the eth0 ethernet device and eth1 would become eth0 on the next boot. This is a problem so Linux by way of systemd has consistent network naming based on BIOS information, slot location, and MAC addresses.
