Hi….all network guys… we start with the type of switching because in every interview or troubleshoot the first question always is there like how a switch learns mac address? What is the function of layer 2 switchings?
What type of switching we used? What is the layer 2 and layer 3 switchings?
Today big names like Cisco, Juniper, HP, etc maker of the switch. all switch having the same function some of the configurations are different. Every switch switching data from source to destination with the help of the type of switching technology.
From this blog maybe you are basically satisfied and this is helping you with your bright knowledge. Switching is a process that data can be transferred from source to destination. Switches operated at layer 2 in the OSI model i.e. Data Link Layer.
Now I can explain to you Layer 2 switching, In layer 2 switching data can be forwarded on the basis of layer 2 addresses.
Now-Again I can explain in brief Layer 2 Switching
The function of Layer 2 Ethernet switch:
Layer 3 Devices can perform three types of switching
CEF create two table FIB and Adjacency table
Thanks for reading. This is the basic study about layer 2 switching how it works or what type of table has formed in switch RAM. In the next blog, we will show how to switch learn MAC add and How to flow frame in a switch to switch & Function of CAM table.
