The Differences Between Port-Centric, Static, And Dynamic Vlan Configurations in CCNA 640-801

Lesson: (5 of 10) Understanding Layer 2 Switching Technology

In this course, you will learn about switching technology in relation to Cisco networks. You'll learn how switching functions in a Cisco network, and learn about several features and protocols that have been developed by Cisco.

Learn that the basic operation of a switch involves discovering MAC addresses, filtering or forwarding frames, and preventing loops. Learn that switches use a filter table to store the MAC addresses of the devices connected to their ports. Learn that bridges and switches can cause bridging loops, which can lead to a great deal of wasted bandwidth.
