IP Addressing and MAC Addressing
What is IP Addressing
Mac Addressing is short for Media Access Control address, a hardware address that uniquely identifies each node of a network. MAC addressing is only used in a LAN and it is an identifier assigned to network interfaces for communication. A MAC Address is a piece of information coded into a NIC (Network Information card) in 48 bit binary that allows users to send info between computers in a LAN (local area network).
