BRIDGE tutorials

  • Bridge, like hubs connects LAN segments, but they work at Data Link Layer of the OSI model.

  • It uses the MAC [Media Access Control] address to make decision about the data packets they receive.

  • It filters packets that do not need to be forwarded to other segments based on their MAC address.

  • It forwards packets whose destination MAC address is on different network segment than the source.

  • It divides the network into multiple domains, thereby reducing the number of collisions on any network segment.
