Question:
Which network device makes forwarding decisions based on the destination MAC address that is contained in the frame?

  • repeater
  • hub
  • switch
  • router

Explanation: Switches are the central connection point for a LAN and they maintain a MAC address table. The MAC address table has a port number associated with a MAC address for each particular device. The switch inspects a frame to look at the destination MAC address. The switch then looks in its MAC address table and if that MAC address is found, the switch forwards the data to the port that is associated with that particular MAC address.
