Switching properties of FL SWITCH 1824
All data telegrams that are received by the switch are saved and their validity is checked. Invalid or faulty data packets (>1522 bytes or CRC errors) and fragments (<64 bytes) are rejected. Valid data telegrams are forwarded by the switch. The switch always forwards the data using the data transmission speed that is used in the destination network segment.
The switch independently learns the addresses for termination devices, which are connected via a port, by evaluating the source addresses in the data telegrams. Only packets with unknown addresses, with a source address of this port or with a multicast/broadcast address in the destination address field are forwarded via the corresponding port. The switch can store up to 8192 MAC addresses in its address table.
