What action will occur if a switch receives a frame with the destination MAC address FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF?

  • The switch forwards it out all ports except the ingress port.
  • The switch shares the MAC address table entry with any connected switches.
  • The switch does not forward the frame.
  • The switch sends the frame to a connected router because the destination MAC address is not local.
Explanation & Hint:

The switch forwards a frame with the destination MAC address FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF out all ports except the ingress (receiving) port. This is the typical behavior for broadcast frames, as they are intended to be received by all devices within the same local network segment. By forwarding the frame to all ports except the one it came in on, the switch ensures that all devices connected to the same LAN segment have the opportunity to process the broadcasted message or frame.
