unmanaged switch

Unmanaged Ethernet switches are unmanaged switches that, unlike managed Ethernet switches, use automatically negotiated ports to transmit parameters such as the data rate or set half-duplex or full-duplex as transmission modes. In addition, unmanaged switches have no concept of virtual LANs (VLANs

).Unmanaged switches use amedium access control (MAC) address table. This table keeps track of the dynamically learned MAC addresses and the corresponding switch port on which the MAC address was learned. The inclusion of a MAC address table means that unmanaged switches provide a separate collision domain per port. This is a key differentiator between an unmanaged Ethernet switch and an Ethernet hub.
