Understanding of MAU

  • A multistation access unit or Ethernet media attachment unit are both abbreviated as MAU.

  • Multistation access unit is hub or concentrator connecting a group of computers in a star topology while retaining the logical ring structure- actual wiring is in star topology with stations connected in a star pattern to a central MAU.

  • MAU provides 8 or 16 ports for connecting stations to the “ring”- includes one ring-out and one ring-in connector.

  • Advantage from actual ring is that- if one computer fails, the MSAU can bypass it and the “ring” will remain intact.

  2. {

Table showing the program

Table showing the program

int x = 5;

  • define the integer variable x = 5

printf (“%d % d %d ”, x, x < < 2, x > > 2);

  • As x = 5 so first % d gives 5

  • Second % d will take value of x after left shifting it twice, and shifting is done after converting the values to binary, binary value of 5 (000101) will be left shifted twice to make it binary 20 (0010100), so x < < 2 is 20

  • As right shifting does not affect the original value of x it’s still 5 so third % d will also show 1.
