  1. A media access control address (MAC address) of a device is a unique identifier assigned to a network interface controller (NIC) for communications at the data link layer of a network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

  2. MAC address stands for MEDIA ACCESS CONTROL Address which identifies a physical device in a network. It is a 6 byte long binary number assigned to every physical device in a network.

  3. A MAC (media access control) address is a hardware identification number that uniquely identifies each device on a network. The MAC address is manufactured into every network card, such as an Ethernet card or Wi-Fi card, and therefore cannot be changed.

  4. Media Access Control Address is a physical address which works at Data Link Layer. MAC Addresses are unique 48-bits hardware number of a computer, which is embedded into network card (known as Network Interface Card) during the time of manufacturing. MAC Address is also known as Physical Address of a network device. In IEEE 802 standard, Data Link Layer is divided into two sublayers –
    a) Logical Link Control(LLC) Sublayer
    b) Media Access Control(MAC) Sublayer
    MAC address is used by Media Access Control (MAC) sublayer of Data-Link Layer. MAC Address is word wide unique, since millions of network devices exists and we need to uniquely identify each.
