    stupid question: how many cards can a single provider burn with a MAC?

    Eduardo

      Hi from Spain again,

       

      this is just a silly question that hit my mind wihle watching some Network+ videos, assuming a bia is 48 bits, and that 24 are an ID for the Organization, dies it mean there are only 24 bits left for identifying the NIC? If that's true, dies it mean a particular vendor has a limit of 2^24 cards to sell?

       

      Thanks.
