What is MAC address?

Every network interface card has a unique identifier. This identifier is called MAC (Media Access Control) address, which is a physical address comprising six groups of hexadecimal digits. MAC addresses are composed of two parts: the first three groups of digits represent the Manufacture ID, which is a manufacturer’s ID, and the last three groups of digits represent the Card ID, which is the network card number. These two groups of ID enable us to physically distinguish each network card. In theory, no two cards in the world have the same MAC address.
