 In this type the hardware manufacturer gives permanent physical address to every network manufacturer and interface must ensure that each interface has a unique address.

CONFIGURABLE:

 

 In this type, the address may be set by the client either manually e.g. jumpers or switches on the interface or electronically. The system administrators have to coordinate to avoid the conflict.

DYNAMIC:

In this type the interface automatically gives physical address every time it is powered up. That automatic function must be reliable to save conflicts.
