A maximum transmission unit (MTU) represents the maximum size an IP packet can be to traverse the network from one end to the other without the need to fragment it as it passes through different network devices. Networks are very diverse and use different media types, ranging from wired to wireless technologies. Each one of the different topologies and network types can use different frame types. If you have a very large frame traversing through the network and it reaches an area that does not support the size of the frame, it will be split up into smaller pieces in . . .
