2 IPv4
3 IPv6
5 MAC + Spanning Tree Priority

uint16 NumPorts

The number of switch ports controlled by this switching service.

string BridgeAddress

Address used by this SwitchService when it must be uniquely identified. For an ethernet bridge, the MAC Address serves as the BridgeAddress. When concatenated with a SpanningTreeService Priority, a unique bridge identifier results. The MAC address is formatted as twelve hexadecimal digits (e.g., “010203040506”), with each pair representing one of the six octets of the MAC address in “canonical” bit order according to RFC 2469. In other scenarios, like Ipv6, the address is formatted as “ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff”.
