The selected product handles more MAC addresses than its replacement, and the two models differ in other characteristics, such as the capability to be powered over Ethernet.
They prevent that data connections are kidnapped by means of ARP spoofing or corresponding IPv6 attacks, but packets can still be hijacked if a false identity (MAC address) is adopted by a host and only a simple MAC-learning switch is applied in connection with the OF-controller.
Moreover, when explicit identifiers are unavailable (e.g., because of MAC address randomization), the MS can only rely on implicit information to construct a fingerprint for the observed devices.
