    ; Interoperability involves making sure that the data can be understood by equipment manufactured

    by different vendors that use different operating systems, hardware or languages. ; The data rate range for X.25 is from 9.6 Kbps to 256 Kbps.

    ; IBM's Token Ring specification is nearly identical and compatible with IEEE's 802.5 specification. ; OSI stands for Open Systems Interconnection

    ; The three switching modes included in Catalyst 1900/2820 switches are: fastforward, fragmentfree,

    and store and forward.

    ; A backoff algorithm is used to prevent two nodes from retransmitting simultaneously and creating

    an endless number of collisions by delaying the retransmission for a variable length of time on

    each node.

    ; A Network Control Protocol frame in a Point to Point Protocol is used for selecting and configuring

    the network layer protocol. A Link Control Protocol (LCP) is used to establish and configure a


    FDDI specifies protocols at both the MAC sublayer and the physical layer of the OSI reference


    ; In a Token Ring network architecture, what does it mean when a node possesses a token? When

    a node receives the token, if the node has data to transmit, it flips a bit in the token and transmits

    the data. If the node has no data to transmit, it sends the token to the next node. ; What two types of frames are found on a Token Ring network? There is a token frame and a data

    frame used on a Token Ring network.

    ; A Frame Check Sequence (FCS) in the IEEE 802.3 frame includes a CRC value.

    ; “plntspa” – plant spa is the reverse order of the layers of the OSI model.

    ; Which statements are true of a preamble in the IEEE 802.3 frame? The preamble is an indication

    of the start of a new frame. It contains alternating zeroes and ones.

    ; The session layer is usually implemented in the software. The physical and data link layers are

    usually implemented in hardware and software. The remaining layers are usually implemented in

    the software.

    occurred on the network.

    ; The ITU X.25 Standard applies to the physical, data link, and network layers' protocols. ; The maximum data transmission rate for HSSI is 52 Mbps.

    ; The two header formats in ATM terminology are: User Network Interface (UNI) and Network Node

    Interface (NNI).

    ; Out-of-band management is network fault tolerant, because it can manage a switch or hub even

    when network services are interrupted.

    ; The data rate range for X.25 is from 9.6 Kbps to 256 Kbps.

    ; In a Frame Relay network, which statement is true of Forward Explicit Congestion (FECN) when

    the network is congested? Both FECN and Backward Explicit Congestion (BECN) contain a bit

    that is set to "1" and is sent by DTE to upper protocol layers to notify of traffic congestion between

    source and destination.

    ; In a Cisco router, configuration register information can be used to select a boot source and

    default file name, enable booting from a TFTP server, and load operating software from ROM. ; The command SHOW CDP NEIGHBOR DETAIL will show the IOS version. CDP does not need

    an IP address to run, it can use MAC.


; The configuration register has 16 bits.

    ; What is the sequence of events that occurs when you power up your router? The router first tests

    its hardware, then attempts to locate and load an IOS image, and finally locates and applies its

    specific configuration information.

    ; The SHOW STARTUP-CONFIG will show the configuration stored in NVRAM. The SHOW

    RUNNING-CONFIG will show the configuration currently running.

    ; A good connection is indicated by which of the following in an output display of the PING

    command? A series of exclamation points (!!!!!) indicates a good connection. A series of dots (…..)

    indicates that the pings timed out.

    ; The response to the command ROUTER# CONFIGURE ? will be a list of possible options from

    where the router can be configured.

    ; The boot field is the lowest four bits of the configuration register.

    ; If a mistake is made in specifying the file name in the COPY TFTP FLASH command, the router

    will still function because it still has working image in RAM.

    ; The router will try to resolve an incorrect command to an IP address, thinking it is a hostname, so

    it can establish a Telnet session with it.

    ; You would use either LOGOUT or EXIT to log out of the router and end your session. ; The configuration register setting is at the last line of the SHOW VERSION command. This

    command also shows router up time and IOS version.

    ; CTRL-Z will get the user completely out of the configuration mode. EXIT takes the user back one

    step. LOGOUT terminates your session.

    ; TERMINAL MONITOR sends Debug output to the VTY session.

    ; The command executive is the part of the IOS software that provides the user interface and

    interprets the commands you type. The configuration register is a memory location in NVRAM

    that controls the router's operation as it boots up.

    ; You must have an IP address assigned to an Interface in order for CDP to operate? False. CDP

    will multicast to a functional MAC address. There is no need to have any network layer address

    assigned to the interface to get the CDP messages to go out.

    ; Supernetting removes some of the rightmost bits of the default subnet mask, which summarizes

    several contiguous Class C networks into a single network entity.

    ; “ROUTER# PING” Extended ping requires Privileged mode, and also requires that no command-

    line options be entered (because it prompts for each option).

    ; To configure a name-to-address mapping in the router mapping table, you would issue which of

    the following commands? ROUTER(CONFIG-IF)# IP HOST or ROUTER(CONFIG)#IP HOST ; The significance of the address is that it is a directed broadcast to network

    ; Subnet bits are taken from the highest-order contiguous bits of the host address in order to add

    subnets and/or reduce the number of hosts.

    ; A Class D network is used for multicasting, not for normal IP network/host addressing, so it

    doesn't have a default subnet mask.

    ; Up to six name server addresses can be specified using the ROUTER(CONFIG)# IP NAME-

    SERVER command.

    ; Given a subnet address of and a subnet mask of, what is the highest allowed

    host address on this subnet?

    ; If we saw the following subnet addresses, what would be the subnet mask associated with these

    subnets? | | | -

    ; The IOS command you would use to define a global format to view the subnet mask during the

    "current session" is ROUTER # TERM IP NETMASK-FORMAT.

    ; Subnet bits are added to the default subnet mask to segment the network into subnets. ; A user on a Washington DC network receives the following response after issuing a router

    command: Tracing the route to Honolulu 1Tokyo(127.893.81.2) 800 ms 6 ms 4 ms 2

    Lisbon(141.925.64.7) 600 ms 8 ms 6 ms Honolulu(151.666.59.4) 400 ms 10 ms 8 ms Washington

    dc# This response was most likely obtained by issuing the command: WASHIGNGTONDC#


    ; We do not assign IP addresses to terminal lines. The terminal lines include the console, auxiliary

    port, and virtual terminal lines 0 - 4, which are used to configure the router. IP addresses are

    assigned to the interfaces on the router.

    Telnet is the only command that would test all layers of a protocol up to the application layer. ; The leading bit pattern 1111 is associated with Class E addresses, which range from 240-254 in

    the first octet.

    ; The Class D addresses have bit pattern which begins with 1110. This allows values from 224 -

    239 to be assigned for the purpose of multicasting.

    ; The spanning-tree algorithm allows for the prevention of duplication of forwarding of packets and

    forwards packets in a controlled manner.

    ; ICMP Redirect is sent by a gateway to the host. It instructs the host to use a different route when

    the router detects that its route is not as optimal as that of another router. ; The TCP/IP protocol suite does not have a formal session layer.

    ; RPCs provide transparency to make remote calls look local, and portability of applications

    between heterogeneous systems. RPC is a connectionless session.


    ; ARP is a broadcast protocol, and ARP caching is used because broadcasts are expensive.

    Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) is an example of and RPC implementation. ; Which statement is true of WinSock? It provides the means for sharing an Internet connection

    between multiple IP protocol suite utilities

    ; NetBIOS can run over IPX, IP, and NetBEUI but not AppleTalk.

    ; Sockets allow multiple applications to use the same TCP/IP connection.

    ; Inverse Address Resolution Protocol (InARP) is generally used by nonbroadcast networks such as

    Frame Relay.

    ; The TCP/IP protocol suite has four layers.

    ; ICMP, IP, ARP, and RARP all map to OSI layer 3.

    ; Fragmentation is a process that occurs on a router somewhere between the source and

    destination. This process segments the datagram into a convenient size to fit into a single frame

    for transport over the network.

    ; If an intermediate node such as a router becomes congested, there is no mechanism defined that

    can notify TCP.

    ; IGRP is a distance vector and Interior Gateway Protocol with a 224 maximum network diameter

    (maximum 224 hops).

    ; The two mechanisms that make up a routing protocol are selecting the best route and transmitting

    the data

    ; Aging in a distance vector routing algorithm is set for all routing information.

    ; How can the administrator change how IGRP selects routes? The administrator can adjust the

    metric weights used for determining the route selection

    ; Routing updates are the method used to maintain the routing table.

    ; A route is removed from the routing table after seven update periods. In IGRP, updates are

    broadcast every 90 seconds. After three update periods where a route is missed, the route is

    considered unreachable. After seven periods, the route is removed.

    ; Low overhead of a routing algorithm is normally associated with CPU usage, and bandwidth.

    Accuracy is associated with optimal route.

    A default route is normally a type of static route that can be known as the gateway of last resort,

    where all nonroutable packets are forwarded to for further handling.

    ; The maximum number of hops used in EIGRP is 224.

    ; RIP authentication command can be used only with RIP version 2.

    ; In a hybrid network, the nonroutable packets are routed to a static router designated a router of

    last resort.

    ; For larger or complex networks, if the holddown period is made sufficiently large, then problems

Bridges work at the MAC sublayer of Datalink and forwards data to the network segment with the correct MAC address. Runs at Full Duplex, and can cause Broadcast Storms due to forwards to all attached networks when a broadcast. Bridges cannot read network numbers.

    Routers filter by both hardware and network address. Only forward packets to the network segment it is destined for.

    Data Encapsulation is process where info is wrapped in the data section of another protocol in the chain of Layers. Each layer encapsulates the layer immediately above it as data flows down the protocol stack.

Chapter 2

    Routers do not handle as much traffic as switches because routers take longer to process frames and packets because there is more to look at.

    Three kinds of switching

    ; Port switching allows a port to be assigned to a specific network segment.

    ; Frame Switching is used to increase bandwidth by allowing transmissions to occur in parallel.

    ; Cell Switching is used in ATM environments were cells are switched.

    Three switching modes

    ; Store and forward LAN switch copies the entire frame into buffers, and runs a CRC. High


    ; Cut-Through LAN switch only copies the destination address and immediately forwards out

    the correct interface. All errors are filtered. Lowest latency.

    ; Fragment Free Modification of cut-through where the switch waits for the collision window to

    pass before forwarding. Checks only for collisions.

    Frame identification (tagging) uniquely assigns a user-defined ID to each frame‟s header field as it

    passes through the switch fabric. After passing the fabric, it removes the header for transmittal to the target host. It then removes the VLAN ID since nothing outside the switch would understand it. (Inter-Switch Link ISL is the only exception and keeps the VLAN ID as it passes over the ISL link.) All Layer 2 functions.

The CSMA/CD Ethernet IEEE committee is defined as which of the following?

    IEEE 802.3 uses CSMA/CD to access a network at a variety of speeds over different media.

    Other physical variations include

    10BaseT Cat 3 5 cable with one pair for sending, other pair for receiving @ 100 meters

    10Base2 Thin coaxial cable @ 185 meters

    10Base5 Thick coaxial cable @ 500 meters

The maximum distance of a 10Base5 network is which of the following?

    500 meters per segment.

Which of the following is a characteristic of a switch, but not of a repeater?

    Switches are network devices that filter, and forwards frames based on MAC address. Will

    send broadcast to all connected ports though.

How does the cut-through switching technique work?

    Packet switching where data is exiting the switch at the same time it is still entering the

    inbound port.

How do switches use store and forward?

    This is a packet-switching technique in which frames are completely processed before being

    forwarded out the port. The process includes calculating the CRC and checking the

    destination address. Frames are stored until network resources are available.


Choose all of the following that are needed to support full-duplex Ethernet.

    Full duplex NICs

    Loopback and collision detection disabled.

What two types of technology does 100BaseT use?

    CSMA/CD and 802.3u. 100-Mbps baseband Fast Ethernet using UTP. Sends pulse signals

    over the network segment when no traffic is present.

Choose all of the following that are advantages to segmenting with routers.

    A user-assigned ID defined to each frame.

    Used in VLANs to uniquely identify each frame.

Which of the following describes a full-duplex transmission?

    Uses a point to point connection from the transmitter of the transmitting station to the receiver

    of the receive station. Simultaneous data transmission between a sending and receiving


    If a frame is received at a switch and only the destination hardware address is read before the frame is forwarded, what type of switching method are you using?

    Cut-Through Switching. The device reads, processes, and forwards packets as soon as the

    destination address is looked up and the outgoing port determined. On-the-fly.

Which is true regarding store-and-forward switching method?

    Latency depends on frame length. Once received, the process calculates the CRC, checks

    the destination address, and temporarily stores the message. This has a higher latency period

    due to lag time in the router.

Which of the following switching types is the default for Cisco 5505s?

    Store and forward.

What is the IEEE specification for Spanning Tree?

    802.1d. STP is a bridge protocol that uses spanning-tree on a learning bridge to dynamically

    work around loops in a network topology by creating a spanning tree. Bridges exchange

    BPDU messages with other bridges to detect loops, and then shutdown interfaces that are


What does the Spanning-Tree Algorithm (STA) do?

    STA is implemented by STP to prevent loops. Used by Spanning-Tree protocol to create a

    spanning tree.

Which can be true regarding VLANs?

    They are created by location, function, group, and department. Virtual LANs are a group of

    devices on one or more LANs that are configured so they communicate as if they were

    attached to the same wire when they are actually located on different segments. VLANs are

    based on logical grouping instead of physical and are very flexible.


Of the three switching types, which one has the lowest latency?


Of the three switching types, which one has the highest latency?

    Store and Forward.

Chapter 3

DOD Model

    Process/Application Layer (OSI Application, Presentation, Session) defines protocols for node-to-node application communication and controls user interface specs.

    Host-to-Host (OSI Transport Layer) defines protocols for setup of transmission service for applications. Creates reliable end-to-end communication and ensures the error-free delivery of data.

    Covers packet sequencing and data integrity.

    Internet (OSI Network Layer) gives hosts IP addresses, handles routing of packets, and communication flow between hosts.

    Network Access (OSI Data Link and Physical Layers) oversees hardware addressing and defines protocols for the physical transmission

UDP does not create a virtual circuit, and does not contact the destination before delivering info. But

    it also does not trust the lower layers and runs its own CRC. When IP sends a datagram, it has been informed from the upper layer of the IP address. However, IP

    must also inform a Network Access protocol like Ethernet or Token Ring of the destination hardware

    address. This is where ARP finds the hardware address for Ethernet. DSAP Destination Service Access Point - The SAP of the network node designated in the destination field of a packet.

    SSAP Source Service Access Point The SAP of the network node designated in the source field of a packet.

Which frame type use DSAPs and SSAPs to identify the upper-layer protocol?

    802.2 802.2 frames are really 802.3 frames with Logical Link Control header information.

What does the acronym ARP stand for?

    Which protocol gets a hardware address from a known IP address?

    Address Resolution Protocol. Used to map IP addresses to MACs.

    IP. It looks at the destination network address in the packet, forwards it based on the routing

    tables, and determines the best route to the destination.

Which port numbers are used by TCP and UDP to set up sessions with other hosts?
