Which attribute is used by a bridge to make forwarding decisions?
source IP address
source MAC address
destination IP address
*** destination MAC address
Layer 4-7 protocol address
What is the effect of adding additional hosts to a half-duplex Ethernet network? (Choose three.)
*** collisions increase
*** jam signals increase
jam signals decrease
*** throughput decreases
How does an Ethernet bridge handle an incoming frame? (Choose three.)
The source MAC address and input interface pair are added to the bridging table.
*** The destination MAC address and input interface pair are added to the bridging table.
If no match to the destination MAC address is found in the bridging table, the frame is discarded.
*** If no match to the destination MAC address is found in the bridging table, the frame is flooded out all other interfaces.
*** If a match to the destination MAC address is found in the bridging table, the frame is forwarded out the associated interface.
If a match to the source MAC address is found in the bridging table, the frame is forwarded to all ports.
Which of the following is used to build a switching table?
source IP addresses
destination IP addresses
destination MAC addresses
*** source MAC addresses
After a collision occurs on a half-duplex Ethernet network, how does a transmitting host proceed? (Choose two.)
It does not stop transmitting.
*** It listens to determine if the network is in use before attempting to retransmit.
It resumes transmitting while the jam signal clears the wire.
*** It resumes transmitting based on the NIC back-off algorithm.
It will take priority and be the first host to transmit after the collision.
Which statements describe asymmetric switching? (Choose three.)
It uses data compression algorithms to manage higher bandwidth interfaces.
*** It is often used to provide high bandwidth uplinks for a number of lower bandwidth client interfaces.
*** It provides connections between network segments that operate at different bandwidths.
It uses cut-through forwarding when going from a lower bandwidth to a higher bandwidth interface.
It is used to provide more bandwidth to network clients than to backbone or server links.
*** It may require buffering frames before forwarding to the destination interface.
Which statements are true concerning the shared memory buffering used by an Ethernet switch? (Choose two.)
*** Frames are processed through a single queue.
*** All frames are placed in a common memory buffer.
Frames are placed in a queue for the destination port.
A port with a full memory buffer can cause frames for available ports to be delayed.
Each switch port is statically assigned a buffer of equal size.
Which statements are true regarding hubs? (Choose three.)
*** Hubs operate at Layer 1 of the OSI model.
They create separate collision domains.
*** Signals are distributed through all ports.
Layer 2 addresses are used to make decisions.
They calculate the CRC for each frame received prior to forwarding.
*** Bandwidth is shared among all connected users.
What are the functions of routers? (Choose three.)
improving network performance by increasing latency by twenty to thirty percent
*** segmenting broadcast domains
*** forwarding packets based on destination network layer addresses
*** segmenting collision domains
forwarding packets as soon as the destination MAC address is read
developing routing table entries based on source IP addresses
Which of the following devices use physical addresses to make forwarding decisions? (Choose two.)
Which form of buffering is used by bridges?
Switching may be implemented to improve the performance of which of the following networking technologies? (Choose three.)
*** Ethernet 10BASE-T
*** Token Ring
Hubs are concerned with which PDU?
What does switch latency describe?
forwarding method used by a switch
time it takes for a frame to be received by a switch
*** improvement in network performance from using a switch
time delay between when a frame enters and exits a switch
increase in the size of a collision domain from using a switch
Where are switching tables stored in a Cisco LAN switch?
Which switching mode changes to store-and-forward mode after it detects a given number of errors?
*** adaptive cut-through
Which of the following is a Layer 2 broadcast address?
Refer to the graphic. Which point in the frame must be reached before it is forwarded by a switch that is using fast-forward mode?
Why does a switch have higher throughput compared to a bridge?
Switching occurs in software.
*** Switching occurs in hardware.
Switches create virtual circuits.
Switches segment LANs.
What is the potential throughput of a 10 Mbps Ethernet connection operating in full-duplex mode? (Choose two.)
10 Mbps total
*** 20 Mbps total
5 Mbps TX and 5 Mbps RX
*** 10 Mbps TX and 10 Mbps RX
40 to 60 percent on TX and RX
An Ethernet switch has developed the MAC address table shown at the top of the graphic. What action will the switch take when it receives the frame shown at the bottom of the graphic?
forward the frame out all interfaces
forward the frame out all interfaces except Interface3
discard the frame
*** forward the frame out Interface1
forward the frame out Interface2
forward the frame out Interface3
Which of the following are true regarding the addition of switches to a network? (Choose two.)
*** They increase the number of collision domains.
They decrease the number of collision domains.
They increase the number of broadcast domains.
They decrease the number of broadcast domains.
*** They increase the amount of bandwidth available to users.
They decrease the amount of bandwidth available to users.
What is designed to prevent multiple devices on an Ethernet network from transmitting at the same time?
*** CSMA/CD access method
token access method
Refer to the graphic. Which point must be reached before a frame is forwarded when the switch is using store-and-forward mode?
