  • the type of traffic that is crossing the network
  • the latency that is created by the number of network devices that the data is crossing
  • the bandwidth of the WAN connection to the Internet
  • the reliability of the gigabit Ethernet infrastructure of the backbone

7. What are two characteristics of fiber-optic cable? (Choose two.)

  • It is not affected by EMI or RFI.
  • Each pair of cables is wrapped in metallic foil.
  • It combines the technique of cancellation, shielding, and twisting to protect data.
  • It typically contains 4 pairs of fiber-optic wires.
  • It is more expensive than UTP cabling is.

8. What is a primary role of the Physical layer in transmitting data on the network?

  • create the signals that represent the bits in each frame on to the media
  • provide physical addressing to the devices
  • determine the path packets take through the network
  • control data access to the media
Explanation: The OSI physical layer provides the means to transport the bits that make up a frame across the network media. This layer accepts a complete frame from the data link layer and encodes it as a series of signals that are transmitted to the local media.

9. With the use of unshielded twisted-pair copper wire in a network, what causes crosstalk within the cable pairs?

  • the magnetic field around the adjacent pairs of wire
  • the use of braided wire to shield the adjacent wire pairs
  • the reflection of the electrical wave back from the far end of the cable
  • the collision caused by two nodes trying to use the media simultaneously
Explanation: Crosstalk is a type of noise, or interference that occurs when signal transmission on one wire interferes with another wire. When current flows through a wire a magnetic field is produced. The produced magnetic field will interface the signal carried in the adjacent wire.

10. Refer to the graphic. What type of cabling is shown?

  • STP
  • UTP
  • coax
  • fiber
Explanation: Network cabling include different types of cables:

  • UTP cable consists of four pairs of color-coded wires that have been twisted together and then encased in a flexible plastic sheath.
  • STP cable uses four pairs of wires, each wrapped in a foil shield, which are then wrapped in an overall metallic braid or foil.
  • Coaxial cable uses a copper conductor and a layer of flexible plastic insulation surrounds the copper conductor.
  • Fiber cable is a flexible, extremely thin, transparent strand of glass surrounded by plastic insulation.

11. In addition to the cable length, what two factors could interfere with the communication carried over UTP cables? (Choose two.)

  • crosstalk
  • bandwidth
  • size of the network
  • signal modulation technique
  • electromagnetic interference
Explanation: Copper media is widely used in network communications. However, copper media is limited by distance and signal interference. Data is transmitted on copper cables as electrical pulses. The electrical pulses are susceptible to interference from two sources:

  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI) – EMI and RFI signals can distort and corrupt the data signals being carried by copper media.
  • Crosstalk – Crosstalk is a disturbance caused by the electric or magnetic fields of a signal on one wire interfering with the signal in an adjacent wire.

12. Refer to the graphic. What type of cabling is shown?

  • STP
  • UTP
  • coax
  • fiber

13. Which two devices commonly affect wireless networks? (Choose two.)

  • Blu-ray players
  • home theaters
  • cordless phones
  • microwaves
  • incandescent light bulbs
  • external hard drives
Explanation: Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) is the interference that is caused by radio transmitters and other devices that are transmitting in the same frequency.

14. Which two statements describe the services provided by the data link layer? (Choose two.)

  • It defines the end-to-end delivery addressing scheme.
  • It maintains the path between the source and destination devices during the data transmission.
  • It manages the access of frames to the network media.
  • It provides reliable delivery through link establishment and flow control.
  • It ensures that application data will be transmitted according to the prioritization.
  • It packages various Layer 3 PDUs into a frame format that is compatible with the network interface.
Explanation: The data link layer is divided into two sub layers, namely Logical Link Control (LLC) and Media Access Control (MAC). LLC forms a frame from the network layer PDU into a format that conforms to the requirements of the network interface and media. A network layer PDU might be for IPv4 or IPv6. The MAC sub layer defines the media access processes performed by the hardware. It manages the frame access to the network media according to the physical signaling requirements (copper cable, fiber optic, wireless, etc.)

15. What is the function of the CRC value that is found in the FCS field of a frame?

  • to verify the integrity of the received frame
  • to verify the physical address in the frame
  • to verify the logical address in the frame
  • to compute the checksum header for the data field in the frame

16. What is contained in the trailer of a data-link frame?

  • logical address
  • physical address
  • data
  • error detection

17. Which statement describes a characteristic of the frame header fields of the data link layer?

  • They all include the flow control and logical connection fields.
  • Ethernet frame header fields contain Layer 3 source and destination addresses.
  • They vary depending on protocols.
  • They include information on user applications.
Explanation: All data link layer protocols encapsulate the Layer 3 PDU within the data field of the frame. However, the structure of the frame and the fields that are contained in the header vary according to the protocol. Different data link layer protocols may use different fields, like priority/quality of service, logical connection control, physical link control, flow control, and congestion control.

18. A network team is comparing physical WAN topologies for connecting remote sites to a headquarters building. Which topology provides high availability and connects some, but not all, remote sites?

  • mesh
  • partial mesh
  • hub and spoke
  • point-to-point
Explanation: Partial mesh topologies provide high availability by interconnecting multiple remote sites, but do not require a connection between all remote sites. A mesh topology requires point-to-point links with every system being connected to every other system. A point-to-point topology is where each device is connected to one other device. A hub and spoke uses a central device in a star topology that connects to other point-to-point devices.

19. Which two fields or features does Ethernet examine to determine if a received frame is passed to the data link layer or discarded by the NIC? (Choose two.)

  • auto-MDIX
  • CEF
  • Frame Check Sequence
  • minimum frame size
  • source MAC address

20. Which media communication type does not require media arbitration in the data link layer?

  • deterministic
  • half-duplex
  • full-duplex
  • controlled access
Explanation: Half-duplex communication occurs when both devices can both transmit and receive on the medium but cannot do so simultaneously. Full-duplex communication occurs when both devices can transmit and receive on the medium at the same time and therefore does not require media arbitration. Half-duplex communication is typically contention-based, whereas controlled (deterministic) access is applied in technologies where devices take turns to access the medium.

21. Which statement describes an extended star topology?

  • End devices connect to a central intermediate device, which in turn connects to other central intermediate devices.
  • End devices are connected together by a bus and each bus connects to a central intermediate device.
  • Each end system is connected to its respective neighbor via an intermediate device.
  • All end and intermediate devices are connected in a chain to each other.
Explanation: In an extended star topology, central intermediate devices interconnect other star topologies.

22. What is a characteristic of the LLC sublayer?

  • It provides the logical addressing required that identifies the device.
  • It provides delimitation of data according to the physical signaling requirements of the medium.
  • It places information in the frame allowing multiple Layer 3 protocols to use the same network interface and media.
  • It defines software processes that provide services to the physical layer.

23. What are three ways that media access control is used in networking? (Choose three.)

  • Ethernet utilizes CSMA/CD.
  • Media access control provides placement of data frames onto the media.
  • Contention-based access is also known as deterministic.
  • 802.11 utilizes CSMA/CD.
  • Data link layer protocols define the rules for access to different media.
  • Networks with controlled access have reduced performance due to data collisions.

24. During the encapsulation process, what occurs at the data link layer for a PC connected to an Ethernet network?

  • An IP address is added.
  • The logical address is added.
  • The physical address is added.
  • The process port number is added.
Explanation: The Ethernet frame includes the source and destination physical address. The trailer includes a CRC value in the Frame Check Sequence field to allow the receiving device to determine if the frame has been changed (has errors) during the transmission.

25. What three items are contained in an Ethernet header and trailer? (Choose three.)

  • source IP address
  • source MAC address
  • destination IP address
  • destination MAC address
  • error-checking information
Explanation: Layer 2 headers contain the following:

  • Frame start and stop indicator flags at the beginning and end of a frame
  • Addressing – for Ethernet networks this part of the header contains source and destination MAC addresses
  • Type field to indicate what Layer 3 protocol is being used
  • Error detection to determine if the frame arrived without error

26. What type of communication rule would best describe CSMA/CD?

  • access method
  • flow control
  • message encapsulation
  • message encoding
Explanation: Carrier sense multiple access collision detection (CSMA/CD) is the access method used with Ethernet. The access method rule of communication dictates how a network device is able to place a signal on the carrier. CSMA/CD dictates those rules on an Ethernet network and CSMA/CA dictates those rules on an 802.11 wireless LAN.

27. Which three basic parts are common to all frame types supported by the data link layer? (Choose three.)

  • header
  • type field
  • MTU size
  • data
  • trailer
  • CRC value
Explanation: The data link protocol is responsible for NIC-to-NIC communications within the same network. Although there are many different data link layer protocols that describe data link layer frames, each frame type has three basic parts:

  • Header
  • Data
  • Trailer

28. Which statement is true about the CSMA/CD access method that is used in Ethernet?

  • When a device hears a carrier signal and transmits, a collision cannot occur.
  • A jamming signal causes only devices that caused the collision to execute a backoff algorithm.
  • All network devices must listen before transmitting.
  • Devices involved in a collision get priority to transmit after the backoff period.

29. What is the auto-MDIX feature on a switch?

  • the automatic configuration of an interface for 10/100/1000 Mb/s operation
  • the automatic configuration of an interface for a straight-through or a crossover Ethernet cable connection
  • the automatic configuration of full-duplex operation over a single Ethernet copper or optical cable
  • the ability to turn a switch interface on or off accordingly if an active connection is detected
Explanation: The auto-MDIX enables a switch to use a crossover or a straight-through Ethernet cable to connect to a device regardless of the device on the other end of the connection.

30. Refer to the exhibit. What is the destination MAC address of the Ethernet frame as it leaves the web server if the final destination is PC1?

  • 00-60-2F-3A-07-AA
  • 00-60-2F-3A-07-BB
  • 00-60-2F-3A-07-CC
  • 00-60-2F-3A-07-DD
Explanation: The destination MAC address is used for local delivery of Ethernet frames. The MAC (Layer 2) address changes at each network segment along the path. As the frame leaves the web server, it will be delivered by using the MAC address of the default gateway.

31. A Layer 2 switch is used to switch incoming frames from a 1000BASE-T port to a port connected to a 100Base-T network. Which method of memory buffering would work best for this task?

  • port-based buffering
  • level 1 cache buffering
  • shared memory buffering
  • fixed configuration buffering

32. What are two examples of the cut-through switching method? (Choose two.)

  • store-and-forward switching
  • fast-forward switching
  • CRC switching
  • fragment-free switching
  • QOS switching

33. Which frame forwarding method receives the entire frame and performs a CRC check to detect errors before forwarding the frame?

  • cut-through switching
  • store-and-forward switching
  • fragment-free switching
  • fast-forward switching
Explanation: Fast-forward and fragment-free switching are variations of cut-through switching, which begins to forward the frame before the entire frame is received.

34. What is the purpose of the FCS field in a frame?

  • to obtain the MAC address of the sending node
  • to verify the logical address of the sending node
  • to compute the CRC header for the data field
  • to determine if errors occurred in the transmission and reception
Explanation: The FCS field in a frame is used to detect any errors in the transmission and receipt of a frame. This is done by comparing the CRC value within the frame against a computed CRC value of the frame. If the two values do not match, then the frame is discarded.

35. Which switching method has the lowest level of latency?

  • cut-through
  • store-and-forward
  • fragment-free
  • fast-forward
Explanation: Fast-forward switching begins to forward a frame after reading the destination MAC address, resulting in the lowest latency. Fragment-free reads the first 64 bytes before forwarding. Store-and-forward has the highest latency because it reads the entire frame before beginning to forward it. Both fragment-free and fast-forward are types of cut-through switching.

36. A network administrator is connecting two modern switches using a straight-through cable. The switches are new and have never been configured. Which three statements are correct about the final result of the connection? (Choose three.)

  • The link between the switches will work at the fastest speed that is supported by both switches.
  • The link between switches will work as full-duplex.
  • If both switches support different speeds, they will each work at their own fastest speed.
  • The auto-MDIX feature will configure the interfaces eliminating the need for a crossover cable.
  • The connection will not be possible unless the administrator changes the cable to a crossover cable.
  • The duplex capability has to be manually configured because it cannot be negotiated.
Explanation: Modern switches can negotiate to work in full-duplex mode if both switches are capable. They will negotiate to work using the fastest possible speed and the auto-MDIX feature is enabled by default, so a cable change is not needed.

37. Which advantage does the store-and-forward switching method have compared with the cut-through switching method?

  • collision detecting
  • frame error checking
  • faster frame forwarding
  • frame forwarding using IPv4 Layer 3 and 4 information
Explanation: A switch using the store-and-forward switching method performs an error check on an incoming frame by comparing the FCS value against its own FCS calculations after the entire frame is received. In comparison, a switch using the cut-through switching method makes quick forwarding decisions and starts the forwarding process without waiting for the entire frame to be received. Thus a switch using cut-through switching may send invalid frames to the network. The performance of store-and-forward switching is slower compared to cut-through switching performance. Collision detection is monitored by the sending device. Store-and-forward switching does not use IPv4 Layer 3 and 4 information for its forwarding decisions.

38. When the store-and-forward method of switching is in use, what part of the Ethernet frame is used to perform an error check?

  • CRC in the trailer
  • source MAC address in the header
  • destination MAC address in the header
  • protocol type in the header

39. Which switching method uses the CRC value in a frame?

  • cut-through
  • fast-forward
  • fragment-free
  • store-and-forward
Explanation: When the store-and-forward switching method is used, the switch receives the complete frame before forwarding it on to the destination. The cyclic redundancy check (CRC) part of the trailer is used to determine if the frame has been modified during transit.​​ In contrast, a cut-through switch forwards the frame once the destination Layer 2 address is read. Two types of cut-through switching methods are fast-forward and fragment-free.

40. What are two actions performed by a Cisco switch? (Choose two.)

  • building a routing table that is based on the first IP address in the frame header
  • using the source MAC addresses of frames to build and maintain a MAC address table
  • forwarding frames with unknown destination IP addresses to the default gateway
  • utilizing the MAC address table to forward frames via the destination MAC address
  • examining the destination MAC address to add new entries to the MAC address table
Explanation: Important actions that a switch performs are as follows:

  • When a frame comes in, the switch examines the Layer 2 source address to build and maintain the Layer 2 MAC address table.
  • It examines the Layer 2 destination address to determine how to forward the frame. When the destination address is in the MAC address table, then the frame is sent out a particular port. When the address is unknown, the frame is sent to all ports that have devices connected to that network.

41. Which two statements describe features or functions of the logical link control sublayer in Ethernet standards? (Choose two.)

  • Logical link control is implemented in software.
  • Logical link control is specified in the IEEE 802.3 standard.
  • The LLC sublayer adds a header and a trailer to the data.
  • The data link layer uses LLC to communicate with the upper layers of the protocol suite.
  • The LLC sublayer is responsible for the placement and retrieval of frames on and off the media.
Explanation: Logical link control is implemented in software and enables the data link layer to communicate with the upper layers of the protocol suite. Logical link control is specified in the IEEE 802.2 standard. IEEE 802.3 is a suite of standards that define the different Ethernet types. The MAC (Media Access Control) sublayer is responsible for the placement and retrieval of frames on and off the media. The MAC sublayer is also responsible for adding a header and a trailer to the network layer protocol data unit (PDU).

42. What is the auto-MDIX feature?

  • It enables a device to automatically configure an interface to use a straight-through or a crossover cable.
  • It enables a device to automatically configure the duplex settings of a segment.
  • It enables a device to automatically configure the speed of its interface.
  • It enables a switch to dynamically select the forwarding method.

43. What is one advantage of using the cut-through switching method instead of the store-and-forward switching method?

  • has a positive impact on bandwidth by dropping most of the invalid frames
  • makes a fast forwarding decision based on the source MAC address of the frame
  • has a lower latency appropriate for high-performance computing applications​
  • provides the flexibility to support any mix of Ethernet speeds
Explanation: Cut-through switching provides lower latency switching for high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Cut-through switching allows more invalid frames to cross the network than store-and-forward switching. The cut-through switching method can make a forwarding decision as soon as it looks up the destination MAC address of the frame.

44. Which is a multicast MAC address?

  • FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF
  • 5C-26-0A-4B-19-3E
  • 01-00-5E-00-00-03
  • 00-26-0F-4B-00-3E

45. Refer to the exhibit. What is wrong with the displayed termination?

  • The woven copper braid should not have been removed.
  • The wrong type of connector is being used.
  • The untwisted length of each wire is too long.
  • The wires are too thick for the connector that is used.
Explanation: When a cable to an RJ-45 connector is terminated, it is important to ensure that the untwisted wires are not too long and that the flexible plastic sheath surrounding the wires is crimped down and not the bare wires. None of the colored wires should be visible from the bottom of the jack.

46. Refer to the exhibit. The PC is connected to the console port of the switch. All the other connections are made through FastEthernet links. Which types of UTP cables can be used to connect the devices?​

  • 1 – rollover, 2 – crossover, 3 – straight-through
  • 1 – rollover, 2 – straight-through, 3 – crossover
  • 1 – crossover, 2 – straight-through, 3 – rollover
  • 1 – crossover, 2 – rollover, 3 – straight-through
Explanation: A straight-through cable is commonly used to interconnect a host to a switch and a switch to a router. A crossover cable is used to interconnect similar devices together like switch to a switch, a host to a host, or a router to a router. If a switch has the MDIX capability, a crossover could be used to connect the switch to the router; however, that option is not available. A rollover cable is used to connect to a router or switch console port.

47. Open the PT Activity. Perform the tasks in the activity instructions and then answer the question.
Which port does Switch0 use to send frames to the host with the IPv4 address 10.1.1.5?

  • Fa0/1
  • Fa0/5
  • Fa0/9
  • Fa0/11
Explanation: Issuing the command ipconfig /all from the PC0 command prompt displays the IPv4 address and MAC address. When the IPv4 address 10.1.1.5 is pinged from PC0, the switch stores the source MAC address (from PC0) along with the port to which PC0 is connected. When the destination reply is received, the switch takes the destination MAC address and compares to MAC addresses stored in the MAC address table. Issuing the show mac-address-table on the PC0 Terminal application displays two dynamic MAC address entries. The MAC address and port entry that does not belong to PC0 must be the MAC address and port of the destination with the IPv4 address 10.1.1.5.

48. What does the term “attenuation” mean in data communication?

  • loss of signal strength as distance increases
  • time for a signal to reach its destination
  • leakage of signals from one cable pair to another
  • strengthening of a signal by a networking device
Explanation: Data is transmitted on copper cables as electrical pulses. A detector in the network interface of a destination device must receive a signal that can be successfully decoded to match the signal sent. However, the farther the signal travels, the more it deteriorates. This is referred to as signal attenuation.

49. What makes fiber preferable to copper cabling for interconnecting buildings? (Choose three.)

  • greater distances per cable run
  • lower installation cost
  • limited susceptibility to EMI/RFI
  • durable connections
  • greater bandwidth potential
  • easily terminated
Explanation: Optical fiber cable transmits data over longer distances and at higher bandwidths than any other networking media. Unlike copper wires, fiber-optic cable can transmit signals with less attenuation and is completely immune to EMI and RFI.
