    CSMA/CD stands for Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    CSMA/CD stands for Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection. This is a protocol used in Ethernet networks to control access to the network medium. It allows multiple devices to share the same communication channel by sensing if the channel is idle before transmitting data. If two devices attempt to transmit data at the same time and a collision occurs, they both detect the collision and wait for a random amount of time before retransmitting. Therefore, the statement "CSMA/CD stands for Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection" is true.

    What are the characteristics of half-duplex?

    • A.

      Unidirectional data flow

    • B.

      Higher potential for collision

    • C.

      Hub connectivity

    • D.

      Point-to-Point only

    • E.

      Attached to dedicated switch port

    • F.

      Collision detect circuit disabled

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Unidirectional data flow
    B. Higher potential for collision
    C. Hub connectivity
    Explanation
    The characteristics of half-duplex include unidirectional data flow, which means that data can only flow in one direction at a time. This leads to a higher potential for collision, as multiple devices may try to transmit data simultaneously. Half-duplex is often associated with hub connectivity, where multiple devices are connected to a central hub. It is also typically used in point-to-point connections only, meaning it can only be connected to one other device at a time. Lastly, in half-duplex mode, the collision detect circuit is disabled, as collisions are expected to occur.

    What are the characteristics of full-duplex?

    • A.

      Unidirectional data flow

    • B.

      Higher potential for collision

    • C.

      Hub connectivity

    • D.

      Point-to-Point only

    • E.

      Attached to dedicated switch port

    • F.

      Collision detect circuit disabled

    Correct Answer(s)
    D. Point-to-Point only
    E. Attached to dedicated switch port
    F. Collision detect circuit disabled
    Explanation
    Full-duplex communication allows for simultaneous two-way data flow, meaning data can be transmitted and received at the same time. It requires a point-to-point connection, where only two devices are connected directly to each other, typically through a dedicated switch port. In full-duplex mode, the collision detect circuit is disabled because collisions cannot occur in this type of communication.

    If auto-negotiation fails because the attached device does not support it, the Catalyst switch defaults the switch port to half-duplex mode.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the auto-negotiation process between the Catalyst switch and the attached device fails, it means that they are unable to agree on the communication parameters such as speed and duplex mode. In such a case, the Catalyst switch will default the switch port to half-duplex mode. This means that the switch port will only be able to send or receive data at one time, reducing the overall bandwidth available for communication. Therefore, the given statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Half-duplex on one end and full-duplex on the other causes late collision errors at the half-duplex end.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When one end of a communication link is operating in half-duplex mode, it can only transmit or receive data at a time, while the other end is operating in full-duplex mode, allowing simultaneous transmission and reception. This combination can lead to late collision errors at the half-duplex end. Late collisions occur when a device detects a collision after it has started transmitting data, resulting in wasted time and potential data loss. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Switches use MAC addresses to direct network traffic to the appropriate port.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Switches use MAC addresses to direct network traffic to the appropriate port. This is because switches operate at the data link layer of the OSI model and use MAC addresses to identify and forward data packets to the correct destination. Each device connected to a switch has a unique MAC address, and the switch maintains a table that maps these addresses to the corresponding ports. When a data packet arrives at the switch, it examines the destination MAC address and forwards the packet only to the port associated with that address, ensuring efficient and accurate delivery of network traffic.

  • 10. 

    If a destination address is not in the table, the switch forwards the frame out all ports except the receiving port.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a destination address is not found in the table, it means that the switch does not have information about where to forward the frame. In this case, the switch will use a technique called flooding, where it forwards the frame out all ports except the one it received the frame on. This ensures that the frame reaches its intended destination, even if the switch is not aware of its location. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When two connected hosts want to communicate with each other, the switch uses the switching table to establish a connection between the ports. This provided maximum available bandwidth to both hosts, as if the network has only two hosts.

    Correct Answer
    microsegment
    Explanation
    Microsegmentation is a network design technique where a switch divides a network into smaller segments, allowing for better bandwidth utilization and improved network performance. In this scenario, the switch uses its switching table to establish a direct connection between the ports of the two connected hosts, effectively creating a microsegment. This ensures that the maximum available bandwidth is dedicated to the communication between these two hosts, simulating a network with only two hosts and minimizing congestion or interference from other devices on the network.

    Only Layer 3 devices or a VLAN form separate broadcast domains.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because Layer 3 devices, such as routers, can separate broadcast domains by using IP addresses to route traffic between different networks. Additionally, VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks) can also create separate broadcast domains by logically dividing a single physical network into multiple virtual networks. Both Layer 3 devices and VLANs help to reduce network congestion and improve network performance by limiting the broadcast traffic to specific areas.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A collection of interconnected switches.

    Correct Answer
    broadcast domain
    Explanation
    A broadcast domain refers to a network segment where all devices can receive broadcast messages sent by any other device within that same segment. In this context, a collection of interconnected switches can create a broadcast domain. When switches are interconnected, they allow broadcast messages to be forwarded across the network, enabling devices connected to different switches to receive these broadcast messages. Therefore, the given answer of "broadcast domain" is a suitable explanation for a collection of interconnected switches.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    This means that LANs are segmented into a number of smaller collision and broadcast domains using routers and switches.

    Correct Answer
    lan segmentation
    Explanation
    LAN segmentation refers to the process of dividing a LAN (Local Area Network) into smaller collision and broadcast domains using routers and switches. This is done to improve network performance, security, and manageability. By segmenting the LAN, network traffic is isolated, reducing collisions and improving overall network efficiency. Routers and switches are used to create these segments, allowing for separate broadcast domains and controlling the flow of data between them. This helps to enhance network performance and ensure that data is delivered only to the intended recipients.

    Methods switches use to forward Ethernet frames.

    • A.

      Store-and-forward

    • B.

      Cut-through

    • C.

      Straight-through

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Store-and-forward
    B. Cut-through
    Explanation
    Store-and-forward and cut-through are two methods that switches use to forward Ethernet frames.

    Store-and-forward is a method where the switch receives the entire Ethernet frame before forwarding it. It checks the frame for errors and then forwards it to the appropriate destination. This method ensures that the frame is error-free before forwarding it, but it introduces some latency as the switch needs to wait for the entire frame to be received.

    Cut-through, on the other hand, is a method where the switch starts forwarding the frame as soon as it receives the destination MAC address. It does not wait for the entire frame to be received or check for errors. This method reduces latency but may forward frames with errors.

    Straight-through is not a method used by switches to forward Ethernet frames.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Store-and forward is the only method used on current Cisco Catalyst switches.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Store-and-forward is a method used on current Cisco Catalyst switches. This method involves receiving the entire data frame before forwarding it to the destination, allowing the switch to perform error checking and ensure data integrity. This method is commonly used to handle collisions and errors in the network, making it an essential feature of Cisco Catalyst switches. Therefore, the given statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Any corrupt frames are still forwarded and consume network bandwidth in cut-through method.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the cut-through method of forwarding frames in a network, any corrupt frames are still forwarded to their destination. This means that even if a frame is damaged or contains errors, it will still be transmitted across the network, consuming bandwidth. This can be inefficient as it can potentially lead to the transmission of corrupted data, which may need to be retransmitted later. Therefore, the statement is true.

    In symmetric switching, all ports have the same bandwidth.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In symmetric switching, all ports have the same bandwidth. This means that each port on the switch has an equal amount of bandwidth available for data transmission. This allows for equal distribution of network traffic and prevents any one port from becoming a bottleneck. Symmetric switching is commonly used in Ethernet networks to ensure fair and efficient data transfer between devices.

  • 21. 

    In asymmetric switching, more bandwidth can be assigned to a server to prevent bottlenecks.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In asymmetric switching, more bandwidth can be assigned to a server to prevent bottlenecks. This means that the network can allocate a higher amount of data transmission capacity to a specific server, allowing it to handle more traffic and reducing the chances of congestion or bottlenecks. This can be particularly useful for servers that require a higher bandwidth due to their criticality or high demand. By assigning more bandwidth to these servers, the network can ensure smoother and more efficient data transmission.

    In memory buffering, switch analyzes some or all of a packet before it forwards it to the destination host based on the forwarding method.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In memory buffering, the switch examines the content of a packet before sending it to the intended recipient based on the forwarding method. This allows the switch to make decisions about how to handle the packet, such as determining the appropriate output port or applying quality of service policies. By analyzing the packet in memory before forwarding, the switch can optimize the network's performance and ensure efficient delivery of data. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately describes the concept of memory buffering in switches.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    In port-based memory buffering, frames are stored in queues that are linked to specific incoming and outgoing ports.

    • A.

      True

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    MAC Adress that is learned from the frames received on each port.

    Correct Answer(s)
    dynamic mac adress
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "dynamic MAC address." A dynamic MAC address is learned from the frames received on each port. This means that the switch or network device is actively monitoring the network and updating its MAC address table based on the MAC addresses it detects in the incoming frames. Dynamic MAC addresses are temporary and can change as devices connect and disconnect from the network.

  • 30. 

    The process where dynamic MAC Address are removed from the table.

    Correct Answer(s)
    aging
    Explanation
    Aging refers to the process of removing dynamic MAC addresses from the table. In a network, MAC addresses are stored in a MAC address table to facilitate communication between devices. However, as devices are added or removed from the network, MAC addresses may become outdated or no longer in use. To ensure the table remains accurate and efficient, aging is performed to remove these unused MAC addresses. This helps free up space in the table and allows for better management of network resources.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Default interval for aging Dynamic MAC Address.

    Correct Answer(s)
    300 seconds
    300 secs
    Explanation
    The default interval for aging Dynamic MAC Address is 300 seconds or 300 secs. This means that the MAC addresses of devices connected to the network will be considered valid for 300 seconds before they are removed from the MAC address table. After this time period, if the device has not sent any traffic, its MAC address will be aged out and removed from the table.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    MAC Address specifically assigned by the network administrator and are not aged out.

    Correct Answer(s)

This allows them to take proactive measures to strengthen their network security and protect sensitive information.

    Additionally, network penetration testing helps in planning to avoid performance impacts. During the testing process, the impact on network performance can be assessed, and measures can be taken to minimize any potential disruptions. This ensures that the testing does not negatively affect the normal functioning of the network and allows organizations to maintain smooth operations while addressing security vulnerabilities.
