    Define UTP and explain the physical makeup and benefits/drawbacks of using it.

  • 5. 

    ________ supports up to 10 Mbit/s Ethernet or 4 Mbit/s Token Ring.

    • A.

      Cat3

    • B.

      Cat5

    • C.

      Cat5e

    • D.

      Cat6

    • E.

      Cat6a

    Correct Answer
    A. Cat3
    Explanation
    Cat3 is the correct answer because it is a type of Ethernet cable that supports up to 10 Mbit/s Ethernet or 4 Mbit/s Token Ring. Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6a cables are capable of higher speeds and are not limited to the lower speeds supported by Cat3.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ________ supports up to 100 Mbit/s Ethernet.

    • A.

      Cat3

    • B.

      Cat5

    • C.

      Cat5e

    • D.

      Cat6

    • E.

      Cat6a

    Correct Answer
    B. Cat5
    Explanation
    Cat5 is the correct answer because it supports up to 100 Mbit/s Ethernet. Cat3 supports up to 10 Mbit/s Ethernet, Cat5e supports up to 1000 Mbit/s Ethernet, Cat6 supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet, and Cat6a supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet with improved performance and bandwidth.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    ________ supports up to 1 Gbit/s Ethernet.

    • A.

      Cat3

    • B.

      Cat5

    • C.

      Cat5e

    • D.

      Cat6

    • E.

      Cat6a

    Correct Answer
    C. Cat5e
    Explanation
    Cat5e supports up to 1 Gbit/s Ethernet. Cat3 and Cat5 have lower data transfer rates, while Cat6 and Cat6a have higher data transfer rates. Therefore, Cat5e is the correct answer as it specifically supports up to 1 Gbit/s Ethernet.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    ________ supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet up to 55 meters.

    • A.

      Cat3

    • B.

      Cat5

    • C.

      Cat5e

    • D.

      Cat6

    • E.

      Cat6a

    Correct Answer
    D. Cat6
    Explanation
    Cat6 supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet up to 55 meters. Cat6 cables are designed to provide higher bandwidth and faster data transmission compared to previous categories such as Cat3, Cat5, and Cat5e. The improved specifications of Cat6 cables allow for better signal quality and reduced crosstalk, enabling higher data transfer rates over longer distances. Therefore, Cat6 is the correct answer as it meets the given requirements.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    ________ supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet up to 100 meters.

    • A.

      Cat3

    • B.

      Cat5

    • C.

      Cat5e

    • D.

      Cat6

    • E.

      Cat6a

    Correct Answer
    E. Cat6a
    Explanation
    Cat6a is the correct answer because it supports up to 10 Gbit/s Ethernet up to 100 meters. Cat3, Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6 do not support speeds up to 10 Gbit/s. Cat6a is an enhanced version of Cat6, specifically designed to support higher data transfer rates and longer distances. It is capable of handling 10 Gbit/s Ethernet speeds over a distance of 100 meters, making it suitable for high-speed networking applications.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What is plenum and why is it important so far as networking is concerned?

  • 11. 

    What is the riser and why is it important so far as networking is concerned?

  • 12. 

    What are PVC and FEP and what are they usually referring to so far as networking is concerned?

  • 13. 

    Modems and direct device connections sometimes use a type of interface that transmit one bit at a time.  This interface can directly network devices together via a null-modem connection.  This interface can also be used to configure network devices.What is it?

    Correct Answer
    serial
    Serial
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "serial". Serial interfaces are commonly used in modems and direct device connections to transmit data one bit at a time. This type of interface allows devices to be directly networked together via a null-modem connection and can also be used to configure network devices.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    One type of cable can either be comprised of glass or plastic; features high bandwidths, long distance traversal, and low interference.  What is it?

  • 15. 

    Explain what is being portrayed in this picture and the differences between the two types of transmission.
