Which Category of cable is the minimum required for 100BaseT Networking?
Cat 5 Cable can transmit data up to 100Mbps,which is the maximum speed of 100BaseT
What Common household connector does an RJ-45 connector most resemble?
An RJ-45 connector is essentially a wider version of the RJ-11,the common household telephone connector.
Which type of cable would be used for a 10Base2 (Thinnet) Ethernet network?
RG-58 is 50ohm cable designed for use with 10base2 ethernet. RG-59 is for television signals,RG-6 is for Satellites and RG-8 is for 10Base5 ethernet.
Which type of cable has either an ST or SC connector?
ST and SC are two types of Fiber Optic cable connectors.
in which type of network are all computers equal participants?
A (Peer-To-Peer network) does not have any computers set aside to be servers;all are equal.
Which physical topology connects all nodes to a hub?
A (Star)consists of several nodes that all connect to a central hub.
Which type of server dynamically assigns IP addresses to network nodes?
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server dynamically assigns IP addresses.
Which type of internet connectivity does not require a telephone?
Cable and two-way Satellite
Which type of network uses a multistation access unit (MAU)?
Token Ring networks connect all nodes with an MAU in the center. it is a physical star,although it is a logical ring.
What is TCP/IP
TCP/IP is the protocol used for the internet and most ethernet networks these days. It assigns eatch PC a unique IP address.
Speed of Cat 2 Cable?
Transmits data at speeds up to 4Mbps. It contains four twisted pair wires.
Speed of Cat 3 Cable?
Transmits data at speeds up to 10Mbps it contains four twisted pairs of wires with three twists per foot.
Speed of Cat 4 Cable?
Transmits speeds up to 16Mbps. It contains four twisted pairs of wires.
Speed of Cat 5 Cable?
Transmits data up to 100Mbps. It contains four twisted pairs of copper wire to give the most protection.
Speed of Cat 5e Cable?
Transmits data at speeds up to 1Gbps.It also contains four twisted pairs of copper wire,but they are physically seperated and contain more twists per foot than cat 5 to provide maximum interference protection.
Speed of Cat 6 Cable?
Transmits data at speed up to 2Gbps. It contains four twisted pairs of copper wire.
Where is Twisted-Pair cable most often found?
10/100BaseT Ethernet networks although other systems can use it.
Whats the choice of cable for most LAN?
Coaxial Cable
Speed of Fiber Optic cable?
From 100Mps up to 1Gbps
Length of a 10Base2 Cable?
Ethernet specification for thin coaxial cable, transmits signals at 10 Mbps (megabits per second) with a distance limit of 185 meters per segment.
Distance of 10Base5 Cable?
Ethernet specification for thick coaxial cable, transmits signals at 10 Mbps (megabits per second) with a distance limit of 500 meters per segment.
Distance of a 10baseT Cable?
Ethernet specification for unshielded twisted pair cable (category 3, 4, or 5), transmits signals at 10 Mbps (megabits per second) with a distance limit of 100 meters per segment.
Distance of 100BaseT Cable?
Ethernet specification for unshielded twisted pair cabling that is used to transmit data at 100 Mbps (megabits per second) with a distance limit of 100 meters per segment.
Disadvantages of a peer-to-peer network?
* Decentralized - No central repository for files and applications.
* Security - Does not provide the security available on a client/server network.
Disadvantages of a client/server network?
* Expense - Requires initial investment in dedicated server.
* Maintenance - Large networks will require a staff to ensure efficient operation.
* Dependence - When server goes down, operations will cease across the network.
Whats a Client/Server Network?
A Network that has one or more computers dedicated for use as a server. Typically has 10 or more Clients.
What does a Repeater Do?
Allow a cabling system to extend beyond its maximum allowed length by amplifying the network voltages so they travel farther.
