10. What is the purpose of the Cisco Enterprise Architecture?

  • remove the three-layer hierarchical model and use a flat network approach
  • divide the network into functional components while still maintaining the concept of Core, Distribution, and Access Layers
  • provide services and functionality to the core layer by grouping various components into a single
  • component located in the access layer
  • reduce overall network traffic by grouping server farms, the management server, corporate intranet, and  e-commerce routers in the same layer

11. Which two solutions would an enterprise IT department use to facilitate secure intranet access for remote workers? (Choose two.)

  • VPN
  • NAT
  • user authentication
  • client firewall software
  • packet sniffing

12. Which statement describes the difference between an enterprise WAN and an enterprise extranet?

  • An enterprise WAN is designed to interconnect local LANs, while an enterprise extranet is designed to interconnect remote branch offices.
  • An enterprise WAN is designed to interconnect branch offices, while an enterprise extranet is designed to give access to external business partners.
  • An enterprise WAN is designed to provide remote access for its teleworkers, while an enterprise extranet is designed to provide Internet connectivity for the enterprise.
  • An enterprise WAN is designed to provide Internet connectivity for the enterprise, while an enterprise extranet is designed to provide remote access to the enterprise network for teleworkers.

13. Why would a network administrator want to limit the size of failure domains when designing a network?

  • reduces the effect of Ethernet collisions
  • reduces the impact of a key device or service failure
  • reduces the impact of Internet congestion on critical traffic
  • reduces the impact of blocking broadcast packets at the edge of the local network

14. What is the main purpose of the Access Layer in a hierarchically designed network?

  • performs routing and packet manipulation
  • supplies redundancy and failover protection
  • provides a high-speed, low-latency backbone
  • serves as a network connection point for end-user devices

15. Which three functions are performed at the Distribution Layer of the hierarchical network model? (Choose three.)

  • forwards traffic that is destined for other networks
  • isolates network problems to prevent them from affecting the Core Layer
  • allows end users to access the local network
  • provides a connection point for separate local networks
  • transports large amounts of data between different geographic sites
  • forwards traffic to other hosts on the same logical network

Explanation: The primary function of the distribution layer is to aggregate access layer switches in a given building or campus. The distribution layer provides a boundary between the Layer 2 domain of the access layer and the Layer 3 domain of the core. On the Layer 2 side, it creates a boundary for Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), limiting propagation of Layer 2 faults. On the Layer 3 side, it provides a logical point to summarize IP routing information when it enters the core Layer. The summarization reduces IP route tables for easier troubleshooting and reduces protocol overhead for faster recovery from failures.

16. What is a benefit of having an extranet?

  • It provides web-like access to company information for employees only.
  • It limits access to corporate information to secure VPN or remote access connections only.
  • It allows customers and partners to access company information by connecting to a public web server.
  • It allows suppliers and contractors to access confidential internal information using controlled external connections.

17. What are two important characteristics or functions of devices at the Enterprise Edge? (Choose two.)

  • providing Internet, telephone, and WAN services to the enterprise network
  • providing a connection point for end-user devices to the enterprise network
  • providing high-speed backbone connectivity with redundant connections
  • providing intrusion detection and intrusion prevention to protect the network against malicious activity
  • providing packet inspection to determine if incoming packets should be allowed on the enterprise network

18. Why is TCP the preferred Layer 4 protocol for transmitting data files?

  • TCP is more reliable than UDP because it requires lost packets to be retransmitted.
  • TCP requires less processing by the source and destination hosts than UDP.
  • UDP introduces delays that degrade the quality of the data applications.
  • TCP ensures fast delivery because it does not require sequencing or acknowlegements.

19. The ABC Corporation implements the network for its new headquarters using the Cisco Enterprise Architecture. The network administrator wants to filter the traffic from and to the outside world. Where should the administrator deploy a firewall device?

  • server farm
  • enterprise edge
  • enterprise campus
  • service provider edge

20. Which two statements are reasons why UDP is used for voice and video traffic instead of TCP? (Choose two.)

  • TCP requires all data packets to be delivered for the data to be usable.
  • The acknowledgment process of TCP introduces delays that break the streams of data.
  • UDP does not have mechanisms for retransmitting lost packets.
  • UDP tolerates delays and compensates for them.
  • TCP is a connectionless protocol that provides end-to-end reliability.
  • UDP is a connection-oriented protocol that provides end-to-end reliability.

21. What are two important guidelines when using packet sniffers to determine traffic flow patterns? (Choose two.)

  • Capture only traffic from a single application at a time.
  • Perform the capture on several different network segments.
  • Create a baseline capture during a low or non-utilization period.
  • Relocate highly active servers before attempting the capture.
  • Capture traffic during peak utilization times.

22. Which three items can be discovered by using a packet sniffer application? (Choose three.)

  • network transmission speed
  • source IP address
  • Ethernet frame type
  • duplex operational status
  • near-end crosstalk (NEXT) level
  • TCP sequence number

23. Which protocol and process could be implemented on a network to ensure that a telecommuter can attend a training presentation via the use of VoIP and still experience uninterrupted data streams and quality conversations?

  • TCP and QoS
  • UDP and QoS
  • TCP and queuing
  • UDP and VPN
  • TCP and VPN

24. What are two benefits of controlling the flow of traffic in an enterprise network? (Choose two.)

  • security
  • smaller failure domains
  • more reliable transaction processing
  • bandwidth optimization
  • local control of network services

25. What are two benefits to an employee of teleworking? (Choose two.)

  • reduced commuting costs
