  • STP

8. What is a possible effect of improperly applying a connector to a network cable?

  • Data will be forwarded to the wrong node.
  • Data transmitted through that cable may experience signal loss.
  • An improper signaling method will be implemented for data transmitted on that cable.
  • The encoding method for data sent on that cable will change to compensate for the improper connection.

9. What are three measures of data transfer? (Choose three.)

  • STP

12. Which fiber connector supports full duplex Ethernet?

13. Which method of signal transmission uses radio waves to carry signals?

  • electrical
  • optical
  • wireless
  • acoustic

14. Which characteristics describe 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 has a maximum speed of 100 Mbps.
  • It is the most expensive type of LAN cabling.

15. Which of the following is a characteristic of single-mode fiber-optic cable?

  • generally uses LEDs as the light source
  • relatively larger core with multiple light paths
  • less expensive than multimode
  • generally uses lasers as the light source

16. What is considered a benefit of wireless as a media choice?

  • more host mobility
  • lower security risks
  • reduced susceptibility to interference
  • less impact of the surroundings on the effective coverage area

17. Compared with UTP cable, what extra characteristic of STP cable helps reduce the effects of interference?

  • the metal braiding in the shielding
  • the reflective cladding around core
  • the twisting of the wires in the cable
  • the insulating material in the outer jacket

18. 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

19. When is a rollover cable used in a network?

  • for connecting a host to a Fast Ethernet port on a switch
  • for connecting a router to another router
  • for connecting two routers through their AUX ports
  • for connecting to a switch through its console port

20. What is a purpose of the physical layer in data communication?

  • to wrap data packets into frames
  • to make sure that MAC addresses are unique in each frame
  • to control the access sequence of frames to the transmission media
  • to convert a frame into a series of signals to be transmitted on the local media

21. Which data communications standard provides broadband access in a wireless network?

  • GSM
  • Wi-Fi
  • WiMAX
  • Bluetooth

22. A customer installs a wireless access point at home in the closet next to the kitchen. The customer mentions that the wireless communication performance seems degraded when the cordless phone or the microwave oven is in use. What is the possible reason for this degradation?

  • The access point is close to walls.
  • The cordless phone joins the WLAN and shares the available bandwidth.
  • The wireless signal is in the same radio frequency range as the household devices are in.
  • The access point is on the same electrical circuit as the phone base unit and microwave oven are.
  • The surge of electricity when a microwave oven is in use disrupts the operation of the access point.

24. Which OSI layer is responsible for managing optical signals used for data communication?

  • presentation
  • data link
  • transport
  • physical

25. Which connector is used with twisted-pair cabling in an Ethernet LAN?
