  • voice queues
  • voice carrier stream
  • voice services traffic

  • ternary content addressable memory (TCAM)
  • address resolution protocol (ARP) memory
  • Cisco Express Forwarding (CEF) memory

Explanation: CAM is used by ARP to store MAC and IPv4 address pairs. CEF uses a FIB.

  • prepare
  • plan
  • design
  • implement
  • operate
  • optimize

10. Which technology consistently increases CPU load on multilayer Catalyst switches?

  • quality of service (QoS)
  • access control lists (ACLs)
  • policy-based routing (PBR)
  • network address translation (NAT)

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

  • It replaces the three-layer hierarchical model with a flat network approach.
  • It provides an enterprise-wide system network architecture that helps protect, optimize, and grow the network infrastructure tha supports the business processes of a company.
  • It provides services and functionality to the core layer by grouping various components into a single component that is located the access layer.
  • It reduces overall network traffic by grouping server farms, the management server, corporate intranet, and e-commerce router the same layer.

12. A network designer must provide a rationale to a customer for a design that will move an enterprise from a flat network topology to a hierarchical network topology. Which two features of the hierarchical design make it the better choice? (Choose two.)

  • reduced cost
  • scalability
  • less equipment required
  • higher availability
  • lower bandwidth requirements

13. A user needs to access a file server that is located in another department. Which layer of the Cisco Hierarchical Network Model will process the traffic first?

  • access
  • core
  • distribution
  • control

14. What are the responsibilities of devices that are located at the core layer of the hierarchical design model? (Choose two.)

  • access list filtering
  • packet manipulation
  • high-speed backbone switching
  • interconnection of distribution layer devices
  • redundancy between the core devices only

15. Which family of Cisco switches supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)?

  • Catalyst 4948G
  • Catalyst 4500
  • Catalyst 6500
  • Nexus 5000

16. In its network design, a company lists this equipment:

  • Two Catalyst 4503 Layer 3 switches
  • One 5500 security appliance firewall
  • Two Catalyst 6509 switches
  • Two lightweight access points
  • Two Catalyst 2960 switches

Which two types of devices from the list would be appropriate to use at the access layer to provide end-user connectivity? (Choose two.)

  • Catalyst 4503 switches
  • Cisco 5500 security appliance firewall
  • Catalyst 6509 switches
  • lightweight access points
  • Catalyst 2960 switches
