10/16/2017 TestOut LabSim 1/2 6.1.3 Device Connection Facts Enterprise network switches need to be configured before they are implemented. Be aware that low-end switches available from many retail stores cannot be configured. These are called unmanaged switches . To implement an unmanaged switch, you simply plug it in to a power outlet and connect your network devices with UTP cables. While unmanaged switches are convenient and easy to implement, they lack many of the advanced management and security features available on managed switches . Some router and switch management tasks can be performed by using management utilities provided by your workstation operating system through a network connection. This is called in-band management , because it uses a standard network connection to perform the tasks. For example, tools such as Telnet or SSH provide in-band management. Using the same network connection for both data and management has several drawbacks: You must compete with normal network traffic for bandwidth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
