Week 5 not graded answer key. Chap 6. 2. What are the distinguishing features of a LAN? The distinguishing features of a LAN are: a. the small confined area in which it operates b. very high speed transmissions c. LANs operate outside the government-regulated communication environment, because their circuits do not cross public thoroughfares (roads) and, therefore, do not require licensing or regulatory approvals to operate. 3. What are two reasons for developing LANs? There are two basic reasons for developing a LAN: information sharing and resource sharing. Information sharing refers to having users who access the same data files, exchange information via electronic mail, or search the Internet for information. The main benefit of information sharing is improved decision making, which makes it generally more important than resource sharing. Resource sharing refers to one computer sharing a hardware device (e.g., printer) or software package with other computers on the network, in order to save costs. 6. Discuss why it is important for organizations to enforce policies restricting use of employee- owned hardware and software and unauthorized copies of software. Organizations must have policies on employee-owned hardware and software and unauthorized software because: a. employee-owned software may contain viruses b. employee-owned hardware and software may encourage theft of the organization’s assets by thoughtless, dishonest, or disgruntled employees
