Unformatted text preview: I ndividual: L AN Topologies 11. Your network consists of four servers. Each server has three N ICs. Server A is connected t o servers B, C, and D. Server B is attached to C and D. Server C is attached to server D. No hub is used. All cabling is CAT 3 UTP crossover cables. What is your physical topology? a. Star b. Bus c. Ring d. Mesh I believe this to be a mesh mainly because all the servers are connected to one another. There is no hub used and Cat 3 UTP would be the cable for use in a small topology such as this. Also, the Cat 3 UTP cable is used in 80% of all LANs. Concerning the network interface cards (NIC), this allows the server to communicate with any computer on the network. I ndividual: L AN Topologies 12. Your network consists of a 24-port bridge, two servers, and 15 workstations. Each computer interfaces with the bridge using i ts own segment of CAT 5 twisted-pair cable, w hich is terminated at both ends with RJ-45 connectors. What type of physical topology do you have? a. Star b. Bus c. Ring d. Mesh I believe this to be a star topology because each of the 15 work station connects to a cent ral point (which would be the port bridge connected to the servers). The C at 5 cable handles standard networking. The RJ-45 connectors are in place because they are the norm when networking. Only 2 wi res in the connector car ry E thernet signals. One end of the cable is connected to the computer and the other e nd is connected to the port bridge. I ndividual: L AN Topologies 13. Your network’s physical topology is that of a star configuration. From t ime to t ime, each workstation will hold a packet called a token, during which t ime i t will t ransmit data and t hen pass the token along to the next workstation. What is the logical topology of your network? a. Star b. Bus c. Ring d. Mesh This would be a r ing topology because the token (data packet) w ill pass i t along until it finds the node to which it was addressed. I ndividual: L AN Topologies ...
