In the next paragraphs will be an overview of the correct way to install, setup, and configure the popular Cisco brand of equipment that is meant to be used with the Ethernet standard networking. The popular Cisco switches offer and come equipped with 12-48 and sometimes even more, 10/100 or Gigabit Ethernet ports for routing network traffic to its intended location. Usually a category three, four, or five cable can be used to connect the switch to the workstation. If the switch being used does not have a hub or a switch uplink port, the use of a crossover cable is required for connecting the device to a different hub or switch (Regan, 2004). The network administrators can use the CLI knows as the command-line interface to set up the Cisco switches. In order for someone to access the CLI, the switch’s console port needs to be connected into a computer terminal with a RJ-45 rollover cable and the proper adapter.

    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.
