Unformatted text preview: 3. What topology is most appropriate for the LANs and the WAN? What are their merits? The topology that I would use would be the star topology and make the hub be the main library. I would also include a partial mesh so that if the hub malfunctions the network will still be transferred. The star network is also easy for a system administrator to troubleshoot. 4. Explain the elements of the backbone. The backbone is made up of cable that the data uses to travel throughout the network. 5. What transmission medium is required for the LAN, UTP, or fiber? If it is UTP, what grade? What transmission media and devices are required to create a WAN? Traditionally UTP was the transmission medium but the latest transmission medium is fiber. Transmission media and devices to create a WAN would be twisted cable, hubs, switches, and routers. References www.technet.microsoft.com www.cisco.com...
