  • Subnet
  • Local Area Network (LAN)
  • Collision domain

36. What device provides emails to devices like laptops and desktop computers?

  • Server
  • Switch
  • Router
  • Hub

37. Fill in the blank: When data flows across a cable in both directions, this is known as_____ communication.

  • Cross talk
  • Duplex
  • Simplex
  • Ethernet

38. Which of these devices contains many network ports, but does no other work than being a container for cable endpoints?

  • Hub
  • Patch Panel
  • Router
  • Switch

39. What is used to determine when the communications channels are clear and when a device is free to transmit data?

  • Internet Protocol (IP)
  • Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
  • Ethernet
  • Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD)

40. You need to identify the manufacturer of a network interface. Where will you look for this information?

  • The last octet of a Media Access Control (MAC) address
  • The first three octets of a Media Access Control (MAC) address
  • The first octet of a Media Access Control (MAC) address

42. True or false: Fiber cables use pulses of light to represent the ones and zeros of data.

  • True
  • False

43. True or false: Most devices are purely a server or a client.

  • True
  • False

44. A Local Area Network (LAN) uses Category 6 cabling. An issue with a connection results in a network link degradation and only one device can communicate at a time, but information can still go in either direction. What is the connection operating at?
