Why are standards so important for NICs, connectors, and media? Use your textbook and Internet research to justify your answer.
Standards are put in place to make everything work together error free. Because Stability, Consistency, Minimization of packet errors.
The voltage for registering a bit of 1 on Ethernet can be as low as 2.5 volts or even 1 volt. Why is this so low when the capacity for transmitting electricity on the copper wire is so high? Use your textbook and Internet research to support your answer.
Because the voltage used to transmit data needs only be high enough for the receiver to detect it. Making the voltage higher would make the receiver electronics more difficult.
4.1.3…show more content… Using Figure 4- 1 and Table 4- 2 as an example, create the diagram and color coding for a crossover cable. Use your textbook and Internet research to compose your answer. Hint: The crossover cable is more complex than simply reversing the entire set of wires. You are wiring the input pins to the output pins and vice versa.
Briefly describe the layered construction of a coaxial cable from the inner core to the outer insulation. Use your textbook and Internet research to compose your answer.
Coaxial cable consists of a core of copper wire surrounded by insulation, a braided metal shielding, and an outer cover.
Based solely on the distance limitation of UTP cable, what should you guarantee about any network you plan for UTP cable? Use your textbook and Internet research to justify your answer.
100 meters & a signal repeater
What type of cable is necessary for each connection in Figure 4- 2: straight or crossover? You can assume that S1 and S2 do not have the ability to resolve crossovers ( called Auto- MDIX). Use your textbook and Internet research to compose your answer. They both need straight UTP
If all the connections in the network from Figure 4- 2 use UTP cable, will they all be able to communicate correctly? If not, which links will not function and what should be done to resolve the issue? Use
