    cyclic redundancy check
  3. what does FCS stand for
    frame check sequence
  4. what does pps stand for
    packet per second
  5. what does ASIC stand for
    application specific integrated circuits
  6. what are the two basic types of layer 3 switching
    • packet-by-packet routing
    • flow-based packet routing
  7. what is used in layer 3 switches, just like routers, to populate these layer 3 routing tables
    dynamic routing protocol
  8. what four changes in network topologies cause routing tables to automatically adjust themselves
    • link failures
    • device failures
    • additions to the network
    • deletions from the network
  9. what does PIM stand for
    protocol independent multicast
  10. what operates independent of the unicast routing protocols
  11. what is packet-by-packet routing
    Packet-by-Packet Routing is a high performance implementation of standard routing functions.
  12. what does flow-based routing
    Flow-based Routing is a proprietary implementation that relies on short-cutting the router function when forwarding packets over the network.
  13. what is the multi layer switch protocol of choice
    is the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM).

    enhanced interior gateway routing protocol
  15. what term is used by Cisco to describe the category of routing protocols in which EIGRP resides
    balanced hybrid
  16. what multicast address is used by EIGRP
  17. how often are EIGRP hello packets sent across ethernet
    • multicast every 5 seconds
    • unicast every 60 seconds
  18. what are the three tables used by EIGRP
    • EIGRP neighbor table
    • EIGRP topology table
    • routing table
  19. what are the five components of the EIGRP composite metric
    • bandwidth
    • delay
    • load
    • reliability
    • MTU
  20. what two components are used by default in the EIGRP composite metric
    • bandwidth
    • delay
  21. what is the name of an EIGRP best or "primary" route
    • successor
    • the routes with the lowest metric becomes the best or "primary" route and added to the routing table

    spans more than 15 hops (15 routers)
  33. what is area border router ABR
    The Area Border Router (ABR) maintains topology databases for every Area that an interface is connected to.
