what is an enterprise network
when all networks of an organization, regardless of their location, are interconnected and interoperable
which enterprise networking WAN solution would be best suited for two remote sites that only need to connect once a day for small, back-end database uploads
PPP over ISDN
which enterprise networking WAN solution would be a cost effective solution for multiple remote sites to interconnect via one physical link
frame relay over a leased line t-carrier
what does WAN stand for
wide area network
what is leased line
- Also referred to as point-to-point or dedicated connections.
- Provides a single, pre-established WAN communications path from the customer premises, through a service provider network, to a remote network.
- The path is guaranteed and the connection is reserved by the service provider for the client’s private use.
- Typically employed over synchronous serial connections up to 45 Mbps.
what is packet switching
- WAN switching method in which network devices share a single point-to-point link to transport packets from a source to a destination across a carrier network.
- Uses virtual circuits (VCs) that provide end-to-end connectivity.
- Because it uses virtual circuits, only the destination is guaranteed, the path is not.
- Offers a service similar to those of leased lines except the line is shared and the cost is lower.
- Often employed over serial connections with speeds ranging from 56 Kbps to 45 Mbps.
what is circuit switching
- Switching system in which a dedicated circuit path must exist between the sender and receiver for the duration of the “call”.
- Used by the service provider network when providing basic telephone service or Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN).
- Commonly used in environments that requires only sporadic WAN usage.
- Basic telephone service is typically employed over an asynchronous serial connection.
what is frame relay
Industry standard switched data link layer protocol that handles multiple virtual circuits (VCs)
what does LAPB stand for
Link Access Procedure, Balanced (LAPB
what is X.25/link access procedure, balanced
ITU-T standard that defines how connections between DTE and DCE are maintained for remote terminal access and computer communications in public data networks.
what is Asynchronous transfer mode
- International standard for cell relay in which multiple service types, such as voice, video, or data, are conveyed in a fixed length cell of 53 bytes.
- This allows processing to occur in the hardware, thereby reducing transit delays.
- Designed to take advantage of high-speed transmission media such as T-carriers and Optical Carriers.
what is ISDN
ISDN is a collection of standards that define a digital architecture that provides an integrated voice/data capability to the customer premises facility, utilizing the public switched network.

what is the maximum distance achieved by the MGBLH1
what is the role of the linksys SR224G switch in a tactical NTCSS network environment

what is 24 10/100 ports
Used to connect 10base-T or 100base-TX devices to the LinkSys SR224G switch. The ports are autosensing so that the speed of the ports is determined automatically when the equipment is connected
what is Gigabit1/gigabit 2 ports
These two 10/100/1000 ports are connection points for network devices, such as Gigabit servers
what is mini-GBIC1/mini-GBIC2 ports
