Flashcards in Chapter 7 Deck (27):
1

Ethernet_802.2

identifier included to enable the frame header to work with the Data Link layer

2

broadcast

sends packets across all available computers on the network

3

Ethernet_802.3

(Novell Ethernet) does not include a Layer 2 Data Link identifier

4

port bonding

the configuration information that determines where and how a message will be sent or received.

5

MLT

(Multilink trunking) binds ports together to allow fault tolerance or greater throughput

6

Ethernet bonding

combining the bandwidth from two ore more Ethernet links

7

Ethernet SNAP

allows larger number of protocols, a better Ethernet_802.2

8

channel bonding

uses two or more channels to move data

9

SONET

(Synchronous Optical Network) transfers multiple digital bit streams over fiber-optic

10

NFT

(Network Fault Tolerance) bonding technique that provides network redundancy

11

ad hoc wireless network

does not rely on a pre existing infrastructure

12

CSMA/CA

(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance) nodes attempt to avoid collisions by transmitting only when the channel is sensed to be "idle".

13

CSMA/CD

(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection) used most notably in local area networking using early Ethernet technology.

14

content-based access method

accessing a network in which different nodes compete to see which node can send out its packet first

15

Ethernet DIX

(Ethernet II) can be used directly by the IP

16

MAC address filtering

only a pre-programmed MAC address is allowed access to a specific WAP

17

Ethernet II

(Ethernet DIX) can be used directly by the IP

18

channel

specific subrange of radio frequencies that has been set aside within 2.4 GHz

19

baseband

a signal that has a very narrow frequency range

20

broadband

transports multiple signals and traffic types.

21

RAIN

(Redundant Array of Independent Nodes) protects data stored at the file-system level by providing redundancy across network nodes

22

SOHO

(Small Office Home Office)

23

link aggregation

bonding method to increase link speed of multiple network cables and ports

24

Novel Ethernet

(Ethernet_802.3) does not include a Layer 2 Data Link identifier

25

SSID

(Service Set Identifier) Network name for wireless

26

broadcast networking

transmitting a packet that will be received by every device on the network

27

bonding

increases network throughput by using two ore more NICs
