Bus (daisy chain) topology is designed with a ... to each node that terminates at both ends?
shared single cable using Coaxial BNC Connectors
Extended star/tree topology is designed as a central hub that connects using ...?
central hub connected to other hubs that branch out to nodes instead of one main central hub.
Hierarchical topology is designed as a ...?
Two tier collapse core topology is designed by merging... as one?
core and distribution layer come together as one
Three-tier campus hierarchical topology is designed using what three layers...?
core, distribution and access layer independently from each other.
Core layer is responsible for what...?
fastest and most reliable data transmission
Distribution layer is responsible for...?
distribution, routing and policy-based management
Access layer is responsible for access to ...?
giving access to connected nodes and resources on the network.
Spine and leaf topology is designed how ...?
