Flashcards in Networking Test 1 Deck (11):
Which term describes a spanning-tree network that has all switch ports in either the blocking or forwarding state?
Which of the following roles is assumed by every root bridge port that is connected to another switch in the spanning tree topology:
When a spanning tree is converged, what is the name given to the switch to which the least cost if calculated to forward traffic?
Of the two components that comprise the Bridge ID, which component should you change if you need to alter the Bridge ID?
Combination priority (1-64k)
What components make up a Bridge ID?
Combination priority (1-64k) and MAC address
You have configured BPDUGuard on a switch port? Why have you done that?
You want the port to be shut down if a BPDU is seen on that port
Why would you configure PortFast on a switch port?
PortFast causes a switch or trunk port to enter the spanning tree forwarding state immediately, bypassing the listening and learning states.
You can use PortFast on switch or trunk ports that are connected to a single workstation, switch, or server to allow those devices to connect to the network immediately, instead of waiting for the port to transition from the listening and learning states to the forwarding state.
What is wireless signal fading?
Signal weakening due to reflection, diffraction, or scatter
What is wireless signal attenuation?
Signal weakening due to distance from transmitter, can be corrected with an extender
What is wireless signal noise?
Interference from other devices, commonly due to use of unlicensed spectrum
