to interrupt the ping process
An administrator uses the Ctrl-Shift-6 key combination on a switch after issuing the ping command. What is the purpose of using these keystrokes?
Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator is configuring access control to switch SW1. If the administrator uses a console connection to connect to the switch, which password is needed to access user EXEC mode?

It encourages competition and promotes choices.
What is an advantage to using a protocol that is defined by an open standard?
It assists in protocol design and It prevents technology in one layer from affecting other layers.
What are two benefits of using a layered network model?
Network and Transport
Which two OSI model layers have the same functionality as two layers of the TCP/IP model? (Choose two.)
What name is assigned to the transport layer PDU?
physical layer
A network administrator is troubleshooting connectivity issues on a server. Using a tester, the administrator notices that the signals generated by the server NIC are distorted and not usable. In which layer of the OSI model is the error categorized?
1) the amount of traffic that is currently crossing the network
2) the type of traffic that is crossing the network
3) the latency that is created by the number of network devices that the data is crossing
A network administrator is measuring the transfer of bits across the company backbone for a mission critical financial application. The administrator notices that the network throughput appears lower than the bandwidth expected. Which three factors could influence the differences in throughput?
What is a characteristic of UTP cabling?
1) It is not affected by EMI or RFI.
2) It is more expensive than UTP cabling is.
What are two characteristics of fiber-optic cable?
It places information in the frame allowing multiple Layer 3 protocols to use the same network interface and media.
What is a characteristic of the LLC sublayer?
partial mesh
A network team is comparing physical WAN topologies for connecting remote sites to a headquarters building. Which topology provides high availability and connects some, but not all, remote sites?
What method is used to manage contention-based access on a wireless network?
1) data link layer addressing
2) detection of errors through CRC calculations
3) delimiting groups of bits into frames
What are the three primary functions provided by Layer 2 data encapsulation?
It will discard the frame.
What will a host on an Ethernet network do if it receives a frame with a destination MAC address that does not match its own MAC address?
store-and-forward switching
Which frame forwarding method receives the entire frame and performs a CRC check to detect errors before forwarding the frame?
Refer to the exhibit. If host A sends an IP packet to host B, what will the destination address be in the frame when it leaves host A?
destination MAC address to a destination IPv4 address
What addresses are mapped by ARP?
routing packets toward the destination

What are two services provided by the OSI network layer?
to retain contents when power is removed

to store the startup configuration file
What are two functions of NVRAM?
The administrator will be presented with the R1> prompt.
Refer to the exhibit. What will be the result of entering this configuration the next time a network administrator connects a console cable to the router and no additional commands have been entered?
