involves the creation of mathematical equations to calculate various network values

Analytical modeling

multiplexes multiple data streams onto a single fiber-optic line

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM)

The ____-switched network is most often found in networks designed to transfer computer data (such as the Internet)


SONET defines a hierarchy of signaling levels, or data transmission rates, called ____

synchronous transport signals (STS)

A ____ is a security procedure that uses public key cryptography to assign to a document a code for which you alone have the key

digital signature

The ____ layer of the OSI model makes sure the data received at the very end of a transmission is exactly the same as the data originally transmitted


IEEE created the 100-Mbps Ethernet 802.3u protocol also called ____ Ethernet


When a node on a wide area network ____ network transmits its data, the data is received by all the other nodes


technology is a unique form of multiplexing in that all the subchannels multiplexed together are intended for one user

Discrete multitone

cable represented a major improvement in the ability of transmission media to secure sensitive data


shift keying represents 0s and 1s by different changes in the phase of a waveform


Using ____, when a device transmits a binary 0, a zero voltage is transmitted. When the device transmits a binary 1, either a positive voltage or a negative voltage is transmitted


ensures that the network does not become saturated at any one point

Congestion control

shift keying incorporates four different phase angles, each of which represents 2 bits

Quadrature phase

A ____ is a device that interconnects two segments of local area networks and acts as a filter


is the process of sending data over a signal by varying either its amplitude, frequency, or phase

division multiplexing is a good technique for transmitting multiple concurrent signals over a fiber-optic line


twisted pair is designed to support data transmission with signals as high as 200 MHz for 100 meters

Category 6

is the process of sending data over a signal by varying either its amplitude, frequency, or phase


The ____ of a signal is the number of times a signal makes a complete cycle within a given time frame

is the technology behind the popular digital subscriber line (DSL) system

Coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM)

network is the only network that offers a dedicated path


With ____, when a frame relay router experiences congestion, it sends a congestion signal forward to the destination station, which in turn tells the originating station to slow down the transfer of data

forward explicit congestion notification (FECN)
