Networking Concepts

I would tell Fred to use the Peer-to-Peer architecture or the Client Server architecture both have pro’s and con’s. The reason that I would tell him to use the Peer-to-Peer architecture is in a peer to peer architecture, workstation on the network will be able to shares its files equally with the other buyers. Peer-to-peer networks should be installed in very small businesses, and since this is a small business, it should fit perfectly. They are inexpensive to set up…

Checkpoint Switching

Packet switched networks move data in small blocks, or packets based on the destination address in each packet. When they are received the packets are reassembled in sequence to make up the message. Circuit switched networks rely on dedicated point-to-point connections during transmission. There are many differences between the two whereas they usually end up on separate sides of a corporation. Circuit switched networks were traditionally used for phone calls and packet switched networks handled all the data. With the…

Why Is It Impractical for an Organization to Own the Entirety of a Wan_

Why is it impractical for an organization to own the entirety of a WAN? There are no limitations on WANs so they can be custom built for the size of the organization. Why is it favorable for an organization to maintain ownership of the entirety of the LAN? For the purpose of organizational expansion. Exercise 7.1.2 What effect will increasing the required transmission distance have on transmitting the signal clearly? The longer the distance the more chances that you have…

Performing Protocol Captures

1.Which tool is better at performing protocol captures and which tool is better at performing protocol analysis? Wireshark is better for performing protocol analysis and Netwitness Investigator is best at performing protocol captures. Wireshark does well at both aspects, which makes it a little better. 2.What is promiscuous mode and how does this allow tcpdump, Wireshark, and NetWitness Investigator to perform protocol capture off a live network? Promiscuous mode is for a wired network interface controller or wireless network interface…

Impacts of Data Classification Standards

Through my research I have found three basic domains that are affected by the “internal use only” data classification standard. What I would like to discuss in this report addressing IT infrastructure is how these three domains are affected. I will be discussing the User Domain, Workstation Domain, and LAN Domain and will cover everything from the end user to the internet. The User Domain controls who has what access to what information within the organization and enforces the APU…

Backbone Network

The chapter starts out explaining how a BN (Backbone Network) works. Backbone Network: Connecting all of the LANs of an organization entails another type of network (BN). A properly designed backbone network provides a high-speed circuit that serves as the central conduit across which the LANs of an organization can communicate. They can also be used to connect LANs within a building, across a campus, and, increasingly, across much greater distances. A BN, as indicated by its name, is a…
