1 Exam Name TRUE/FALSE. Write 'T' if the statement is true and 'F' if the statement is false. 1) Telephone networks are fundamentally different from computer networks. 1) 2) Increasingly, voice, video, and data communications are all based on Internet technology. 2) 3) Firms in the past used two fundamentally different types of networks: telephone networks and computer networks. 4) Due to continuing telecommunications deregulation and information technology innovation, telephone and computer networks are slowly converging into a single digital network using shared Internet-based standards and equipment. 5) Increasingly, voice and data communication as well as Internet access are taking place over broadband wireless platforms, such as cell phones, handheld digital devices, and PCs in wireless networks. 6) Each computer on the network contains a network interface device called a network operating card (NOC). 7) Contemporary digital networks and the Internet are based on four key technologies: client/server computing, the use of packet switching, the development of widely used communications standards and PC operating systems. 8) Pocket switching is a method of slicing digital messages into parcels called pockets, sending the pockets along different communication paths as they become available, and then reassembling the pockets once they arrive at their destinations. 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) Packet switching makes much less efficient use of the communications capacity of a network. 9) 10) TCP refers to the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), which is responsible for the delivery of packets and includes the disassembling and reassembling of packets during transmission. 11) IP refers to the Internet Protocol (IP), establishes a connection between the computers, sequences the transfer of packets, and acknowledges the packets sent. 12) A digital signal is represented by a continuous waveform that passes through a communications medium; analog signals are used for voice communication. 10) 11) 12)

2 13) A analog signal is a discrete, binary waveform, rather than a continuous waveform. 13) 14) A modem is a device that translates digital signals from a computer into analog form so that they can be transmitted over analog telephone lines. 15) A local-area network (LAN) is designed to connect personal computers and other digital devices within a half-mile or 500-metre radius. 14) 15) 16) The most common LAN operating systems are Windows, Linux, and Novell. 16) 17) Ethernet is the dominant LAN standard at the physical network level, specifying the physical medium to carry signals between computers; access control rules; and a standardized set of bits used to carry data over the system. 18) A peer-to-peer network treats all processors equally and is used primarily in small networks with 10 or fewer users. 19) Sometimes LANs are described in terms of the way their components are connected together, or their topology. 20) In a bus topology, one station transmits signals, which travel in both directions along a single transmission segment. 21) Wide-area networks (WAN) is a network that spans a metropolitan area, usually a city and its major suburbs. 22) Metropolitan-area network (MAN)span broad geographical distances entire regions, states, continents, or the entire globe. 23) Twisted wire consists of strands of copper wire twisted in pairs and is an older type of transmission medium. 24) Microwave systems, both terrestrial and celestial, transmit high-frequency radio signals through the atmosphere and are widely used for high-volume, long-distance, point-to-point communication. 25) The range of frequencies that can be accommodated on a particular telecommunications channel is called its bandwidth. 17) 18) 19) 20) 21) 22) 23) 24) 25)

Answer: access point 156) ESSAY. Write your answer in the space provided or on a separate sheet of paper. 157) How does packet switching work? Answer: Packet switching is a method of slicing digital messages into parcels called packets, sending the packets along different communication paths as they become available, and then reassembling the packets once they arrive at their destinations. Packet switching makes much more efficient use of the communications capacity of a network than did circuit-switching. In packet-switched networks, messages are first broken down into small fixed bundles of data called packets. The packets include information for directing the packet to the right address and for checking transmission errors along with the data. The packets are transmitted over various communications channels using routers, each packet traveling independently. Packets of data originating at one source will be routed through many different paths and networks before being reassembled into the original message when they reach their destinations. 158) Describe the principal components of telecommunications networks and key networking technologies? simple network consists of two or more connected computers. Basic network components include computers, network interfaces, a connection medium, network operating system software, and either a

16 hub or a switch. mobile cellular communication, wireless local-area networks, videoconferencing systems, a corporate The networking Web site, intranets, extranets, and an array of local and wide-area networks, including the Internet. infrastructure for a Contemporary networks have been shaped by the rise of client/server computing, the use of packet large company switching, and the adoption of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) as a includes the universal communications standard for linking disparate networks and computers, including the traditional Internet. Protocols provide a common set of rules that enable communication among diverse telephone system, components in a telecommunications network. 159) Murray is trying to decide what type of telecommunication transmission media and what type of network he might use at the University of Lethbridge. Murray goes to the IS faculty to learn about these subjects in a general way. Describe to Murray what the main telecommunications transmission media and type of network the university would use. Answer: The principal physical transmission media are twisted copper telephone wire, coaxial copper cable, fibre optic cable, and wireless transmission. Twisted wire enables companies to use existing wiring for telephone systems for digital communication although it is relatively slow. Fibre optic and coaxial cable are used for high-volume transmission but are expensive to install. Microwave and communications satellites are used for wireless communication over long distances. Local-area networks (LANs) connect PCs and other digital devices together within a 500-metre radius and are used today for many corporate computing tasks. Network components may be connected together using a star, bus, or ring topology. Wide-area networks (WANs) span broad geographical distances, ranging from several kilometres to continents, and are private networks that are independently managed. Metropolitan-area networks (MANs) span a single urban area. Digital subscriber line (DSL) technologies, cable Internet connections, and T1 lines are often used for high-capacity Internet connections. Cable Internet connections provide high-speed access to the Web or corporate intranets at speeds of up to 10 Mbps. A T1 line supports a data transmission rate of Mbps. 160) Linda has been reading in the popular press all about RFID and wireless sensor networks. She is in the livestock business and wonders if there might be some applications of this technology in her industry. Linda first wants to understand the basics of these technologies. Describe for her why radio frequency identification (RFID) and wireless sensor networks can be valuable for business. Answer: Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems provide a powerful technology for tracking the movement of goods by using tiny tags with embedded data about an item and its location. RFID readers read the radio signals transmitted by these tags and pass the data over a network to a computer for processing. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are networks of interconnected wireless sensing and transmitting devices that are embedded into the physical environment to provide measurements of many points over large spaces. 161) Identify the layers of the Department of Defense reference model for TCP/IP, and describe how this model works. Answer: The application layer enables client application programs to access the other layers and defines the protocols that applications use to exchange data. One of these application protocols is the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which is used to transfer Web page files. The transport layer is responsible for providing the application layer with communication and packet services. This layer includes TCP and other protocols. The Internet layer is responsible for addressing, routing, and packaging data packets called IP datagrams. The Internet Protocol is one of the protocols used in this layer. At the bottom of the reference model, the network interface layer is responsible for placing packets on and receiving them from the network medium, which could be any networking technology. Data sent from one computer to the other passes downward through all four layers, starting with the sending computer's application layer and passing through the network interface layer. After the data reach the recipient host computer, they travel up the layers and are reassembled into a format the receiving computer can use. If the receiving computer finds a damaged packet, it asks the sending computer to retransmit it. This process is reversed when the receiving computer responds.

17 162) You have been hired by a tax preparation firm to set up a network connecting several new branches in a metropolitan area. What type of network hardware and transmission media will you choose and why? ecause of security issues, I wouldn't choose wireless transmission. The offices themselves can each have an Ethernet-based LAN, and they can connect to each other and to an Intranet via a secure, encrypted VPN over the Internet. Network hardware anticipated is: coaxial cable, network server, a switch. Because the LANs will be connected through a VPN, a router may not be needed. In anticipation of the need for a lot of data transmission, the connection to the Internet will be through cable modems. A firewall, or several, for security purposes is anticipated. 163) You have been hired by a small new Web design firm to set up a network for its single office location. The network is primarily needed for exchanging files, accessing and managing beta Web sites on their Web server, and connecting to the Internet. The firm hires many freelancers who come into the office on an ad hoc basis and it does not have a lot of money to spend on infrastructure. What type of network will you recommend? Answer: I would recommend a mixed Ethernet and wireless network. The Ethernet LAN would connect the Web servers and primary workstations and connect via cable service to the Internet. Freelancers could connect wirelessly via access points. 164) What types of capabilities does the Internet provide businesses and what Internet protocols or technologies support these? Which have proven the most valuable to businesses thus far? Answer: The Internet provides ways to transfer files (FTP), work on remote computers (Telnet), distribute information in the form of pages (The Web), have real-time text-based conversations (instant messaging, chat), collaborate (wikis), communicate and share data with suppliers (extranets, Web-based applications), conduct group discussions (newsgroups), real-time voice conversations (chat, VOIP), send text messages ( ) and create lower cost networks (TCP/IP, extranets, intranets, VPN). Probably the two most important effects the Internet has had are the effects on network costs and ease of setting up a network using TCP/IP and Internet-based technologies, and , allowing near-instant documented messaging. has been a valuable alternative to post office mail. 165) What are the business advantages of using voice over IP (VoIP) technology? usiness can lower costs by using the Internet to deliver voice information, avoiding the tolls charged by local and long-distance telephone networks. They can lower costs from not having to create a separate telephone network. VOIP enables communication by supporting Internet conference calls using video. VOIP also provides flexibility - phones can be added or moved to different offices without rewiring or reconfiguring the network. 166) Describe and explain the idea of "network neutrality." Are you in favour of network neutrality? Why or why not? Answer: Network neutrality describes the current equal access by users to Internet bandwidth, regardless of the services they are using on the Internet. Network neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers must allow customers equal access to content and applications, regardless of the source or nature of the content. Presently, the Internet is indeed neutral: all Internet traffic is treated equally on a first-come, first-serve basis by Internet backbone owners. The Internet is neutral because it was built on phone lines, which are subject to common carriage' laws. These laws require phone companies to treat all calls and customers equally. For example, someone using the Internet to download large movie files pays the same rate as someone accessing their . Now telecommunications and cable companies want to be able to charge differentiated prices based on the amount of bandwidth consumed by content being delivered over the Internet. Student opinions will vary; one might be: I support network neutrality because the risk of censorship increases when network operators can selectively block or slow access to certain content.

18 167) Describe the current trends and movements in Internet technology and content. Answer: One upcoming change is the move to IPv6, a new addressing scheme that will allow for billions more addresses. Other technological changes are being worked on by Internet2 and Next-Generation Internet (NGI); consortia representing 200 universities, private businesses, and government agencies in the United States that are working on a new, robust, high-bandwidth version of the Internet. A current trend in Internet content is Web 2.0 Web 2.0, second-generation interactive Internet-based services that enable people to collaborate, share information, and create new services online like mashups, blogs, RSS, and wikis. With Web 2.0, the Web is not just a collection of destination sites but a source of data and services that can be combined to create applications users need. Web 2.0 software applications run on the Web itself instead of the desktop and bring the vision of Web-based computing closer to realization. Another potential change or trend in Internet content is the Web 3.0 or Semantic Web, a collaborative effort led by the World Wide Web Consortium to make Web searching more efficient by reducing the amount of human involvement in searching for and processing Web information. The Semantic Web is still in its infancy. Further development requires extensive work to establish specific meanings for data on the Web, categories for classifying the data, and relationships between classification categories. Once some of this work takes place, computers will be able to make more sense of the Web, intelligent agents will be capable of performing sophisticated search tasks, and data in Web pages will be able to be processed automatically. Another technological change can be seen in the way the Internet is being accessed. Mobile wireless broadband Internet access is the fastest-growing form of Internet access in ) How are RFID systems used in inventory control and supply chain management? Answer: In inventory control and supply chain management, RFID systems capture and manage more detailed information about items in warehouses or in production than bar coding systems. If a large number of items are shipped together, RFID systems track each pallet, lot, or even unit item in the shipment. This technology may help companies improve receiving and storage operations by enhancing their ability to "see" exactly what stock is stored in warehouses or on retail store shelves. 169) What are wireless sensor networks? How do they work and what are they used for? Answer: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are networks of interconnected wireless devices that are embedded into the physical environment to provide measurements of many points over large spaces. These devices have built-in processing, storage, and radio frequency sensors and antennas. They are linked into an interconnected network that routes the data they capture to a computer for analysis. These networks range from hundreds to thousands of nodes. Because wireless sensor devices are placed in the field for years at a time without any maintenance or human intervention, they must have very low power requirements and batteries capable of lasting for years. Wireless sensor networks are valuable in areas such as monitoring environmental changes; monitoring traffic or military activity; protecting property; efficiently operating and managing machinery and vehicles; establishing security perimeters; monitoring supply chain management; or detecting chemical, biological, or radiological material.

22 156) access point 157) Packet switching is a method of slicing digital messages into parcels called packets, sending the packets along different communication paths as they become available, and then reassembling the packets once they arrive at their destinations. Packet switching makes much more efficient use of the communications capacity of a network than did circuit-switching. In packet-switched networks, messages are first broken down into small fixed bundles of data called packets. The packets include information for directing the packet to the right address and for checking transmission errors along with the data. The packets are transmitted over various communications channels using routers, each packet traveling independently. Packets of data originating at one source will be routed through many different paths and networks before being reassembled into the original message when they reach their destinations. 158) A simple network consists of two or more connected computers. Basic network components include computers, network interfaces, a connection medium, network operating system software, and either a hub or a switch. The networking infrastructure for a large company includes the traditional telephone system, mobile cellular communication, wireless local-area networks, videoconferencing systems, a corporate Web site, intranets, extranets, and an array of local and wide-area networks, including the Internet. Contemporary networks have been shaped by the rise of client/server computing, the use of packet switching, and the adoption of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) as a universal communications standard for linking disparate networks and computers, including the Internet. Protocols provide a common set of rules that enable communication among diverse components in a telecommunications network. 159) The principal physical transmission media are twisted copper telephone wire, coaxial copper cable, fibre optic cable, and wireless transmission. Twisted wire enables companies to use existing wiring for telephone systems for digital communication although it is relatively slow. Fibre optic and coaxial cable are used for high-volume transmission but are expensive to install. Microwave and communications satellites are used for wireless communication over long distances. Local-area networks (LANs) connect PCs and other digital devices together within a 500-metre radius and are used today for many corporate computing tasks. Network components may be connected together using a star, bus, or ring topology. Wide-area networks (WANs) span broad geographical distances, ranging from several kilometres to continents, and are private networks that are independently managed. Metropolitan-area networks (MANs) span a single urban area. Digital subscriber line (DSL) technologies, cable Internet connections, and T1 lines are often used for high-capacity Internet connections. Cable Internet connections provide high-speed access to the Web or corporate intranets at speeds of up to 10 Mbps. A T1 line supports a data transmission rate of Mbps. 160) Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems provide a powerful technology for tracking the movement of goods by using tiny tags with embedded data about an item and its location. RFID readers read the radio signals transmitted by these tags and pass the data over a network to a computer for processing. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are networks of interconnected wireless sensing and transmitting devices that are embedded into the physical environment to provide measurements of many points over large spaces. 161) The application layer enables client application programs to access the other layers and defines the protocols that applications use to exchange data. One of these application protocols is the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which is used to transfer Web page files. The transport layer is responsible for providing the application layer with communication and packet services. This layer includes TCP and other protocols. The Internet layer is responsible for addressing, routing, and packaging data packets called IP datagrams. The Internet Protocol is one of the protocols used in this layer. At the bottom of the reference model, the network interface layer is responsible for placing packets on and receiving them from the network medium, which could be any networking technology. Data sent from one computer to the other passes downward through all four layers, starting with the sending computer's application layer and passing through the network interface layer. After the data reach the recipient host computer, they travel up the layers and are reassembled into a format the receiving computer can use. If the receiving computer finds a damaged packet, it asks the sending computer to retransmit it. This process is reversed when the receiving computer responds. 162) Because of security issues, I wouldn't choose wireless transmission. The offices themselves can each have an Ethernet-based LAN, and they can connect to each other and to an Intranet via a secure, encrypted VPN over the Internet. Network hardware anticipated is: coaxial cable, network server, a switch. Because the LANs will be connected through a VPN, a router may not be needed. In anticipation of the need for a lot of data transmission, the

23 conn ection to the Internet will be through cable modems. A firewall, or several, for security purposes is anticipated. 163) I would recommend a mixed Ethernet and wireless network. The Ethernet LAN would connect the Web servers and primary workstations and connect via cable service to the Internet. Freelancers could connect wirelessly via access points. 164) The Internet provides ways to transfer files (FTP), work on remote computers (Telnet), distribute information in the form of pages (The Web), have real-time text-based conversations (instant messaging, chat), collaborate (wikis), communicate and share data with suppliers (extranets, Web-based applications), conduct group discussions (newsgroups), real-time voice conversations (chat, VOIP), send text messages ( ) and create lower cost networks (TCP/IP, extranets, intranets, VPN).
