Metrics :
If the bandwidth of an OSPF interface is configured with the "bandwidth 64" command, what would be the calculated cost of the link? A. 1
B. 64
C. 1562
D. 64000
E. 1500

The question states that OSPF interface has been configured with the bandwidth 64command. Cisco IOS always interprets the values for the bandwidth command as being in kbps, so the bandwidth is configured as 64 kbps. The metric for any OSPF defaults to 100,000,000/bandwidth. So, in this example: 100,000,000 / 64000 = 1562.5

The Cisco-proprietary Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) actively attempts to negotiate a trunk link with the remote switch. The cost in overhead - DTP frames are transmitted every 30 seconds. If you decide to configure a port as a non-negotiable trunk port, there´s no need for the port to send DTP frames. DTP can be turned off at the interface level with the switchport nonegotiate command, but as you see below, you cannot turn DTP off until the port is no longer in dynamic desirable trunking mode. (Dynamic desirable is the default mode for most Cisco switch ports.)
SW2(config)#int fast 0/8 SW2(config-if)#switchport nonegotiate Command rejected: Conflict between ´nonegotiate´ and ´dynamic´ status. SW2(config-if)#switchport mode ? access Set trunking mode to ACCESS unconditionally dynamic Set trunking mode to dynamically negotiate access or trunk mode trunk Set trunking mode to TRUNK unconditionally SW2(config-if)#switchport mode trunk SW2(config-if)#switchport nonegotiate

The Cisco Wireless Control System (Cisco WCS) is a Cisco Wireless LAN Solution network management tool that adds to the capabilities of the Web user interface and the Command Line Interface, moving from an individual controller to a network of controllers.
RF - radio frequency
LWAPP - Lightweight Access Point Protocol or LWAPP is the name of a protocol that can control multiple Wi-Fi wireless access points at once. This can reduce the amount of time spent on configuring, monitoring or troubleshooting a large network. The system will also allow network administrators to closely analyze the network.
This system is installed in a central server that gathers data from RF devices from different brands and settings. The server can command a selected group of devices to apply given settings simultaneously.

Beacon Frames are frames that have control information and are transmitted in each of the 11 channels and help a wireless station to identify nearby wireless access points (AP) in passive scanning mode. They tell the stations in the Basic Service Set (BSS) about the existence of the network. They can also be transmitted by the AP for polling purposes. The Beacon Frame sent by the AP contains control information and can be used by Mobile stations to locate an AP if it is on active scanning mode.

RAP - root Ap vs MAP - mesh Ap
Wireless backhaul (backhaul= obratnii gruz) - is the use of wireless communications systems to get data from an end user to a node in a major network
Each AP runs the Adaptive Wireless Path Protocol designed from the ground up by Cisco specifically for the wireless environment. This protocol allows RAPs(randomly addressed polling) to communicate with each other to determine the best path back to the wired network via the RAP. Once the optimal path is established, AWPP continues to run in the background to establish alternative routes back to the RAP just in case the topology changes or conditions cause the link strength to weaken.

SSID - a Service Set Identifier, is a name used to identify the particular 802.11 wireless LANs to which a user wants to attach. A client device will receive broadcast messages from all access points within range advertising their SSIDs, and can choose one to connect to based on pre-configuration, or by displaying a list of SSIDs in range and asking the user to select one.

Which spread spectrum technology does the 802.11b standard define for operation?

Security in WLAN
WPA2 Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also provides keying material that TKIP or AES uses to generate an encryption key for each packet of transmitted data.

WPA-TKIP includes encryption enhancements like MIC, per-packet keys via initialization vector hashing, and broadcast key rotation
WPA2-AES is the "gold standard" for data encryption.

MIC - message integrity check

Threat Defense for WLANs Detection of unauthorized access, network attacks, and rogue access points via an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), WLAN NAC, and advanced location services.
Cisco’s IPS allows IT managers to continually scan the RF environment, detect rogue access points and unauthorized events, simultaneously track thousands of devices, and mitigate network attacks.

NAC has been specifically designed to help ensure that all wired and wireless endpoint devices like PCs, laptops, servers, and PDAs that are trying to access network resources are adequately protected from security threats. NAC allows organizations to analyze and control all devices coming into the network.
NAC - network admission control

access points are like hubs. access points vs wireless routers, which have ip addres at interface

When using IPv6, then each VLAN must be assigned its own IPv6 network number.

When using IPv6, then each VLAN must be assigned its own IPv6 network number.
Only a few years ago, Ethernet technology was one of many LAN technologies. In LANs, Ethernet was competing with technologies such as FDDI, Token Ring, and Token Bus. In WANs, Frame Relay and ATM became dominant Layer 2 technologies, and Ethernet was not a consideration until only recently. The success of Ethernet as a Layer 2 data networking technology of choice in the LAN environment was primarily due to continued improvement of the Ethernet control-plane by the IEEE 802.1 Working Group .

Traditional WAN data services are primarily based on the time-division multiplexing (TDM) network infrastructure. WAN speeds are essentially bounded by the speeds offered by DS1 (up to 1.5 Mbps), E1 (up to 2 Mbps), E3 (up to 32 Mbps), and DS3 (up to 45 Mbps) circuits. Layer 1 private line service and Layer 2 Frame Relay service are the two dominant WAN services offered today.


In a VLAN-aware switch, each Ethernet frame's MAC header is extended with a 16-bit IEEE 802.1Q tag that includes a 12-bit VLAN ID
to add a new VLAN to a switched network:
A. Create the VLAN
B. Name the VLAN.
D. Add the desired ports to the new VLAN
no need -> Configure an IP address for the VLAN

In telecommunications, Asynchronous communication is transmission of data without the use of an external clock signal.

parallel communication is a method of sending several data signals simultaneously over several parallel channels.

Asynchronous PPP is commonly used in lower-speed transmission and less-expensive transmission systems such as dialup modems. Asynchronous PPP replaces earlier non-standard SLIP (Serial Line IP) protocol.

The Cisco proprietary method that is similar to PPP - HDLC.

qos in ppp

The Cisco HDLC frame uses a proprietary "Type Code" field that may not be compatible
with equipment of other vendors.

"speed" is something set on ethernet interfaces.
On serial links, you have "clock rate" if you are the DCE end.
On ANY interface, you have the "bandwidth" command.

Cisco routers support three LMI types: Cisco, ANSI, and Q933a, it runs in one dedicated PVC of a Frame Relay link and allows the subscriber and the network to exchange information about the link itself and about the status of the other PVCs.(signalling)

Show Frame-relay pvc
Inactive – remote is not working.
Deleted - no LMI is being received from the Frame Relay switch or that there is no service between the CPE router and Frame Relay switch.

Inverse ARP - dlci(analog of mac) to L3

When using point to point subinterfaces in a frame relay network, the subinterfaces will
each have their own IP addresses and will each be contained within their own IP subnet.
The physical interface does not require an IP address.

to configure an existing serial interface to accept a second
Frame Relay virtual circuit is needed:

1 Remove the IP address from the physical interface.
2 Create the virtual interfaces with the interface command.
3 Configure each subinterface with its own IP address.

Frame Relay point-to-point connections vs multipoint Frame Relay - router interfaces
must all be in the same subnet.

Point to point is the default frame relay subinterface type

DLCI - Data Line Circuit ID mac= dlci, keepalives=lmi

csu/dsu - digital loop

1 can be used over ANALOG
2 encapsulates several PROTOCOLs

1 do NOT maps L2 to L3

LCP packets are sent by each PPP device to configure and test the link.
These packets contain a field "Configuration Option" that allows each device to see
the size of the data, compression, and authentication.

LCP negotiates control options: authentication, multilink, callback, compression and error detection.

Regarding PAR (Positive Acknowledgement and Re-transmission), which of the answer choices below are correct? (Select all that apply.)
A. The source device will only retransmit lost packets on the request of the destination device.
B. The source device starts a timer when it sends a segment and retransmits if an acknowledgment is not received before the timer expires.
C. The destination device acknowledges receipt of a segment by sending a packet with a new sequence number and the ACK bit sent.
D. The destination device acknowledges receipt of a segment by sending a packet that indicates the next sequence number it expects
E. If the destination device does not receive a segment, all segments are retransmitted
F. The source device keeps a record of all segments sent and expects and acknowledgment of each.

The only way to know that it has sent the certain sequence number by keeping a record of it.

"multipoint interface" vs "point-to-point subinterfaces"
Point-to-point subinterface - With point-to-point subinterfaces, each pair of routers has its own subnet. If you put the PVC on a point-to-point subinterface, the router assumes that there is only one point-to-point PVC configured on the subinterface. Therefore, any IP packets with a destination IP address in the same subnet are forwarded on this VC. This is the simplest way to configure the mapping and is therefore the recommended method. Use the frame-relay interface-dlci command to assign a DLCI to a specified Frame Relay subinterface.
Multipoint networks - Multipoint networks have three or more routers in the same subnet. If you put the PVC in a point-to-multipoint subinterface or in the main interface (which is multipoint by default), you need to either configure a static mapping or enable inverse Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) for dynamic mapping

The Session multiplexing is a service provided by the transport layer (see OSI Layered Model). It multiplexes several message streams, or sessions onto one logical link and keeps track of which messages belong to which sessions (see session layer). An example of session multiplexing—a single computer with one IP address has several websites open at once.
