Refer to the exhibit. Switches DSw1 and DSw2 are configured with the HSRP virtual IP address 10.10.10.1, and
standby priority is set to 100. Assume both switches finish booting at the same time and HSRP is operating as
expected. On the basis of this information, which three HSRP statements are true? (Choose three.)

Applying the standby 32 timers 10 30 command on the Gi0/2 interfaces of each switch would decrease the

VLANs.

STP can be active in the distribution layer, but is unaware of any FlexLink updates in the access layer.

Switch DLS1 is the standby router for VLANs 1,10, and 20.

Switch DLS2 is the standby router for VLANs 30 and 40.

Issuing the show standby command on switch DSL1 will reveal that the HSRP state for VLAN 10 is standby.

Issuing the show standby command on switch DSL2 will reveal that the HSRP state for VLAN 30 is standby.

By setting different priorities on different VLANs, a type of load balancing is occurring.

If the Ethernet cables between switch DLS2 and switch ALS1 were severed, Payroll Host would not be able
to reach SQL Server.

prepare phase

plan phase

design phase

implement phase

operate phase

optimize phase
46

Refer to the exhibit. What is the result of the displayed configuration on switches ASW1 and ASW2?

BPDU guard puts an interface that is configured for STP PortFast in the err-disable state upon receipt of a
BPDU.
BPDU guard overrides the PortFast configuration and reverts to the default spanning tree configuration on
the access ports.

BPDU guard forces the uplink ports on ASW1 and ASW2 to become designated ports to prevent DSW2
from becoming a root switch.

BPDU guard places the uplink ports on a ASW1 and ASW2 into the STP loop-inconsistent blocking state
when the ports stop receiving BPDUs.

process switching

silicon switching

Configure the switch physical interface so that the router will have an interface in each VLAN.

For each VLAN, configure trunking between the router and the switch.

Configure a routing protocol on the Layer 3 switch to include each interface.

Configure switch virtual interfaces. The result is that the router will have a virtual interface in each VLAN.

53 Which three statements about RSTP edge ports are true? (Choose three.)

Edge ports function similarly to UplinkFast ports.

Edge ports should never connect to another switch.

If an edge port receives a BPDU, it becomes a normal spanning-tree port.

Edge ports immediately transition to learning mode and then forwarding mode when enabled.
Edge ports never generate topology change notifications (TCNs) when the port transitions to a disabled or
enabled status.

Edge ports can have another switch connected to them as long as the link is operating in full duplex.

54 What are two benefits of local VLANs in the Enterprise Campus Network? (Choose two.)

wide coverage because of the fact that a VLAN can be geographically dispersed throughout the network

ease of management because local VLANs are typically confined to the building access submodule

high availability because redundant paths exist at all infrastructure levels

broad expansion domain because the number of devices on each VLAN can easily be added to

IP address conservation because address blocks can be allocated to VLANs

55 Which phase of the Cisco Lifecycle Services approach includes building a network according to the design and
verifying that it performs according to specifications?

prepare phase

plan phase

design phase

implement phase
operate phase

optimize phase

56

Refer to the exhibit. The link between switch SW1 and SW2 is manually configured as full duplex on SW2 and
with half duplex on SW1. How could this impact the STP operations?

Switch SW2 can move port Fa0/3 into a forwarding state, thereby creating a Layer 2 loop.

Switch SW1 shuts down the Fa0/1 port and thus reinforces a new spanning-tree calculation.

Switch SW2 negotiates the Fa0/1 port on SW1 to be in full-duplex mode which keeps SW1 as the root
bridge for the spanning tree.

Switch SW1 negotiates the Fa0/2 port on SW2 to be in half-duplex mode and thus forces SW2 to become
the root bridge for the spanning tree.
57 What three features are provided by IEEE 802.1Q trunking? (Choose three.)

multivendor support

relatively small frame overhead

multicast support

60 What is the recommended maximum one-way latency when implementing video over IP for real-time video
applications?

Latency is not a factor for a smooth video over IP implementation.

Latency should be defined for voice traffic only (not for video).

The recommended maximum one-way latency should not be more than 150 ms.

When mixed video and voice packets are included in the video stream, the latency should be 300 ms.
