When comparing and contrasting the similarities and differences between bridges and switches, which of the following are valid statements? Choose all the valid answer choices) A. Bridges are faster than switches because they have fewer ports. B. A switch is a multiport bridge, C. Bridges and switches learn MAC addresses by examining the source MAC address of each frame received. D. A bridge will forward a broadcast but a switch will not. E. Bridges and switches increase the size of a collision domain. F. None of the above statements are true. Answer: B, C Explanation: Both bridges and switches build the bridge table by listening to incoming frames and examining the source MAC address in the frame. Switches are multiport bridges that allow you to create multiple broadcast domains. Each broadcast domain is like a distinct virtual bridge within a switch. Incorrect Answers: A. Switches are generally faster than bridges. Bridges also do not necessarily have fewer ports than switches. D. Both bridges and switches will forward broadcast and multicast traffic, assuming that the traffic remains in the same VLAN. E. The use of VLANs in a switch can decrease the size of the collision domain, by creating additional, smaller collision domains. QUESTION 4: Which of the following correctly describe the various functions and virtues of a router? (Select all valid answer choices) A. Packet switching B. Collision prevention on a LAN segment. C.

To obtain the IP Address of a connected device in order to telnet to the device 640-802 C. D Explanation: A: A half duplex connection is where only one device can send or receive at a time. .The Certifyme network administrator needs to determine what LAN devices to install on the Certifyme network. if you have a 100Mb half-duplex connection. You can use: Show cdp neighbor Show cdp neighbor details Commands to gather the information of connected neighbors. To verify the type of cable interconnecting two devices D. filters can be helpful in dealing with unnecessary broadcast and multicast packets. Furthermore. What are two advantages of using Layer 2 Ethernet switches over hubs? (Choose two) A. If you have a 100Mb full duplex connection. To determine the status of the routing protocols between directly connected routers G. you can effectively get 200Mb out of the link because you could be sending 100Mb and receiving 100Mb at the same time. Decreasing the number of collision domains Answer: A. Allowing simultaneous frame transmissions B. which is useful info for troubleshooting and documenting the network. To verify Layer 2 connectivity between two devices when Layer 3 fails E. To determine the status of network services on a remote device B. Filtering frames based on MAC addresses E. Because link layer information often includes a reference to an upper-layer protocol. only sending at 100Mb OR receiving at 100Mb can happen at the same time. D: Switches are capable of filtering frames based on any Layer 2 fields. A full duplex connection is where both devices can send and receive at the same time. To obtain VLAN information from directly connected switches F. Thus. D Explanation: Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) is a proprietary protocol designed by Cisco to help administrators collect information about both locally attached and remote devices. QUESTION 10: CDP is being used throughout the Certifyme network. switches usually can filter on this parameter. What are two reasons why the Certifyme network administrator would use CDP?
