When is a straight-through cable used in a network?
when connecting a router through the console port
when connecting one switch to another switch
**when connecting a host to a switch
when connecting a router to another router
With the use of unshielded twisted-pair copper wire in a network, what causes crosstalk within the cable pairs?
**the magnetic field around the adjacent pairs of wire
the use of braided wire to shield the adjacent wire pairs
the reflection of the electrical wave back from the far end of the cable

Which OSI layer is responsible for binary transmission, cable specification, and physical aspects of network communication?
An installed fiber run can be checked for faults, integrity, and the performance of the media by using what device?
XYZ Company is installing new cable runs on their data network. What two types of cable would most commonly be used for new runs? (Choose two.)
What is a possible effect of improperly applying a connector to a network cable?
Data will be forwarded to the wrong node.
**Data transmitted through that cable may experience signal loss.
An improper signaling method will be implemented for data transmitted on that cable.
The encoding method for data sent on that cable will change to compensate for the improper connection.
What are three measures of data transfer? (Choose three.)

It combines the technique of cancellation, shielding and twisting to protect data.
It has a maximum speed of 100 Mbps.
**It is the most expensive type of LAN cabling.
Which of the following is a characteristic of single-mode fiber-optic cable?
--> generally uses lasers as the light source
What is considered a benefit of wireless as a media choice?
**more host mobility
lower security risks
reduced susceptibility to interference
less impact of the surroundings on the effective coverage area
What characteristic of UTP cable helps reduce the effects of interference?
the metal braiding in the shielding
the reflective cladding around core
**the twisting of the wires in the cable
the insulating material in the outer jacket
What is a primary role of the Physical layer in transmitting data on the network?
**create the signals that represent the bits in each frame on to the media
provide physical addressing to the devices
determine the path packets take through the network
control data access to the media
