Computer Network And Data Communication Easy Questions
1)What is meant by Network topology ? Describe the most commonly used network topologies with their relative advantages and disadvantages.
a) Topologies and protocols
b) WAN and internet
c) Bit rate and Baud rate
d) Radio wave and microwave
3).Define the term ‘layer’. Why is layered architecture preferred in network?
b)Compare and contrast OSI and TCP/IP.
4).Write and explain Circuit Switching, Message Switching and Packet Switching.
b).Why is packet switching considered to be more suitable for data communication than circuit switching.
5.)Differentiate between connectionless communication and connection oriented communication.
b).Define the term ‘capacity of channel’. If a binary signal is sent over a 3-kHz channel whose signal to noise ratio is 30 dB, what is the maximum achievable data rate?
