Network Fundamentals 1.6 Select the appropriate cabling type based on implementation requirements 1.4 Compare and contrast collapsed core and three-tier architectures LAN Switching Technologies

2.2 Interpret Ethernet frame format 2 Figure 2.1: Legacy collision domain design

Figure 2.1 shows an old, legacy network thats a single collision domain where only one host can transmit at a time. Figure 2.2: A typical network youd see today Figure 2.2 shows a typical network design still used today, and

see if its any better. Figure 2.3: A router creates broadcast domain boundaries. Figure 2.3 shows how a router would create a

broadcast domain boundary. Figure 2.4: CSMA/CD When a host wants to transmit over the network, it first checks for the presence of a digital signal on the wire. If all is clear and no other host is transmitting, the host will then proceed with its transmission.

Figure 2.5: Half-duplex example Figure 2.5 shows a network with four hosts connected to a hub. Figure 2.6: Full-duplex example

Figure 2.6 shows four hosts connected to a switch, plus a hub, and definitely try not to use hubs if you can help it! Figure 2.7: Ethernet addressing using MAC addresses

Figure 2.7 shows the 48-bit MAC addresses and how the bits are divided. Figure 2.8: Typical Ethernet frame format The function of Ethernet stations is to pass data frames between each other using a group of bits known as a MAC frame format. This provides error detection from a cyclic redundancy check (CRC). But rememberthis is error detection, not error correction. An example of a typical Ethernet frame used today is shown in Figure 2.8.

Figure 2.9: Category 5 Enhanced UTP cable A discussion about Ethernet cabling is an important one, especially if you are planning on taking the Cisco exams. You need to really understand the following three types of cables: Straight-through cable

Crossover cable Rolled cable We will look at each in the following sections, but first, lets take a look at the most common Ethernet cable used today, the category 5 Enhanced Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP), shown in Figure 2.9. Figure 2.10: Straight-through

Ethernet cable Figure 2.11: Crossover Ethernet cable Notice that instead of connecting 1 to 1, 2 to 2, and so on, here we connect pins 1 to 3 and 2 to 6 on each side of the cable.

Figure 2.12: Typical uses for straight-through and crossover Ethernet cables Figure 2.13: UTP Gigabit crossover Ethernet cable

For a straight-through cable its still 1 to 1, 2 to 2, and so on up to pin 8. And in creating the gigabit crossover cable, youd still cross 1 to 3 and 2 to 6, but you would add 4 to 7 and 5 to 8pretty straightforward! Figure 2.14: Rolled Ethernet cable

These are probably the easiest cables to make because you just cut the end off on one side of a straight-through cable, turn it over, and put it back onwith a new connector, of course! Figure 2.15: Configuring your

console emulation program Notice that Bit Rate is set to 9600, Data Bits to 8, Parity to None, and Flow Control is set to None. Figure 2.16: A Cisco 2960 console connections Notice there are two console connections on this new switcha

typical original RJ45 connection, and the newer mini type-B USB console. Remember that the new USB port supersedes the RJ45 port if you just happen to plug into both at the same time, and the USB port can have speeds up to 115,200 Kbps, which is awesome if you have to use Xmodem to update an IOS.

Figure 2.17: RJ45 UTP cable question #1 Now that youve seen the various RJ45 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables, what type of cable is used between the switches in Figure 2.17? Figure 2.18: RJ45 UTP cable question #2

What types of cables are used in the network shown in Figure 2.18? Figure 2.21: Data encapsulation Figure 2.21 shows the PDUs and how they attach control information

to each layer. This figure demonstrates how the upper-layer user data is converted for transmission on the network. Written Labs and Review Questions Read through the Exam Essentials section together in class.
