Define and compare LAN, WAN. LAN WAN 1.Scope of LAN is restricted to a 1. scope of WAN spans over large small/ single building geographical area country/ Continent 2. LAN is owned by same 2. a part of n/w asserts are owned or organization not owned 3 .Data rate of WAN is Gigabyte. 3. Data rate of LAN 10-100mbps 2. What is circuit switching? In a circuit-switched network, a dedicated communication path is established between two stations through the nodes of the network. That path is a connected sequence of physical links between nodes. 3. What is packet switching? In a packet-switched network, it‘s not necessary to dedicate transmission capacity along a path through the network. Rather, data are sent out in a sequence of small chunks, called packets. Packet switching is mainly used in terminal-to-computer and computer-to-computer communications. 4. Define Full Duplex and simplex transmission system. With Full duplex transmission, two stations can simultaneously send and receive data from each other. This mode is known as two-way simultaneous. The signals are transmitted in only one direction. One is the sender and another is the receiver. 5. Draw the diagram of twisted pair cable?

6. Why sliding window flow control is considered to be more efficient than stop and wait flow control. In sliding window flow control, the transmission link is treated as a pipeline that may be filled with frames in transit. But with stop-and-wait flow control only one frame may be in the pipe at a time. 7. List the various frequencies of wireless transmission. Terrestrial Microwave (2GHz to 40GHz), Broadcast Radio (30MHz to 1GHz), Infrared (3 x 1011 to 2 x 1014). 1

10. Differentiate between lost frame and damaged frame? What is the difference between stop and wait and sliding window protocol? Lost frame is the frame that fails to arrive at the other side. The damaged frame is a recognizable frame does arrive, but some of the bits are in error. In stop and wait protocol, we can send one frame at a time where as in sliding window protocol we can send multiple frames at a time. 11. What do you mean by error control and Flow Control? Error control refers to mechanism to detect and correct errors that occur in the transmission of frames. Flow control is a technique for assuring that a transmitting entity does not overwhelm a receiving entity with data. 12. Define piggybacking. The technique of temporarily delaying outgoing acknowledgment so that they can be hooked onto the next outgoing data frame is widely known as piggybacking.

What is a layered Network Architecture?  A layer is created when a different level of abstraction occurs at protocol. Each layer should perform a well defined function.  Function of each layer should be chosen using internationality standardized protocols. Boundaries between should be chosen to minimize information flow across the interfaces.  A set of layers and protocol is called network architecture. A list of protocols used by a system is called protocol stack.
