Answer and provide a brief explanation to the following questions:
A type of transmission in which a signal may travel in both directions over a medium simultaneously.
Full duplex is a type of transmission in which a signal may travel in both directions over a medium simultaneously.
A Patch panel is a device that is commonly used to connect individual stranded wires into female RJ45 connectors.
The Demarcation point is typically located on the bottom floor of a building, just inside the building.
Demarcation point (demarc)
Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF)
Main Distribution Frame (MDF)
Vertical cross connect
This cable is designed to provide better protection against EMI and crosstalk than Cat 6 cabling.
Cat 6a cable is designed to provide better protection against EMI and crosstalk than Cat 6 cabling.
Binary is a Base 2 (two) numbering system.
In creating this network, I chose to use Cat 6A cabling to wire the building and the computers. This cabling can deal with speeds of 10Gbps with 500MHz of maximum bandwidth. When the company begins to expand, and the technology improves, the Cat 6A cable will be able to carry the load for a longer time before it becomes obsolete. The cable itself is made of twisted pairs that have extra insulation to prevent the crosstalk which causes data loss. The technology that could replace these cables has not been fully developed, and at this stage, it would be prohibitively expensive to install and maintain. Additionally, the transmission of data at those higher speeds has not been implemented by ISPs yet.
