      Ethernet Cabling

      Ethernet is a media access method that is specified at the Data Link layer and uses specific Physical layer cabling and signalling techniques. It is important to be able to differentiate between the types of connectors that can be used to connect an Ethernet network together. I'll discuss the different unshielded twisted-pair cabling used today

      Cisco Router Commands

      Cisco Router IOS Cisco routers are manageable devices, which means that they have the Cisco IOS software for network and internetwork management. The Cisco’s IOS software delivers network services and enabled networked applications. The Cisco IOS is the CLI based software with which Cisco IOS commands can be executed. Cisco Commands There are more than

      Cisco Switch Configuration

      When executing an inter-network installation, many mechanisms and components are usually involved. Cisco is superior because it is the only inter-networking company with a well made end to end inter-networking solution. Cisco switches makes the LAN more competent by creating multiple collision domains. Each switch port is a split collision domain. With only one device

      Understanding the IPX-SPX Protocol

      IPX/SPX is a protocol suite that is implemented on many corporate internetworks. IPX/SPX was developed to operate in Novell Netware in LAN environment. But today, the IPX/SPX is also used in Microsoft NT, Microsoft XP and Lotus Notes environment along with Vista. IPX/SPX on Cisco IOS The Cisco IOS also provides a wide range of

      Understanding Data Encapsulation

      The sending and receiving of data from a source device to the destination device is possible with the help of networking protocols when data encapsulation is used. The data is encapsulated with protocol information at each OSI reference model layer when a host transmits data to another device across a network. Each layer communicates with

      LAN Switching and Switch Types

      Switches represent the features and technologies that can be used to respond to the requirements in emerging network design. Some basic operations and technologies of switches are as follows: Fast Convergence: Switches stipulate that the network must adapt quickly to network topology changes. Deterministic Paths: Switches provide desirability of a given path to a destination for certain
