WANs connect nodes, such as workstations, servers, printers, and other devices, in a small geographical area on a single network.​


A bus topology WAN is often the best option for an organization with only a few sites and the capability to use dedicated circuits.​


The carrier’s endpoint on a WAN is called the Data Communications Equipment (DCE)​.


T-1 cables cannot utilize straight through cables using the same wiring scheme as LAN patch cables.​


In a PON setup, the system is considered passive because no repeaters or other devices intervene between the carrier and the customer.

​What Layer 3 technology is employed by distance-vector routing protocols in which a router knows which of its interfaces a routing update and will not retransmit, or advertise, that same update on the same interface?


What protocol is commonly used to aggregate / bond T-1 / T-3 lines?


When copper cabling is used to carry T-1 traffic, what kind of connector is used?

​data link connection identifier

​When using frame relay, what is the name of the identifier that routers use to determine which circuit to send frames to?


​Which version of DOCSIS provides 38 Mbps per channel and requires a minimum of 4 channels to be used?

​1/4 mile

​The best 802.11n signal can travel approximately how far?

Carrier Ethernet Transport

In metro settings, end-to-end, carrier-grade Ethernet networks can be established via what protocol?​

Ethernet MAN

​Metro Ethernet

A MAN connection is also known as which two terms below?​



What two competing standards exist for cell phone networks?​


​frame relay

What two network protocols below rely on virtual circuits?​



​Frame relay relies on what two different types of virtual circuits?

Layer 2

Layer 1

At what two layers of the OSI model are LAN and WAN protocols likely to differ?​

Data Terminal Console (DTC)

The customer’s endpoint device on the WAN is called the __________________.​


Multiplexing enables a single ____________ circuit to carry 24 channels, each capable of 64 Kbps throughput.​

Optical Networking Unit (ONU)

The ________________ distributes signals to multiple endpoints via fiber-optic cable, in the case of FTTP, or via copper or coax cable.​
