Short Questions
Answer all the questions. Each question carries 2 marks.

1) What is the difference between Wi-Fi and Mobile Fi?


Ans. a) Definition of wireless and mobile-fi
b) Standards of wireless and mobile-fi

2) Wireless is convenient and less expensive, but why its not perfect?
Ans. a) Device limitation
b) incompatible standards
c) attenuation

3) State the difference between analogue and digital signal?


Ans. a) Definition of analogue and digital signals
b) form of signal
c) diagram

4) What is channel capacity?


Ans. a) Definition of channel capacity

5) What is the function of interface between the layers?


Ans. a) The passing of data and network information down through the layers of the sending
device and back up through the layers of the receiving device is made possible by an
interface between each pair of adjacent layers. Each interface defines the information
and services a layer must provide for the layer above it.

6) What are the names of protocols at network layer for TCP/IP?


Ans. a) ARP
b) RARP
c) IGMP
d) ICMP

7) How packet switching works?


Ans. Data is transmitted in blocks, called packets. Before sending, the message is broken into
a series of packets. Packets consists of a portion of data plus a packet header that
includes control information. At each node, packet is received, stored briefly and passed
to the next node

8) What is virtual circuit?


Ans. A circuit in which pre-planned route established before packets sent. All packets
between source and destination follow this route. Routing decision not required by nodes
for each packet. Packets still buffered at each node and queued for output over a line.

9) What is the difference between CSMA and CSMA/CD?


Ans. a) abbreviation
b) definition
c) functioning

10) What is the difference between CDMA and SDMA?


Ans. a) abbreviation
b) definition
c) functioning
