What are the components of a packet switch?
A. input ports, output ports, a router processor, a switching fabric
B. input ports, output ports, a router processor.
C. input ports, output ports, a switching fabric
D. input ports, output ports, a router processing, a switching fabric, a memory chip
Explanation: A packet switch has four components: input ports, output ports, the routing processor, and the switching fabric.

A. Setup, data transfer, teardown
B. request-connect, data sending-acknowledgment, request-disconnect
C. send-connect, data transfer, request-disconnect
D. none of above

Which of the following field of the TCP header tells how many bytes may be sent starting at the byte acknowledged?
A. TCP header length B. Window size
C. Acknowledgement number D. Urgent pointer
The output of a Ethernet card is connected to the data encoder/decoder, which in turn is connected to the transmission cable through a
a. Repeater b. Transceiver c. Segments d. Groups
In Ethernet when Manchester encoding is used, the bit rate is:
(a) Half the baud rate (b) Twice the baud rate
(c) Same as the baud rate (d) None of the above
Ans: Option (a)
Explanation: Manchester coding is the process by which digital information in a binary bit stream is converted into electrical signals for transmission. It uses a two state transition of line voltage to represent one bit of information. In other words, two baud (voltage changes) is used for one bit (piece of information). Manchester coding has the advantage of enabling data to be transmitted without the need for an extra clocking signal.
The transport layer protocols used for real time multimedia, file transfer, DNS and email respectively are
(a) TCP, UDP, UDP and TCP
(b) UDP, TCP, TCP and UDP
(c) UDP, TCP, UDP and TCP
(d) TCP, UDP, TCP and UDP
Explanation: Real Time Multimedia: Data packets should be delivered faster. Also it can be unreliable. Therefore UDP.
File Transfer: For example downloading a file. It should be secure and reliable. Therefore TCP.
DNS: uses both UDP and TCP for its transport. But to achieve efficiency DNS uses UDP. To start a TCP connection a minimum of three packets are required (SYN out, SYN+ACK back, ACK out). UDP uses a simple transmission model with a minimum of protocol mechanism. UDP has no handshaking dialogues.
Email: uses SMTP protocol which uses TCP protocol. Standard applications using UDP include:
Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP)
Domain Name System (DNS) name server
Remote Procedure Call (RPC), used by the Network File System (NFS)
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNM P)
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
TCP is utilized extensively by
World Wide Web (WWW)
File Transfer Protocol
Peer-to-Peer file sharing
One of the header fields in an IP datagram is the Time to Live (TTL) field. Which of the following statements best explains the need for this field?
(a) It can be used to priortize packets
(b) It can be used to reduce delays
(c) It can be used to optimize throughput
(d) It can be used to prevent packet looping
In the slow start phase of the TCP congestion control algorithm, the size of the congestion window
(a) does not increase (b) increases linearly
(c) increases quadratically (d) increases exponentially
Ans: option (d)
Which of the following system calls results in the sending of SYN packets?
(a) socket (b) bind (c) listen (d) connect
Ans: option (d)
The protocol data unit(PDU) for the application layer in the Internet stack is
(a) Segment (b) Datagram (c) Message (d) Frame
PDU for Application Layer - Message
PDU for Internet Layer - Datagram
PDU for Transport Layer - Segment
PDU for Link Layer – Frame
Which of the following transport layer protocols is used to support electronic mail?
(a) SM TP (b) IP (c) TCP (d) UDP
Explanation: Application Layer protocol for sending email is SM TP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). SM TP is a connection oriented protocol; therefore it uses TCP at Transport Layer.
IP - It is a network layer protocol.
UDP - is a connection-less transport layer protocol.
