LABSHEET 6: TRANSMISSION MEDIA
1. Identify the following scenario either fiber optic or copper (UTP). (Fiber/Copper) a. A Company must provide network connectivity between three buildings on a single campus. The cables must be run outside and there is a high probability of lightning storms in the area. Fiber. b. A company must provide network connectivity between two buildings located 1 km apart. Fiber. c. A company must provide 100 Mbps connectivity to users located in their main office by running the central switch to the individual desktops. The maximum distance from the switch to a workstation is 60 meters. Copper. 2. Identify the following scenario is a cabling best practice or not. (Yes / No) a. In an effort to prevent people from tripping over cables, Charles ran the cables through the false ceiling over fluorescent lights. No. b. Yasmin labeled all cables and recorded their location as she installed them. Yes. c. Damon decided to follow T568A termination cabling standard for all straight-through cabling needs in his network. No. d. Samuru needed to connect a device to the network. She located a bunch of old, hand-terminated cables in a drawer. Assuming the cables were good, she selected one and connected her device. No.
3. Identify the color for the wiring schemes T568A and T568B. PIN
4. Identify type of cable use for the following device connections. (Straightthrough / Cross-over) a. Switch to router = Straight-through. b. Switch to switch = Cross-over. c. Switch to PC = Straight-through. d. Router to PC = Cross-over. e. Hub to PC = Straight-through. f. PC to PC = Cross-over. 5. In the spaces provided, write the cable type (UTP Cat.5, Thin Coaxial, or Fiber Optic) that matches the specification or network. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
