The following network components and functions should be matched to these corresponding descriptions:
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/Internet Protocol (IP): TCP/IP is a suite of data communication protocols.
Router: Separates broadcast domains while connecting different networks. Routers also provide a medium for connecting Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network segments.
Layer 2 switching: Performed using a destination MAC address within a frame. In Layer 2 switching, switching is based on Media Access Control (MAC) addresses.
Hierarchical model: Enables the designing of internetworks into layers. There are three layers in the hierarchical network design:
– Core layer: Provides high-speed data transfer between sites.
– Distribution layer: Includes LAN-based routers and Layer 3 switches and enables routing between Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs).
– Access layer: Provides workgroup and end-user access, and is also referred to as the desktop layer.
