02 - Types of Networks

 1. Network topologies include bus, star, ring and mesh.

  FALSE

  TRUE

 2. This type of network has one central message-switching device through which all the other devices communicate.

  Bus Network

  Mesh Network

  Ring Network

  Star Network

 3. In this system, a single cable called the 'bus' is used, to which the work stations are connected along its length.

  Ring Network

  Star Network

  Bus Network

  Mesh Network

 4. The advantages of a bus network include that it is scalable (easy to add new nodes) and relatively ___________

  expensive

  insecure

  secure

  inexpensive

 5. The star topology is popular particularly because it is comparitively inexpensive (compared to a bus) to implement.

  TRUE

  FALSE

 6. Peer to peer networks are those where there is no ______________________

  client machine

  email communication

  central server

  bus network involved

 7. In a peer to peer network every client machine has ________________

  no rights

  access to the same central server

  the same rights

  the same central server management

 8. In a peer to peer network, one of the main advantages is the presence of a clear central management system.

  True

  False

 9. Small networks are usually peer to peer as the cost of maintenance does not warrant the expense of a client-server base.

  FALSE

  TRUE

 10. Server based networking is also known as __________________________

  server to base networking

  peer to peer networking

  client-server networking

  peer to server networking

 11. In server based networking, security is ______________

  centralised

  decentralised

  divided up into layers, and is generally considered inefficient as it is not centralised

  non existent

 12. In a client-server network, it is the client machines that hold all the data and main functionality

  TRUE

  FALSE

 13. In a peer to peer network, it is possible for an organisation to control access to data much more effectively and securely as compared to a client-server network.

  FALSE

  TRUE

 14. WI-FI is a high-bandwidth wireless method of communication which can be used in place of, or in combination with, wired Ethernet networks.

  TRUE

  FALSE

 15. The internet is often wrongly referred to as a network. It is actually a collection of web pages and not a network at all.

  FALSE

  TRUE
