Routing and Switching Selection Criteria

Can you please review the attached document and answer each of the bulletined questions with at least a paragraph and a half each? Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I have just posted the questions below… since my document shows pending update for the attachment.

Routing and Switching Selection Criteria. Please respond to the following: • Compare and contrast distance-vector and link state routing, and analyze the limitations that would prevent the usage of each. • Choose the method best suited for designing a new routing protocol for a LAN architecture. Justify your decision.

Transmission Medium. Please respond to the following: • Suggest a way to improve the way LLC and MAC are used for LAN operation. • Evaluate guided and unguided transmission medium to determine which you would use to design a new facility.

Ethernet Options. Please respond to the following: • Compare the advantages of ATM and Gigabit Ethernet technologies as high-speed networking solutions. Describe how to migrate from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet, and to 10-Gbps Ethernet. • Compare and contrast the advantages of Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and 10-Gbps Ethernet.

Wireless LAN. Please respond to the following: • Analyze the characteristics of wireless LANs and assess the security concerns of this technology in organizations such as universities or hospitals. Identify additional areas of concern for organizations that implement a wireless LAN. Then, explain whether the implementation of a WAN would solve these problems. Explain your rationale. • Rank the following IEEE 802.11 standard addresses in order of importance with the first one being the most important. Justify the reason for your chosen order. o Association o Re-association o Disassociation o Authentication

Circuit Packet Switching and VPNs. Please respond to the following: • From the e-Activity (listed below*), analyze at least one major advantage of private networks and the impact it creates for a communication technology organization. Be sure to provide your source either as an article or URL. • From the e-Activity, compare three VPN services available to organizations to determine the primary differences among each. Discuss the pros and cons of each VPN service and suggest the type of organization that would best fit each network provider.

*E-Activity- Research the Internet for an article, publication, or other electronic document written in the last 12 months that discusses the advantages of private networks and the leading VPN services available to organizations.

ATM and Frame Relay. Please respond to the following: • Compare the advantages and disadvantages of ATM to those of frame relay. Recommend the superior technology and explain your rationale. • Suppose you are in charge of selecting ATM or frame relay as a WAN alternative for your technological needs of a communication technology organization. Choose one of the WAN alternatives and justify your decision.
