SHORT ANSWER 41. ANS: The following are advantages of using traditional peer-to-peer networks: They are simple to configure. For this reason, they may be used in environments in which time or technical expertise is scarce. They are often less expensive to set up and maintain than other types of networks. This fact makes them suitable for environments in which saving money is critical. PTS: 1 REF: 4 42. ANS: The following are disadvantages of using traditional peer-to-peer networks: They are not very flexible. As a peer-to-peer network grows larger, adding or changing significant elements of the network may be difficult. They are also not necessarily secure - meaning that in simple installations, data and other resources shared by network users can be easily discovered and used by unauthorized people. They are not practical for connecting more than a handful of computers, because they do not always centralize resources. PTS: 1 43. ANS: REF: 4

An NOS is a special type of software designed to do the following: Manage data and other resources for a number of clients. Ensure that only authorized users access the network. Control which type of files a user can open and read. Restrict when and from where users can access the network. Dictate which rules computers will use to communicate. Supply applications to clients. PTS: 1 REF: 5-6 44. ANS: Although client/server networks are typically more complex in their design and maintenance than peer-topeer networks, they offer many advantages over peer-to-peer networks, such as: User logon accounts and passwords for anyone on a server-based network can be assigned in one place. Access to multiple shared resources (such as data files or printers) can be centrally granted to a single user or groups of users. Problems on the network can be monitored, diagnosed, and often fixed from one location. Servers are optimized to handle heavy processing loads and dedicated to handling requests from clients, enabling faster response time. Because of their efficient processing and larger disk storage, servers can connect more than a handful of computers on a network. Together, these advantages make client/server networks easier to manage, more secure, and more powerful than peer-to-peer networks. They are also more scalable - that is, they can be more easily added onto and extended - than peer-to-peer networks. PTS: 1 REF: 6 45. ANS: License tracking determines how many copies of a single application are currently in use on the network and ensures that number does not exceed the number of licenses purchased. This information is important for legal reasons, as software companies are vigilant about illegally copying software or using more than the authorized number of copies. PTS: 1 REF: 15 46. ANS: Aspiring network professionals also should acquire these skills: Installing, configuring, and troubleshooting network server software and hardware Installing, configuring, and troubleshooting network client software and hardware Understanding the characteristics of different transmission media Understanding network design Understanding network protocols Understanding how users interact with the network Constructing a network with clients, servers, media, and connectivity devices PTS: 1 REF: 16 47. ANS: The following specialties are currently in high demand: Network security Convergence (the delivery of voice, video, and data over a single network)

In-depth knowledge about one or more NOSs: UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 Network management Internet and intranet design Configuration and optimization of routers and switches Centralized data storage and management for large-scale environments

PTS: 1 REF: 16 48. ANS: The term soft skills refers to those skills that are not easily measurable, such as customer relations, oral and written communications, dependability, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Some of these soft skills might appear to be advantages in any profession, but they are especially important when you must work in teams, in challenging technical circumstances, and under tight deadlines - requirements that apply to most networking projects. PTS: 1 REF: 17 49. ANS: Following are a list of benefits to becoming certified: Better salary - Professionals with certification can usually ask for higher salaries than those who arent certified. Employers will also want to retain certified employees, especially if they helped pay for their training, and will offer incentives to keep certified professionals at the company. Greater opportunities - Certification may qualify you for additional degrees or more advanced technical positions. Professional respect - After you have proven your skills with a product or system, your colleagues and clients will gain great respect for your ability to solve problems with that system or product. They will therefore feel confident asking you for help. Access to better support - Many manufacturers reward certified professionals with less expensive, more detailed, and more direct access to their technical support. PTS: 1 REF: 18 50. ANS: Among other things, you will want to consider the organizations number of members, membership benefits, membership dues, technical emphasis, and whether it hosts a local chapter. Many organizations host student chapters on university campuses. You may also want to find a professional association that caters to your demographic group (such as Women in Technology International, if you are female). PTS: 1 REF: 20
