Correct Answer :

The end-user device needs mobility when connecting to the network.

Explanation :

Refer to curriculum topic: 4.1.1
When the end-user devices need mobility to connect to the network, wireless is recommended. If an end-user device only has an Ethernet NIC, the user will only be able to use Ethernet cabling. If RFI is an issue, wireless is not recommended. An end-user device that requires a dedicated connection for performance would perform better with a dedicated Ethernet cable.

 

Problem 13

Question :

Which statement describes a characteristic of the frame header fields of the data link layer?

Problem 17

Question :

Which two factors influence the method that is used for media access control? (Choose two.)

Answer Option Choices :

how data is generated by end devices applications

 

how the connection between nodes appears to the data link layer
how signals are encoded by the NICs on end devices​
how nodes share the media 
how the IP protocol forwards the packet to the destination

Correct Answer :

how the connection between nodes appears to the data link layer
how nodes share the media

Explanation :

Refer to curriculum topic: 4.4.1
The media access control method used depends on the topology (how the connection between the nodes appears to the data link layer), and how the nodes share the media. The type of data generated by end devices applications, the way signals are encoded by the NICs on end devices, and even the way the IP protocol forwards the packet through the network have no influence on the choice of the method used for media access control.
