Question: Why is OSI model layered?

Answer: It provides an structural approach to troubleshoot an issue.

Question: What is the differnce between Unshielded twisted pair(UTP) and Shielded twisted pair(STP) ?

Answer: The most commonly used form of twisted pair is unshielded twisted pair (UTP). It is just two insulated wires twisted together. any data communication cables and normal telephone cables are this type. Shielded twisted pair(STP) differs from UTP in that it has a foil jacket that helps prevent crosstalk and noise from outside source. In data communications there is a cable type called FTP (foil shielded pairs) which consists of four twisted pair inside one common shield (made of aluminium foil). Source:
Question: What is the difference between L3 Switch and Router, If they Perform the same function why we need both of them?

Answer: Layer 3 switches do routing with ASIC chips. Routers do it with a microprocesor and its associated software. Therefore the Layer 3 switches are much faster than traditional routers, but cost more. We need them both because in many situations a slow router is sufficient and cheaper than a gigabit layer 3 switch router. Source:
Question: Why we use cross cable to connect same devices?

Answer: Same devices like PC-2-PC, it uses(NIC for PC) 1,2 for transmission & 3,6 for reception. If we don't use cross cable then we can't transfer data.

While in the case of switch/hub they receive (NIC of SWITCH/HUB)data on 1,2 & transmit on 3,6.

Thats why we use straight cable for de-similar host & cross cable for similar hosts. Source:
Question: piggy backing is a technique for
c)flow control

Question: What do you mean by Twisted-pair Cabling ?

Answer: A type of cable that consists of two independently insulated wires twisted around one another. The use of two wires twisted together helps to reduce crosstalk and electromagnetic induction. Source:
Question: How intervlan communication takes place in a layer 3 switch. Also the configuration details.

Answer: In Vlans every Vlan is assigned a Vlan Id and vlan to communicate require a Router between them as every Vlan is in different network .They can also have a Trunk configured so that there traffic can flow between them. Source:
Question: Which of the following involves context switch
a)privileged instruction
b)floating point exception
c)system calls

Answer: A context switch (also sometimes referred to as a process switch or a task switch) is the switching of the CPU (central processing unit) from one process or thread to another.

hence the answer is none Source:
Question: What is CIDR?

Answer: Classless Inter-Domain Routing
CIDR is a new addressing scheme for the Internet which allows for more efficient allocation of IP addresses than the old Class A, B, and C address scheme.
Question: What are the seven layers of the OSI model?

Answer: The layers are physical, data link, network, transport, session, presentation, and application layers. Source:
Question: What is multicast routing ?

Answer: Sending a message to a group is called multicasting, and its routing algorithm is called multicast routing. Source:
Question: What are the two types of OLTP?

Answer: TP lite, based on stored procedures. TP heavy, based on the TP monitors. Source:
Question: What is TCP/IP ? what is the use of TCP/IP?

Answer: Integrated Services refers to ISDN's ability to deliver at minimum two simultaneous connections, in any combination of data, voice, video, and fax, over a single line. Multiple devices can be attached to the line, and used as needed. That means an ISDN line can take care of most people's complete communications needs at a much higher transmission rate, without forcing the purchase of multiple analog phone lines.
