Q: WAN Basics
WAN connections span much longer distances than LANs – so what happens in that WAN? Even for CCENT and CCNA, you can understand some of the basic facts about how a WAN service provider builds a WAN connection. This next sample question asks about just that.
Both sites shown in the figure have a small number of devices located on one floor of a single building. The sites, a few hundred miles apart, connect with an Ethernet WAN service. Which are accurate when comparing the Ethernet LANs and WAN in this small network?
A) The data link frame that crosses the WAN uses the PCs’ MAC addresses
B) The WAN physical link likely uses fiber optic cabling
C) The WAN physical link likely uses UTP copper cabling
D) The WAN link uses a header that combines HDLC and Ethernet
