CIS 505 Discussion Question 1 Week 2, Mainframes

Take a position on the following statement, “Mainframe computers are still needed even though personal computers and workstations have increased in capabilities.” Defend your position by providing at least one example to support your position.  Are mainframe computers still needed? You bet they are I will give you one really good reason why they are. With the increasing number of people online, increasing speeds increased bandwidths that make increased requests to enterprises. For example, let’s look at credit card giant Visa. Visa probably handles over 120,00 transactions every second. It is imperative that government, universities, and commercial businesses of all sizes keep up with this demand and with the number of small servers that it would require to do this it just would not be feasible. ….

Analyze the differences between distributed data processing and centralized data processing. Provide an example of each. Then compare each to the processing used in cloud computing.

CIS 505 Discussion Question 2 Week 2, Circuit Switching and Packet Switching

  • Cite two examples of a circuit switch and packet switch environment. Base one example on a circuit switch and the other on a packet switch.
  • Describe the trade-off between the two technologies and the reason why packet switching is more appropriate for the internet

CIS 505 Week 3 Discussion 1, IPv6 Adoption

  • Take a position on the idea of IPv6 being hailed as the next generation of the internet. Support your response with evidence or examples.
  • Critique the adoption and development of IPv6, and determine the security and networking issues associated with this process.

CIS 505 Week 3 Discussion 2, Fat Clients and Servers

  • Provide a scenario in which the use of fat servers would be preferred over the use of fat clients. Describe why fat servers, rather than fat clients, should be used in your scenario. 
  • Compare the pros and cons of Intranets to those of the Internet from an organizational perspective. Suggest one way to integrate the two and the benefits this may bring.

CIS 505 Week 4 Discussion 1, HTTP and HTPPS

  • Analyze the current uses of HTTP and HTTPS, and predict the future outlook for both protocols. Describe any foreseen changes in the frequency or way each protocol is used.
  • Identify the various uses for HTTP and HTTPS, and justify the use of one over the other. Include two examples to demonstrate the use of each protocol.

CIS 505 Week 4 Discussion 2, Elastic and Inelastic

  • Provide three examples of inelastic traffic not discussed in the text and validate their inclusion as inelastic.
  • Analyze the characteristics of elastic traffic to determine why this is used on the Internet

CIS 505 Week 5 Discussion 1, Routing and Switching Selection Criteria.

  • Compare 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.

CIS 505 Week 5 Discussion 2, Transmission Medium

  • 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.

CIS 505 Week 6 Discussion 1, Ethernet Options

  • 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.

CIS 505 Week 6 Discussion 2, Wireless LAN

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.

    • Association
    • Re-association
    • Disassociation
    • Authentication
