What does the Cisco PSIRT issue for significant security issues that directly involve Cisco products and require an upgrade, fix, or other customer action?
Cisco Security Advisories
What should be done with unused conductors in copper unshielded or shielded twisted-pair network cables?
terminate in their characteristic impedance
Which two reasons make mesh bonding systems most effective? (Choose two.)
provide low-impedance noise-equalizing paths
create equipotential grounding systems
A router is not operating as expected and the network administrator wants to verify that the router booted using the correct IOS image. Which command should be used to determine which IOS is running on the router?
What two things does a router do when it forwards a packet? (Choose two.)
switches the packet to the appropriate outgoing interfaces
determines the next hop on the path
How does the optical time domain reflectometer use "backscattered" light to make measurements?
It correlates the returned light pulses with a location in the fiber.
Which parameter would you tune to affect the selection of a static route as a backup, when a dynamic protocol is also being used?
Which prompt is used to configure parameters for the Ethernet ports of an industrial switch?
An administrator has connected devices to an industrial switch and, for security reasons, wants the dynamically learned MAC addresses from the address table added to the running configuration. What must be done to accomplish this?
Enable port security and use the keyword sticky.
What is the most critical step to perform when you are using optical fiber connectors?
Cover with dust caps when not in use.
What is a reason to use privileged EXEC mode on an industrial switch?
to verify commands that you have entered
What are two benefits of a star network topology? (Choose two.)
Disruption of the entire network is not required when adding new machines.
Any problem which leaves the network inoperable can be traced to the central hub.
What is the purpose of a time domain reflectometer?
It uses pulses to locate and test for sheath faults, damaged conductors, loose connectors, splices, bridge taps, split pairs, and other problems.
What are two benefits that are provided by proper grounding and bonding systems? (Choose two.)
safe discharge of electrostatic energy
equipotential termination points for equipment and cable shields
At which Layer would you check ACLs for TCP ports being blocked?
Which option allows an EtherNet/IP I/O device to be safely installed where it is subject to water immersion?
The device is rated IP67 and a power cordset is used.
You are a called upon to troubleshoot connectivity problems to a network device on a production floor. You have used ping and traceroute to verify that you cannot connect to the device from the management network. The network is 18.104.22.168/27 and the device has been given the IP address 22.214.171.124 and mask 255.255.255.224. You have verified that you can reach the device with your computer connected to the same switch as the device. What could be the cause of this problem?
The device has no IP default gateway.
Which two commands can help you to determine what image is running on your industrial switch? (Choose two.)
In which two ways could you minimize the impact of monitoring an industrial network? (Choose two.)
Make a copy of all the network traffic and analyze it offline.
Use an industrial-network-grade IDS-IPS system.
With a Cisco IE 2000 switch, what does a port status LED indicate when it is solid amber?
The port is not forwarding.
What is the leading cause of fiber-optic link failure?
With what are APC connectors used?
single-mode fiber-optic cables to reduce return loss
With a Cisco IE 2000 switch, what does a port status LED indicate when it is alternating green and amber?
There is a link fault.
What are two symptoms of duplex mismatch? (Choose two.)
Communication is slow and locks up.
The half-duplex side sees frame sequence errors or runt frames.
At which Layer would you check for spanning tree loops?
What do deflections indicate to the time domain reflectometer user?
Upward deflections indicate high-impedance mismatches or opens, and downward deflections indicate shorts or low-impedance mismatches.
What is the purpose of Spanning Tree Protocol?
to maintain a loop-free Layer 2 network topology
What are the two most relevant factors in determining the class of administration that is required to maintain the telecommunications infrastructure? (Choose two.)
the size of the infrastructure
the complexity of the infrastructure
You are troubleshooting a connectivity problem and want to isolate the problem. You suspect that a router on the route to an unreachable network is at fault. Which command would you issue to see where the packets stop?
At which Layer would you troubleshoot a cabling issue?
The network administrator is using a Windows PC application that is called putty.exe for remote communication to a switch for network troubleshooting. Which two protocols could be used during this communication? (Choose two).
Given a ring topology, which loop prevention mechanism provides the fastest reconvergence time after a link failure?
Resilient Ethernet Protocol
EtherNet/IP is an Ethernet implementation of which protocol?
Which two pieces of information are commonly tracked as part of a change management process? (Choose two.)
reason for the change
names of people involved in the change
What is a characteristic of cables that are used in articulating equipment arms?
high flex rated cable
With a Cisco IE 2000 switch, what does a power status LED indicate when it is solid green?
Power is present on the associated circuit and the system is operating normally.
Why is SSH preferred over Telnet as a method of accessing a network device to alter or view the configuration?
SSH encrypts the login and session information.
Which option best describes a mechanical, ingress, climatic, chemical and electromagnetic environment that is classified as M3 I3 C3 E3?
According to the Purdue Reference Model, at which layer would you perform manufacturing operations and control?
At which Layer would you use trace route to validate the path?
What is a reason to use user EXEC mode on an industrial switch?
to change terminal settings
Which protocol is a secure alternative to Telnet?
