VPN provides enhanced security and online anonymity to users on the internet. It is also used to unblock websites which are unavailable in certain regions.

3. Which of the following factors affect transmission rate in DSL?
(A) The gauge of the twisted-pair line
(B) Degree of electrical interfernece
(C) Shadow fading
(D) The gauge of the twisted-pair line and degree of electrical interference
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Because DSL is made of twisted wire copper pair, the gauge of twisted pair line i.e. the protection and electrical interference would affect the transmission rate in DSL. Unlike DSL, FTTP is not really affected by these factors.

4. In the OSI model, as a data packet moves from the lower to the upper layers, headers are _______
(A) Added
(B) Removed
(C) Rearranged
(D) Randomized
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: In OSI reference model, when data packet moves from lower layers to higher layer, headers get removed. Whereas when the data packet moves from higher layer to lower layers, headers are added. These headers contain the essential control information for the protocols used on the specific layer.

5. Which of the following statements can be associated with OSI model?
(A) A structured way to discuss and easier update system components
(B) One layer may duplicate lower layer functionality
(C) Functionality at one layer no way requires information from another layer
(D) It is an application specific network model
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: One layer may use the information from another layer, for example timestamp value. The information is contained in the header inserted by the previous layer. The headers are added as the packet moves from higher layers to the lower layers.
