Q #2) What is Network Topology?
A-Network topology is known as the arrangement of networking devices in a systematic way like arranging computer, printer, etc.
Q #3) What is a Node in computer network?
A-In a network all the devices are connected with each other through a transmission medium like cables. The node is known as the point where all the cables get connected.
Q #4) What are Routers in computer network?
A-Router is an internetworking device which connects one network with another network.
The router works in both local area network and wide area network.
Q #5) What is Hub in computer network?

Q #6) What is Switch in computer network?
A-Switch is a multi-port bridge. The switch has individual paths for every connected device. It maintains a Content Addressable Memory(CAM) table to store the port number and MAC address of every connected device.
Q #7) What is the OSI reference model?
A-OSI reference Model is known as Open System Interconnection. It is the reference model which defines how to communicate between the devices of a network.
Q #8) What is TCP?
A-Its full form is Transmission Control Protocol. TCP transmits data in the form of packets. During transmission, if any data packets lost then TCP will request to the sender for resending the data packet.
Q #9) What is HTTP?

Q #15) What is Data Encapsulation?
A– In a network, data are sent or received in the form of packets. After that with the help of the OSI model, the IP header is added to the data packets.
Then Data Link Layer encapsulates those packets which contain the destination device address.
