    b. switches that can efficiently forward traffic, even when every uplink is at 100 % capacity
    c. high port density of high-speed ports
    d. a low number of layer 3 routing peers
    b & c
  18. what is the benefit if using a hierarchical approach to network design?
    • It organizes the network into distinct layers that makes the network:
    • efficient
    • intelligent
    • scalable 
    • easily managed.
  19. what are the capabilities of the Access layer switches?
    • 1. low cost per switch port
    • 2. high port density
    • 3. scalable uplinks to higher layers
    • 4. user access functions such as VLAN membership, traffic and protocol filtering, and QOS
    • 5. resiliency through multiple uplinks
  20. what are the capabilities of the Distribution layer switches?
    • 1. aggregation of multiple access-layer devices
    • 2. high layer 3 throughput for packet handling
    • 3. security and policy-based connectivity functions through access lists or packet filters
    • 4. scalable and resilient high-speed links to the core and access layers
  21. what are the capabilities of the Core layer switches?
    • 1. very high throughput at layer 3
    • 2. no costly or unnecessary packet manipulations (ACL's or Packet Filtering)
    • 3. redundancy and resilience for high availability
    • 4. advanced QOS functions
  22. describe switch block redundancy.
    two access layer switches, each connected to one or more distro layer switches.
  23. What is the best practice designs for switch blocks?  (L2 and L3 traffic)
    L2 traffic should be contained in the access layer, and L3 traffic is in the distro and core layers.
  24. what are the 2 core block designs?
    collapsed core, and dual core.

    dual core is a separate 2 sw design separate from the switch block.

    collapsed core is where the distro switches also work as the core in smaller networks, providing core functionality between switch blocks.
