It determines the best path to send packets.*
It manages the VLAN database.
It increases the size of the broadcast domain.
15. A network engineer is reviewing a network design that uses a fixed configuration enterprise router that supports both LAN and WAN connections. However, the engineer realizes that the router does not have enough interfaces to support growth and network expansion. Which type of device should be used as a replacement?
a Layer 3 switch
a modular router*
a PoE device
another fixed configuration router

Which command was issued on a Cisco switch that resulted in the exhibited output?
show vlan brief
show port-security address*
show vlan summary
19. What is a characteristic of in-band device management?
It uses a terminal emulation client.
It is used for initial configuration or when a network connection is unavailable.
It uses a direct connection to a console or AUX port.
It is used to monitor and make configuration changes to a network device over a network connection.*
20. Which two requirements must always be met to use in-band management to configure a network device? (Choose two.)
a direct connection to the console port
a direct connection to the auxiliary port
a terminal emulation client
at least one network interface that is connected and operational*
