Upon completion of this chapter, you will be able to perform the following tasks:
Identify and connect the necessary components to enable connectivity between routers or switches.
Identify and connect the necessary components to enable WAN connectivity over serial or ISDN BRI connections.
Set up console connections among routers, switches, and a terminal.
Document the physical topology, including cable types and cable locations, of each internetworking device.

Physical Data-Link (MAC Layer) LAN Physical Layer Implementations
Physical layer implementations vary.
Some implementations support multiple physical media.

Positioning Ethernet in the Campus Access Layer Distribution Layer Core Layer Ethernet 10BaseT Position Fast Ethernet Position Access Layer Distribution Layer Core Layer Provides connectivity between the end-user device and the access switch. Not typically used at this layer. Gives high-performance PC and workstations 100-Mbps access to the server. Provides connectivity between access and distribution layers. Provides connectivity from the distribution to core layer. Provides connectivity from the server block to the core layer. Provides inter-switch connectivity. Not typically used at this layer.

UTP Implementation of Straight-Through Versus Crossover
Use a crossover cable when BOTH ports are designated with an “x” or neither port is designated with an “x.”
Use straight-through when only one port is designated with an “x.”

Cabling the Campus
Determine the physical media used: 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps.
Indicates what category of cable is required
Locating interfaces on the chassis, determine if one or both ports have an “x.”
Indicates if you need crossover or straight-through cable

Cabling Routers for ISDN Connections
Determine if you need a BRI S/T or U Interface.
Routers have one or both types of port.
Note port label.
Cabling Routers for ISDN Connections (cont.) !!!WARNING!!! Do not connect a cable to an ISDN port unless it is from an ISDN switch or ISDN wall jack. If you connect a cable from any other device to the BRI port, you will ruin the non-ISDN device. Cisco Router ISDN BRI Port
PCs require an RJ-45-to-DB-9 or RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter.
COM port settings are 9600 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control.
This provides out-of-band console access.
AUX switch port may be used for a modem-connected console.
