The OSI data link layer is responsible for physical addressing, network topology, error notification, sequencing of frames and flow control. IEEE has defined numerous protocols used with TCP/IP at the OSI data link layer. They are called the IEEE 802 Standards. Choose one of these IEEE 802 standards and discuss with your classmates the types of network devices and media that you would use to implement the standards in your network. In other words, which network elements would be necessary for the standard you described? Which topology would be represented using these technologies? Finally, discuss collisions relative to this environment.

Enterprise Networks: Bus or Star Topology

Let's say that your company is in the process of upgrading the network infrastructure, which involves moving from a 10BaseT to 100BaseT network. Currently, they use bus topology in the network. As a member of the data network team, you are asked to take care of a portion of this upgrade. And, you would also like to suggest they move from Bus topology to Star topology.

- Justify your suggestion to update to Star topology?
- What updates you would have about network hardware in order to move to 100BaseT?
- How would you provide the best desktop connectivity for end users, and the fastest possible throughput and security for the payroll department?

In addition, decide what type of devices to use in the closet. also can you please provide enough detail to fully support your opinion and any arguments.
