Comparision of data rate of the transmission line and disk

Imagine that you have trained your St. Bernard, Bernie, to carry a box of three 8mm tapes instead of a flask of brandy. (When your disk fills up, you consider that an emergency) These tapes each contains 7 gigabytes. The dog can travel to your side, wherever you may be, at 18 km/hour. For what range of distances does Bernie have a higher data rate than a transmission line whose data rate (excluding overhead) is 150 Mbps?

Solution Preview

Capacity of each 8mm tapes = 7 gigabytes.                 
    Then the capacity of 3 (three) 8mm tapes                                        
       = 3x7  gigabytes                              
       = 21 gigabytes                             

Solution Summary

This solution explains the problems of finding the data rate of transmission of the transmission line and that of the capacity of a disk. The solution is given in detail. This is mainly for solving the problem of transmission of data and that of disk capacity in computer science.

A company in an office park has two locations next to each other, with over 5,000 computers in each office space. Each office has about 17 floors and thousands of employees. They want to connect the two offices so that each one is accessible.

What solution would you offer? These offices do not need Internet connection, just internal, and in order for them to be able to communicate with each other, the network data packets need to route between the offices.


? Discuss the characteristics of Internet, wireless and local area networks

? identify various hardware components and network topologies

? Explain the different routing algorithms

I have already started and its attached bellow.

Please fix all the missing parts specailly what network (topology, WAN, LAN, VLAN, ETC and should they use bridges, hubs, or switches) would you offer?

Thank you in advance
