    ... etwork). (Stallings, 213) The largest problem with SNMP, ironically enough, is the same thing that made it great; its simple design. Because it is so simple, the information it deals with is neither detailed, nor well organized enough to deal with the growing networks of the 1990s. This is mainly due to the quick creation of SNMP, because it was never designed to be the network management protocol of the 1990s. Like the previous flaw, this one too has been corrected with the new version, SNMPv2. This new version allows for more in-detail specification of variables, including the use of the table data structure for easier data retrieval. Also added are two new PDUs that are used to manipu ...

  • Dsl Vs Cable - 1,452 words
    Dsl Vs Cable Cable Modems and ADSL Two modem technologies have emerged over the past year for switched data communications services. Cable Modems operate over two-way hybrid fiber/coax and provide user rates as high as 10 Mbps. ADSL Modems (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Lines) operate over existing copper telephone lines and provide rates as high as 9 Mbps. Both technologies address the large markets for Internet access, remote LAN access for work at home and telecommuting, and network access for the hundreds of millions of personal computers in place today and to be sold over the next ten years. Cable modems may offer more raw speed than ADSL, but that advantage is compromised by inevitable ...

    ... e system was to provide direct access to a real commercial RDBMS via the same interface as the educational course. The relational DBMS is seamlessly integrated into the student educational desktop. Thus the tool bar offered by the VSD contains an icon which allows students to issue SQL queries on a live database. The idea of this is to deliberately blur the distinction between the educational environment and the target systems. This encourages students to try out various parts of the course before attempting a larger project. Another feature was the ability of the student to store references to distinct locations in the course material (bookmarks). Traditionally these are stored locally ...
