Which wireless network topology would be used by network engineers to provide a wireless network for an entire college building?
- ad hoc
- mixed mode
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Ad hoc mode (also known as independent basic service set or IBSS) is used in a peer-to-peer wireless network such as when Bluetooth is used. A variation of the ad hoc topology exists when a smart phone or tablet with cellular data access is enabled to create a personal wireless hotspot. Mixed mode allows older wireless NICs to attach to an access point that can use a newer wireless standard.
