I am an IT student. As a part of my class project, I need to interview a Network Administrator the following questions.

1. Does your network user Ethernet, Token Ring, or both?
2. What transmission speed dose your network use?
3. On what type of backbone does your network rely?
4. What type of wiring does your network use? Do you use the same type of wiring for the backbone as you do for connecting workstations?
5. Do you use WAN technologies? If so, in what kind of a topology are your separate locations arranged?
6. If you had all the money you wanted in your budget, what type of upgrades would you make to your network? If you only had enough money for one, which would it be?

Your response would be much appreciated.

1)  Ethernet ( its faster then the other 2 )
2) Usually 100Mbps
3) Mostly Ethernet
4) we have an ethernet backbone in the offices with Private T1's to our central office from there we have a DS3 to the Internet (  the DS3 is coax to Fibel Channel )
5) Yes the DS3 to the internet and we have 6 offices connected to the central office with Private T1's ( Point-to-Point) then in each office it is ethernet to the workstations what they would call a "Star " Topology in the offices we use cisco switch, routers, and firewalls..
6) all the money would be nice.. i would upgrade all offices to DS3's to the central office then from the central office to the net an OC192 would be Nice :-)
if only 1 upgrade... 1 of our offices is pretty far awa ( over 2k miles ) I would upgrade the fraction T1 to a full T1...
