Optimizing TCP/IP Design for performance(Intro)

The performance of a TCP/IP network is set at a base level by the underlying physical network topology.
You can enhance the TCP/IP performance for particular applications by creating a dynamic design strategy that takes into consideration subnet and remote subnet design[1] , IP performance, and QoS[2] . This module will describe the individual components of an optimized network design and explore how these components work together to maximize your network's capacity. By the end of this module, you will be able to:
  1. Define the methods of optimizing the number of available IP addresses
  2. Define how to optimize IP performance on a network
  3. Determine the number of subnets and IP addresses used by remote network segments
  4. Define how QoS enhances network performance
  5. Define the process of setting up QoS connections

Question: Which OSI layer provides security, encryption, and compression for the data?
Answer: Layer 6, the presentation layer/
The next lesson explores how to optimize subnet designs.
[1]remote subnet design: A subnet specifically designed with the intention of being accessed from or operated on from a remote location over a distributed network.
[2]Quality of Service (QoS) : Quality of Service (QoS) consists of technologies that work on a network to guarantee its ability to run high-priority applications and traffic under limited network capacity. QoS technologies accomplish this by providing differentiated handling and capacity allocation to specific flows in network traffic.
