CCDA FAQ: Building a Prototype or Pilot
Q1. Which type of test plan is more appropriate for a network solution that involves a small network in which the client needs a demonstration of a basic function such as the security features on a firewall?
Q2. What is the next step involved in developing a prototype after a test plan has been developed?
Q3. Identify the step of the prototype development plan that includes tasks such as drawing a network and developing a list of tests.
Q4. True or False: Both the prototype and the pilot require you to understand and review the competition’s implementation plans.
Q5. Which type of test plan requires less planning and fewer resources?
Q6. Which tool could you use to avoid having to perform the test yourself?
Q7. At what stage of the pilot would the designer identify the weaknesses of the competition’s product, such as scalability issues?
Q8. How does the designer ensure that the prototype will meet the expectations of a client?
Q9. Which tool can be used to test security and capture data during the testing phase of both the pilot and the prototype?
Q10. What two IOS commands can be used to troubleshoot connectivity?
Q11. Your design included multiple VLANS with similar configurations and services. The customer requested confirmation that the design is fully functional. What type of testing program would you recommend, and why?
Q12. What type of testing would require more resources, including higher costs and more complexity?
Q13. What stage of the prototype testing requires that you showcase the strength of Cisco’s products and the areas in which the competitor’s products are not as strong?
Q14. When determining the customer’s requirements for prototype testing, what are the four areas that should be included when making the determination?
Q15. What tool can you use during testing to provide detailed information on the protocols and traffic on the network?
Q16. During the practice of the pilot script, you realize that your protocol analyzer is showing that unwanted traffic is passing from an unsecured segment to your internal network. What IOS command would you use on the router to begin troubleshooting this problem?
Q17. After scripting the demonstration for the client, what is the next step in the pilot testing program that would need to be implemented to ensure a smooth presentation?
Q18. If the client wanted a demonstration of the connectivity between segments and routing information, which IOS commands would you use during the testing?
Q19. If you are using an access list and wanted to test the security, what product could you use to demonstrate its effectiveness?
Q20. How would you demonstrate your findings to your customer during the prototype testing?
