Introducing the Domain Name System (DNS)
The process of obtaining an IP address for a computer name (for example, “ComputerA”) is called name resolution.

Introducing Network Access Protection (NAP)
Network Access Protection is a new feature in Windows Server 2008 that allows network administrators to specify one or more policies that define the conditions under which network access will or will not be permitted.

Introducing TCP/IP Addressing
IPv4 addresses are commonly represented using what is called dotted-decimal notation, in which the decimal value of each byte is shown, using periods to separate the bytes.
Introducing IP version 6 (IPv6)
IPv6 address notation is noticeably different from the dotted-decimal of IPv4, using eight groups of four hexadecimal digits, separated by colons. IPv6 includes a few other enhancements for performance and security. Notably, IP security through the use of IPSec is an integral part of IPv6, whereas it was an optional feature under IPv4

Bonus questions from lab work:
4 Byte – 8 bits
84 Essentially, link refers to any cable between two devices, and node refers to any device.
77 HTTP, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, defines the rules by which a web browser can ask for a web page from a web server, and the rules a web server uses to send the web page back to the web browser.
107 Every standard has two important features on which this book will focus. First, a standard documents ideas. Those ideas are the ideas that matter to anyone creating products to put in a network, or ideas that matter to people building a network.
107 Beyond the ideas in a standard, people must agree to a particular version of document.
110 The TCP/IP model organizes its standards into layers. The layers make TCP/IP easier for humans to understand what TCP/IP does. It also makes it easier to divide the work among different products. * - write protocols, - create standards, - how networks work*

...Business Policy Final Exam Review
1: Strategic Management: set of managerial decisions and actions that determines the long-run performance of a corporation. It includes environmental scanning (both external and internal), strategy formulation (strategic or long-range planning), strategy implementation and evaluation and control. Emphasize the monitoring and evaluating of external opportunities and threats in light of a corporations strengths and weaknesses.
2: 4 phases of strategic management:
Phase 1- basic financial management- managers initiate serious planning when they are requested to propose the following years budget. Projects are proposed on the basis of very little analysis, with most information coming from within the firm. The sales force usually provides the small amount of environmental information.
Phase 2: forecast- based planning- as annual budgets become less useful at stimulating long-term planning, managers attempt to propose five-year plans. At this point they consider projects that they may take more than one year. In addition to internal information managers gather any available environmental data- usually on an ad hoc basis and extrapolate current trends five years into the future. This phase is also time consuming, often involving a full month of managerial activity to make sure all the proposed budgets fit together.
Phase 3: externally oriented planning- frustrated with highly political yet ineffectual five-year...
