18. What is a primary purpose of encapsulating packets into frames?
- provide routes across the internetwork
- format the data for presentation to the user
- facilitate the entry and exit of data on media
- identify the services to which transported data is associated
19. What two facts are true when a device is moved from one network or subnet to another? (Choose two.)
- The Layer 2 address must be reassigned.
- The default gateway address should not be changed.
- The device will still operate at the same Layer 2 address.
- Applications and services will need additional port numbers assigned.
- The Layer 3 address must be reassigned to allow communications to the new network.
