Computer Communications: Architecturese
"Computer Communications: Architectures, Protocols, and Standards" Please respond to the following:
•Assess the significance of protocols and standards in computer systems. Determine one (1) standard and one (1) protocol that you believe to be the most important ones utilized today. Provide a rationale for your response.
•Compare and contrast client-server computing and cloud computing. Determine the major risks and rewards that each offers to the organizations that use such approaches. Justify your response.
"Data and Images" Please respond to the following:
•Lossless and lossy are the two (2) universally known categories of compression algorithms. Compare the two (2) categories of algorithms, and determine the major advantages and disadvantages of each. Provide one (1) example of a type of data for which each is best suited.
•BitMap and object (i.e., vector) are the two (2) categories of images. Compare the two (2) categories of images, and determine the advantages, and disadvantages of each. Provide one (1) example of type of file for which each is best suited.
•Use the Internet to research the various features of the Central Processing Units (CPU) of one (1) or two (2) computers. Be prepared to discuss.
•Select your preferred computer program planning technique, such as flowcharting or pseudocode. Use the Internet and Strayer Library to research whether or not the selected technique has proven to be successful. For example, take note of whether or not there has been any research that indicates labor hours and dollars that have been saved due to programs initially being written with a lower number of programming errors. Be prepared to discuss.
"CPUs and Programming" Please respond to the following:
•From the first e-Activity, identify the following CPUs: 1) the CPU that resides on a computer that you own or a computer that you would consider purchasing, and 2) the CPU of one (1) other computer. Compare the instruction sets and clock rates of each CPU. Determine which CPU of the two is faster and why. Conclude whether or not the clock rate by itself makes the CPU faster. Provide a rationale for your response.
•From the second e-Activity, examine two (2) benefits of using planning techniques—such as writing program flowcharts, pseudocode, or other available programming planning technique—to devise and design computer programs. Evaluate the effectiveness of your preferred program planning technique, based on its success in the real world. Provide one (1) example of a real-life application of your preferred program planning technique to support your response.
