SMC Academy
At SMC, we know how critical your work with the
customer is, whether you are helping to educate a small
business in the most effective solution for their growing
networking needs, or whether you are working in
partnership with a midsize or large corporation to
provide a reliable, high-performance alternative more
cost-effectively than their current solution. We value
your role in helping to create demand for our product
solutions, and this course is designed to help you more
easily understand our products and identify opportunities
to make valuable connections with the customers. If you
are new to SMC products, this course will provide the
basics: our core product lines, the key benefits of our
innovative networking technologies, and the best way to
sell our products.
We expect that you already know a great deal about
networking technologies, but to help you along we’ve
provided key terms to help guide your understanding of
SMC product features and benefits.
At the end of each product section, we present you with
a short quiz to help reinforce your learning. When you
finish the training, please use the evaluation form at the
end to let us know how you liked it.

ADAPTIVE CUT-THROUGH
A forwarding switch cut through technology that adapts
its data forwarding process (Cut-Through, FragmentFree, Store & Forward) according to the data error rate
within the network.
ASYNCHRONOUS TRANSFER MODE (ATM)
A specific packet oriented transfer mode using asynchronous time division multiplexing technique: the
multiplesec information flow is organized in fixed blocks
called cells (Also called cell-relay).
ATTACHMENT UNIT INTERFACE (AUI)
Connector found on many network cards and 10BASE-T
hubs, used to attach yellow cable via a transceiver.
ATM (ASYNCHRONOUS TRANSFER MODE)

Procedure for defining connection-speed for
10/100Mbps Ethernet devices and Ethernet transceivers.
BACKBONE
Critical part of the network - Usually runs at higher
speeds than the rest of the network.
BANDWIDTH
Transmission capacity of a computer channel, communications line or bus. It is expressed in cycles per second
(Hertz), the bandwidth being the difference between the
lowest and highest frequencies transmitted. It is also
often stated in bits or bytes per second.
BACK-PRESSURE
A technology that prevents data collisions when the
network line is busy.

CSMA/CD
(Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection)
Baseband communications access method that uses
a collision-detection technique. When a device wants
to gain access to the network, it checks to see if the
network is free. If it is not, it waits for a random amount
of time before retrying. If the network is free and two
devices attempt access at exactly the same time, they
both back off to avoid a collision and each wait a random amount of time before retrying.
