Dear albert,

I am located in the USA and reside primarily in New York.

This help desk is pimarily for helping those with structured cabling issues. We have a policy of not doing research and or homework for students. Please understand that the information supplied here is provided by volunteers like myself who have spent many years in the telecommunications field but due to time restraints we can not provide all answers but will give you links on this and to other sites that may answer your questions.

25 pair cable (and larger are used in many areas. One use is to provide a feed for services to a particular communication room, cabinet or area. From there the cable is either cross-connected or patched to smaller cable to feed the services to the required systems or equipment.

For your other questions on bridges, routers, gateways, ethernet, virtual networks you will need to do an internet search on these topics. To go into a lengthy discussussion help is beyond the intent of this forum.
