What is an advantage to using a protocol that is defined by an open standard?

  • A company can monopolize the market.
  • The protocol can only be run on equipment from a specific vendor.
  • An open standard protocol is not controlled or regulated by standards organizations.
  • It encourages competition and promotes choices.
    Explanation:

    A monopoly by one company is not a good idea from a user point of view. If a protocol can only be run on one brand, it makes it difficult to have mixed equipment in a network. A proprietary protocol is not free to use. An open standard protocol will in general be implemented by a wide range of vendors.
