Mesh topology This is a network where each device has its own connections to all other devices. It provides each device with a point-to-point connection to every other device in the network. This topology is commonly used in WAN's, which connect networks over telecommunication links. Mesh topologies use routers to determine the best path. Advantages Mesh networks provide redundancy, in the event of a link failure; meshed networks enable data to be routed through any other site connected to the network. A mesh topology is implemented to provide as much protection as possible from interruption of service. If there are other possible routes through the network, the damage of one or several cables or computers may not have vital impact except the involved computers. Use of dedicated links eliminates traffic problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
