The three basic network topologies are Bus, Star, and ring. The first one Bus is what is known as the backbone or trunk, all data is transmitted between nodes in the network. This is the most common network type widely used by most businesses. All the nodes of the network are connected to a common transmission medium, which means that you have a general connection point and then it branches off from there and connects to several more connections. If the main communication medium fails, the entire network becomes virtual unusable. Now with bus all of your connections go down the line just like a bus, you have the server or internet connection, PC and printer. If there are more computers they would be before the printer. Pros of Bus topology: Wiring for this is simple, and it uses the least amount of wires. Since the nodes are connected by what is called high impedance tapping’s, what this means is it is easy to extend the network. It can also handle one-to-many data transmissions.
