The focus of this topic is an establishment of the definition of a network itself and the common terminology used to describe the elements of a network. The rest of the topic is focused on the different network topologies and their classifications (by geography, by connectivity, and by relative status). The technologies themselves are discussed throughout the rest of this course of study.

    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.
