Network Topologies: Bus, Ring, and Star Christa Gibbs Axia College  Network Topologies: Bus, Ring, and Star One of the most important issues that need to be considered when designing or developing a  system is how the system is going to be connected so the end user is able to access the  information. The how is simple; with the use of a network. The next question would be; which  network topology is to be used; the bus, the star, or the ring. With the technology growing as fast as it is today, there are other network topologies available  (topology: the infrastructure of a network, a basic map, or a scheme). The topology of a system  is like looking at a road map to a city. You have the main hub in the middle, the city, and each  computer is a suburb; so to speak. There are five basic types, which include the three mentioned above. Then there are also  hybrids that are a mixture of two or more of the five basic types. The basic categories are; 1. Bus network topology – a network designed that a shared communication line connects  all computers (clients). In other words, you have one single trunk line with as many computers
