Bus Topology - This type has all the nodes connected to a common transmission medium with two endpoints. The advantage of a bus topology is the ease of managing it. This is real useful for a small business. 1 Ring Topology - In this type every node in the network is connected to two other nodes and the first and last node are connected to each other. Information is passed through every node until it reaches its destination. This type of topology does not require a central server, but the drawback is if one station fails the whole network is inoperable. 2 Mesh Topology - This type of network every network node is connected to every other node in the network. This allows for multiple transmissions of signals from one node to

Unformatted text preview: others. 3 Star Topology-Every node in this network is connected to a central node or "hub". This topology gets its name from the star-like shape that is created with it. 4 These are just a few of the topologies out there, but there are hybrid ones that are created for specific reasons. Some networks are created from a combination of the above listed ones. Depending on what a person needs or their array of knowledge with networks will depend on what topology they use. 1 Managing and maintaining your PC 2 Managing and maintaining your PC 3 4
