Network Topology and its types

Introduction to Network Topology

The term topology means arrangement of the various elements network including its nodes and connecting lines. The structure of a network topology may be logically and physically. Logically topology represents how data flow with in a network. The network of physical topology is geometric layout of workstation refers to the configuration of cables, computers, and other peripherals.

Types of Topology

Here are several physical topologies

  1. Bus topology
  2. Star topology
  3. Ring topology
  4. Mesh topology
  5. Tree topology

Bus topology

A bus topology consists of main run of cable with a terminator at each end. Each node is connected to a linear cable. In bus signal is travel in both direction from source to recipient. If the recipient address matches the machine address the data is accepted otherwise the machine rejects the data. Bus topology is basically used in local area network.
