ring topology in computer networks

What is a Ring Topology? Advantages – Disadvantages In a ring topology, the network that connects to the computers form a logical ring-like communication path. In a ring at a point, there could be two paths to move one is left and the other is right. Similarly, in a computer network, a connected device can do communication from either side …

point to point topology in networking

Point to Point Topology in Networking – Learn Network Topology In point to point topology, two network (e.g computers) nodes connect to each other directly using a LAN cable or any other medium for data transmission. This is the simplest and low-cost option for a computer network.  Because only two parties are involved, the entire bandwidth of the connecting link …

star topology

Explaining Star Topology – Computer Network. The star topology is a network topology for a Local Area Network (LAN) that connects all devices via a central device.  The central device can be a HUB or Switch.  If the central connection fails, all communication fails, the biggest drawback of the star network connection.  On the advantage side over other topologies e.g., …

hybrid topology

What is Hybrid Topology in computer networks? The network topology is a logical and physical arrangement of the connected computers or devices.  There are five basic types of network topologies we have described. As the name suggests, the hybrid topology is the combination of one or more basic network topologies.  While planning for hybrid topology, we need to select a …

network topology and its types

Learn what is network topology and its types in Computer Network. In a computer network, the computing devices connected to each other over a shared or dedicated medium. The network topology is the way devices connect. E.g a device may connect to another device via a direct LAN cable of it may connect via another intermediate device. In this tutorial, …
