After reading this paper the reader should know how each of the terms works in a computer. The reader will also have knowledge of each terms advantages and disadvantages.
that I will discuss are Mesh, Bus, Ring, and Star. Moreover, the discussion will also include information on the differences of Ethernet, Token Ring, FIDDI, and wireless networks. Within the discussion of the topologies will be the advantages and disadvantages of each type discussed. Furthermore, I will...
five main types of physical topologies that can be used and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. These five types include: • • • • • Bus Ring Star Hybrid or tree Mesh
The bus topology exists when each of the systems is connected in a line, as seen in Figure 1. In this topology, all the...
could be connected to the Internet.
• WANs can be connected together using the Internet, leased lines or satellite links.
Advantages and disadvantages of networks
• Sharing devices such as printers saves money.
• Site (software) licenses are likely to be cheaper than buying several standalone...
in its performance and operation. These topologies, when understood fully, help to understand the networks architecture. So exploring the advantages and disadvantages of the various architectures also. Acquiring a good grip in network topologies uses and their limitations can have a significant effect...
if the backbone cable fails, the entire network effectively becomes unusable.
▸ It is easy to set up, handle, and implement.
▸ It is best-suited for small networks.
▸ It costs very less.
▸ The cable length is limited. This limits the number of network nodes that can...

o Identify topologies in use.
o Explain advantages and disadvantages of different topologies.
o Consider combining topologies.
o Present recommendations and benefits.

The Topology of the Network
There are several types of topology to choose from that could be used. They all have advantages and disadvantages. A trade off must be made in order to choose the one that is best suited to the task in hand.
A bus topology has a server...

locations of the computers and how the cable is run between them.
Four most common topologies are:
All the devices on a bus topology are connected by one single cable. Whenone

Advantages and Disadvantages of LAN
Advantages Of LAN
Advantages of connecting computers in a LAN:
Workstations can share peripheral devices like printers. This is cheaper than buying a printer for every workstation.
Workstations do not necessarily need their own hard disk or CD-ROM drives which...

Hubs: These are used in Ethernet networks. Segments which use hubs are often described as having star topology, in which the hub forms the wiring centre of the star. In a hub, a signal that is received at any port is transmitted again on all the other ports. A hub is essentially a...

Each individual office will be made up LANs. The LANs will be made up of star topologies. The star network topology connects computers, printers, servers and other elements at one central location called a cross-connect or hub. A star network places a hub in the center of the network nodes. Groups of data...
