Network topology

  2. 2. NETWORK TOPOLOGY Network topology is the arrangement of the various elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a computer network. Essentially, it is the topological structure of a network and may be depicted physically or logically.
  3. 3. BUS TOPOLOGY -This network widely used in 1980 -Commonly referred to as a linear bus -it use one cable -All the nodes and devises are connected to that cable -No main computer
  4. 4. Advantages  easy to establish connection  It is best suited for small network  Easy to connect a computer or devices  Requires less cable  Cheaper other topology
  5. 5. Disadvantages  Not suitable in large network  Limited number of devices can be added  Difficult to identify problems  If network cable break, the entire net work will be down
  6. 6.  Star topology  Most common topology  nodes are individually connected to a central connection point  Multiple computer are connected to a host computer  The hub manage and control all function  It centrally controlled  Communicate only via the host computer
  7. 7. Advantages  Easy to add devices  One cable failure not effect to others  Centralized management  Easy to find problems
  8. 8. Disadvantages  Require more cable than bus topology  Failure of central hub can effect all network  Costly(installation)
  9. 9. Ring topology  Devices are connected in a continuous loop  No host computer  Data flow in a circular fashion  No centralized control  each node connects to exactly two other nodes  Data travels from node to node
  10. 10. Advantages  Greater speed  Less cable  Easy to find fault  Central service not require
  11. 11.  Disadvantages  More cable than bus  Break in the ring will dispute the entire network  It not common as bus  Moving, adding and changing the devices can affect the network  Only one machine can transmit on the network at a time
  12. 12. Tree topology  combines characteristics of linear bus and star topologies  It arranged as a tree  It consists of groups of star-configured workstations connected to a linear bus backbone cable
  13. 13.  Advantages  Easy to expansion of network  Error detection and correction is easy.  If one segment is damaged, other segments are not affected.  we divide the whole network into segments (star networks),  which can be easily managed and maintained.
  14. 14.  Disadvantages  Difficult to configure  More cable require  Scalability of the network depends on the type of cable used.  A lot of maintenance is needed  backbone failure effect to entire network
  15. 15.  Mesh topology  Each computer connected to every other computers by a separate cable  Implementing mesh topology is expensive  Fully connected wired networks have the advantages of security and reliability  each component is connected to every other component
  16. 16.  Advantages  Provide redundant paths between devices  It eliminate traffic problems  Easy expansion  One computer fails , entire network still operate  All side communication
  17. 17.  Disadvantages  Expensive  More cable require  Difficult to manage  Problem identification difficult
  18. 18.  Hybrid topology  uses two or more other network topologies, including bus , mesh , ring , star, and tree topology.
