CAN standard supports several topologies.
Commonly used topologies are:
- Line / Bus Topology.
- Star Topology.
- Ring Topology.
In this regard, what are the 5 network topologies?
Computer Network Topology – Mesh, Star, Bus, Ring and Hybrid
- There are five types of topology in computer networks:
- In mesh topology each device is connected to every other device on the network through a dedicated point-to-point link.
- In star topology each device in the network is connected to a central device called hub.
Subsequently, question is, what do you mean by network topology?
A network topology is the pattern in which nodes (i.e., computers, printers, routers or other devices) are connected to a local area network (LAN) or other network via links (e.g., twisted pair copper wire cable or optical fiber cable). There are four principal topologies used in LANs: bus, ring, star and mesh.
What is network topology and its types?
A network topology is the arrangement of a network , includes nodes and connecting lines. It can be defined in two ways, physical topology and logical topology. There are seven types of topologies in Network. They are point to point, bus, star, ring, mesh, tree and hybrid.
Which topology is best?
In a Star Network the best advantage is when there is a failure in cable then only one computer might get affected and not the entire network. Star topology is used to ease the probabilities of network failure by connecting all of the systems to a central node.
