Network Topologies 1. What is Topologies? Topology is the shape of the network. 2. What are the types of Topologies? • Bus Topology • Star Topology • Ring Topology • Mesh Topology • Hybrid Topology 3. What is the first topology? Bus topology 4. What is the most common topology now? Star topology

Bus Topology • All the computer (servers, client computers) and other networking devices (Printers) are connected in a linear Backbone Cable. Printer Client 1 Client 3

Backbone cable (Coaxial cable)

The terminators at the both ends prevent the data from data loss and prevent the data signals to bounce back.49 • • • Both end of the back bone cable is terminated by the terminators.Mohamed Simad B . It is suitable only for small network. Star Topology Printer Client 1 Client 2 Switch Client 5 File server Database server Client 3 4 Client 4 . All the computers are connected with a backbone cable by using ‘T’ connectors. the entire network will fail. Advantages of Bus topology • • It is very cost effective (cheap to implement No need of switch and hubs Disadvantages of Bus topology • • • Scalability is very less If there is any problem in the backbone cable or connectors.

Ring Topology Client 1 Client 4 Client 2 Client 3 5 . If the centralized hub or switch fails due to power failure or hardware failure the entire network will fail. Advantages of star Topology • • • • Scalability is very high. Simplicity Disadvantages of star Topology • • The primary disadvantage of star Topology is the high dependence of the centralized hub or switch. Better performance. Isolation of devices.49 • • All the components and other networking devices are connected with the centralized hub or switch.Mohamed Simad B . Star topology is one of the most common computer network topology today.

Data flow in unidirectional in ring topology. Performs better than a star topology under heavy network load. it regenerates the signals (tokens) on its own. Each nod connected to exactly two other nodes forming a single continues pathway for signals to travel through each node. It works based on token – Ring standards. Data travels from node to node. Token contains the data. Advantages • • • • No data collision – Because data flow is unidirectional Every computer acts as a repeater.

Slower than an Ethernet network. Node 1 Node 2 Node 3 Node 4 7 .

Network cards are expensive than Ethernet network cards.

Hybrid Topology • • It is the combination of two network topologies. etc. Mesh topology is suitable for wireless networks. BUS Terminator T-Connector Server SWITCH SWITCH Terminator STAR 1 STAR 2 8 .

In comparison with router switches are less sophisticated and less intelligent. Most of the switches do not require any prior configuration and are usually ready to use. A router works on the principal of IP address Routers have their own in built operating system and they need to be configured before used. FAT volume are recognized by all versions of windows O/S starting from win-98 up to win -7 NTFS New Technology File System NTFS cannot be converted to FAT32 volume NTFS support file compression & encryption NTFS provide high level security it supports share level.
