What is the layout of how a network communicates with different devices?
What are the two different network topology?
wired and wireless
The most common wired topology used is
In a star topology,
all devices are directly connected to the central hub or switch
The main benefit of the star topology is that,
if one device fails or if there is a break in the cable, then the other devices would not be affected
The main disadvantage of a star topology is that
if the central hub or switch fails, then all of the devices connected would be affected
Single Point of Failure (SPOF)
a single weakness that is capable of bringing an entire network down
topology where the computers are connected on a loop or ring
(T/F) The ring topology is commonly used today
The main benefit of the ring topology is that
it's easy to install and troubleshoot
The disadvantage of the ring topology is that
if one of the computers goes down or if there is a break in the cable, then all of the data flow would be disrupted
(T/F) The bus topology is commonly used today
What is the topology in which there is one main trunk, or backbone, that all the various computers and network devices are connected to?
The cable used for a bus topology is the
Devices connect to a coaxial cable using the
BNC connector (T connector)
The main benefit of the bus topology is that
it's cheap and easy to implement
The disadvantage of the bus topology is that
it requires that the coaxial cable be terminated at both ends using terminators
What is the topology in which every computer connects to every other computer and no central connecting device is needed?
The main advantage of the mesh topology is that
it creates a high redundancy level
The disadvantage of the mesh topology is that
Mesh topology is mainly used on
The Internet is a good example of a
The internet is made up of
numerous routers all over the world that are connected to each other to route data to their intended designation
(T/F) The internet is very redundant
What is a wireless topology that defines a wireless network composed of an access point connected to a wired LAN and wireless devices communicate with the wired LAN through the access point (AP)?
What is a simple wireless topology in which each device connects to each other without any infrastructure (such as routers, cables, servers)?
ad hoc topology
Wireless mesh topology
wireless devices broadcast directly to each other
The wireless mesh topology is beneficial because
if one or more access points were to fail, it wouldn't matter because the other access points would reroute the data
