The arrangement of nodes usually forming a star, ring, tree, or bus pattern.
The configuration of the interconnections between the nodes in a communications network.
The manner and design in which computers are connected to a network. The topology described both the physical connection, such as Ethernet, and the network type, such as client/server.
the shape of a local area network (LAN) or other communications system; may be physical or logical
the configuration of a communication network
a pattern of connections among nodes
a structure of connections between computers
Describes how a network provides connectivity between the computers on that network. All network topologies operate according to established network protocols that permit different types of computers to communicate and interoperate. SNA, TCP/IP.
The way the physical connections of a computer network are arranged.
This refers to the way a network is constructed - who connects to who. Saying ISP A connects to ISP B and ISP B connects to Optus and ISP C connects to CCA and Ozemail peers with Optus is talking about network topology. Network topology has a great bearing on the speed and reliability of a network. See also Hops
The different configurations that can be adopted in building networks, such as a ring, bus, star or meshed.
(1) Describes the physical and logical relationship of nodes in a network. (2) The schematic arrangement of the links and nodes of a network, typically either a star, ring, tree or bus topology, or some hybrid combination thereof.
A network topology represents the configuration and connections of a network. It is often represented graphically as a network map.
The representation of a linear network by links and, sometimes, nodes. For example, a network topology can represent pipelines, streets, electrical transmission lines, and rivers.
The specific physical, i.e., real, logical, or virtual, arrangement of the elements of a network. Common network topologies include a bus (or linear) topology, a ring topology, and a hybrid topology, which can be a combination of any two or more network topologies. Illustrated to the right are four common Network Topologies..
Configuration, or physical arrangement, of the devices in a communications network. Three commonly used network topologies are bus, ring, and star. 9.16- 18 Networking certifications, 16.18, 16.20-22
The pattern of connection between points in a network.
Network topology is the study of the arrangement or mapping of the elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a network, especially the physical (real) and logical (virtual) interconnections between nodes
