The physical layout of a network in which all systems connect to a main cable in a linear fashion.
A bus is a common shared communications medium for transmitting data. A bus LAN topology is a shared transmission line to which terminals are connected.
A network in which all nodes share a common pathway called the bus.
The physical layout of a local area network that does not use a central or host computer. Instead, each node manages part of the network, and information is transmitted directly from one computer to another.
A network architecture in which all the nodes are connected to a single cable which is terminated at each end.
The physical layout of a network in which all systems connect to a main cable; also known as linear bus.
A link topology in which all stations are connected in parallel to a medium. These stations are capable of concurrently receiving a signal transmitted by any other station connected to the medium.
An equal-access network design in which all devices are connected in a single line with two distinct ends. See bus.
A computer network that permits the connection of terminals, peripheral devices, and microcomputers along an open-ended central cable.
A way of organizing computers in a network such that they share a common transmission, called a bus.
All clients share a single central medium. For example, cable television customers are all connected to a single coaxial cable.
the topology of a network whose components are connected by a busbar
a network architecture in which a set of clients are connected via a shared communications line, called a bus
a network configuration in which all device s on a network are connect ed via one primary trunk cable
a networking architecture that is linear, usually by using one or more pieces of cable to form a single line, or bus
a network tooplogy in which there is a single line (the bus ) to which all nodes are connected, and the nodes connect only to this bus
a physical layout in which microcomputer workstations and other devices are connected to a UTP/STP or cable segment
a reliable method of setting up a network
A networking setup in which a single cable, such as thin Ethernet, is used to connect one computer to another like a daisy chain to carry data over a network.
(1) A LAN topology in which devices are connected to a single cable. Contrast with ring and star. (2) One or more conductors used as a path over which information is sent from one of many sources to one of many destinations.
A LAN network structure in which all stations (nodes) are connected to the same cable. Data is transmitted up and down this single cable
The original coaxial cable-based LAN topology in which the medium forms a single bus to which all stations are attached. The bus topology is rarely used in LAN installations today because it is relatively difficult to add new users or more existing users from one location to another. It is also difficult to troubleshoot a bus-based LAN unless it is very small.
A type of local area network (LAN) architecture in which each station is directly attached to a common communication channel. Signals transmitted over the channel take the form of messages. As each message passes along the channel, each station receives it. Each station then determines, based on an address contained in the message, whether to accept and process the message or simply to ignore it.
Linear LAN architecture in which transmission from network stations propogate the length of the medium and are received by all other stations. On a bus network, all hosts are connected to a central cable (called a trunk or bus).
The network layout where all the computers are connected together on a single backbone cable.
A local area network topology in which each node or workstation is connected directly to one length of cable or set of parallel wires often referred to as the backbone (examples include ethernets and MAPs).
A network topology in which nodes are connected to a single cable with terminators at each end.
This network topology has computers connected to a strand of network cabling that is connected to network repeaters at one end and terminated at the other. If you break part of the cable or remove the terminator, all machines on that segment lose communication with the network.
The linear LAN used by Ethernet networks.
A type of network in which all tie devices are connected in a line to a single cable. A bus network has two distinct ends. All devices attached to a bus network have equal access to it and can see all the messages that are put onto the network. Each device determines which messages are intended for it alone, and selects those.
all nodes share a single cable. Data is broadcast in either direction on the network and because there is no control a sytem has to be organised that deides who can transmit. A popular system called Ethernet uses a contention method of control. One such control is CSMS/CD. go to top
Linear LAN architecture in which transmissions from network stations propagate the length of the medium and are received by all other stations. Compare with ring topology, star topology, and tree topology.
A network topology in which all nodes are connected to a single coaxial cable and thus share a single channel. The cable is referred to as a backbone. Bus topology is rarely used for local area networks today because it is relatively difficult to add or change users or to troubleshoot. See also ring topology, star topology.
