A network cabling configuration that uses a central connection point (hub) through which all communications pass.
A network configuration in which all devices are connected to a central hub or switch. Almost all home networks use star topology. Also see topology.
network LAN infrastructure in which each node is connected to a central hub.
A topology where devices are connected to a central point.
The physical layout of a local network in which a host computer manages the network.
This is a network topology that has network hubs at the center, with all connected computers linked back to the hub by a single cable. Thus, if one cable goes down, the rest of the computers can still communicate.
A network where all devices are connected to a central or master communication device that routes messages.
This is also known as a bush. Effectively there is no successive splitting of lineages, rather, all lineages split at the same time, resulting in a topology with a single origin where all external branches radiate from the centre.
A network architecture in which nodes are connected to a central device such as a hub or concentrator.
LAN topology in which end points on a network are connected to a common central switch by point-to-point links. A ring topology that is organized as a star implements a unidirectional closed-loop star, instead of point-to-point links. Compare with bus topology, ring topology, and tree topology.
A computer network that involves a centralized host computer connected to a number of smaller computer systems.
A networking configuration used with 10Base-T or 100Base-TX cable. Each node on the network is connected to the hub like points of a star. See bus topology.
the topology of a network whose components are connected to a hub
a group of workstations connected to a controlling switch
a LAN architecture in which the endpoints on a network are connected to a common central hub, or switch, by dedicated links
an architecture that includes a central device or hub to connect all stations together
a system in which all workstations or devices are connected to a central location
All devices are attached to a central hub in a star configuration
A local-area network (LAN) in which all nodes (stations) are connected to a central device
A network configuration in which all stations are individually connected to and all messages pass through a central node. See also bus topology, logical topology, network topology, physical topology, ring topology, and physical star topology .
Star Topology is a network topology where each node is connected via a point-to-point link to a central connection point (hub). Failure in one node doesn't affect the network since each node has a dedicated and independent connection to the hub. But if the hub goes down, the network will stop working. Ethernet networks over twisted pair (10BaseT, 100BaseT, and 1000BaseT) implement star topology. See picture. Also see bus, ring, and mesh topologies.
A topology where all the devices must connect to a central hub. Star topologies are relatively easy to install and manage, but can have bottlenecks occur as all the information must pass through the hub.
LAN topology in which each peripheral node is connected to a hub by an individual length of twisted pair cable, in a layout resembling a star. Each node is connected to a hub, which acts as a focal point for network cabling. All information passes through the central point and is passed to the nodes. See also bus topology, ring topology.
LAN topology in which each node on a network is connected directly to a central network hub or concentrator.
This topology uses a hub to connect all the computers on the network. The access method on this popular topology is CSMA/CD.
A network topology in which nodes are connected to a common device such as a hub or concentrator.
A network topology in which each station on the network is connected directly to a hub.
A network configuration in which all nodes connect to a single central hub.
Network designed in the shape of a star, where all end points are connected to one central switching device, or hub. Star networks are easier to manage than ring topology but are slower because every message must pass through the central point.
A network layout or design in which each node is connected to a central hub. The hub establishes, maintains, and terminates all connections between the nodes.
A network configuration in which there is a central point to which a group of systems are directly connected. All transmissions from one system to another pass through this central point. Ethernet 10Base-T is one example of a media system that uses a star topology. All stations are connected through a central device called a "hub".
