 Bus Topology

Alternatively referred to as a line topology, a bus topology is a network setup in which each computer and network device are connected to a single cable or backbone.

  • Simplest one to connect together

  • Single cable joins all work stations, printer and file server

  • Easy to install

  • Easy to add extra work station

  • Uses less cables

  • If problem with central cable the whole network stops

  • Can be slow if lots of connections

  • Data collision can happen

Ring Topology
