Topology of networks

Bus

Bus

Typical for LAN networks
Physical topology interconnects all nodes by one shared conductor

Realized by physical bus or star
Data are in one distributed to all end use devices, communication peer to peer
 
Star

Star
Dominant physical toplogy of current LAN
There is enabled mutual and parallel communication
Most often like physical topology star, eventually hybrid, backbone topology All communication is realized by the server (client server)
 
Ring
Ring
For some industry networks (sure response time)
For some MAN, WAN networks
By physical topology ring or hybrid integration star/ring (special hub)
There is not resistant to end use device outage
 
Backbone  
Backbone
Wide LAN, backbone network is usually high-speed  
 
Disarranged  
Neuspořádaná
WAN and MAN networks
