What are the Types of Network Topologies?

Defines Network Device Organization

Four common types

  • BUS Topology
  • TREE Topology
  • STAR Topology
  • RING Topology

Topologies are logical Architecture

Actual devices need not be physically organized in these configurations

BUS and TREE Topology

TREE Topology branch with multiple nodes.

STAR Topology

  • used in Ethernet and Token Ring

5 to 100+ devices
