    Bead Bar Topologies

    450 words, 2 pages

    Network Topologies The bus topology is probably one of the most simple network topologies. It is a network architecture in which clients are all connected through a shared communication line. All of the devices are on a network and connected to a common central cable known as a bus or backbone. Some of the major advantages to using a bus topology is that it is relatively inexpensive and it has the capability to add new devices to the network by simply connecting them to the bus, making this an easy network to work with. However, if the main cable fails, the entire network will shut down. Then
