The Bus Network

Molly Fazakerley

The Bus Network is set of computers attached together with a wire. It is called the bus network because when data is sent it travels along the wire passing the data onto the devices along the way. It works just like the bus system!

Advantages:

It is easy to install and it is also very cheap.

Disadvantages:

If one of the devices disconnects then the whole system will crash. Also the data is sent to every workstation along the wire so everyone will see the data. This will cause security issues.

Here is a diagram to help you understand.
