Advantages and Disadvantages
It is easy to set up and extend it
Cable length required for this topology is the least compared to other networks.
Bus topology costs very less.
Linear Bus network is mostly used in small networks. Good for LAN.
- If the main cable brakes the whole thing brakes
- It is slow because of date collisions
- It has a high security risk
A bus network is an order in a local area network (LAN) in which each computer is connected to a main cable or link called the bus. The illustration shows a bus network with five devices. Each devise is shown as a circle, the bus appears as a strait line, connections to the bus appear as vertical lines.
