STAR TOPOLOGY!

By Jaime Powell

what it is.

this is a star topology it has a hub in the centre of all of the monitors. all data passes through the central hub before reaching the destination of another monitor. Easy to connect new devices. In star topology new devices can be added easily without affecting rest of the network. Failure of one node or link doesn’t affect the rest of network.Too much dependency on central device has its own drawbacks. If it fails whole network goes down. The use of hub, a router or a switch as central device increases the overall cost of the network. Performance and as well number of nodes which can be added in such topology is depended on capacity of central device.
