## Topologies

The arrangement in which the nodes of a LAN are connected to each other.

For example Mesh topology (shown below) is the topology of a network whose components are all connected directly to every other component

## Star topology the topology of a network whose components are connected to a hub. | ## Bus topology the topology of a network whose components are connected by a busbar | ## Ring topology A ring network is a network topology in which each node connects to exactly two other nodes, forming a single continuous pathway for signals through each node - a ring |
