The bus network
How the bus network functions
. Easy to add extra workstations.
. Uses less cable than a star network.
. Best choice for temporary networks.
. p If there are a lot of workstations on the network, data can travel slowly.
. Data collisions can happen as the network becomes busy.
. low security - every workstation can see all of the data in the network.
. Limited cable length and a maximum number of workstations.
