Flashcards in 1.4 Network Topologies Deck (5)
How are nodes (computing devices on the network) connected in a star network?
Each node is directly connected to the switch
Node -- Switch -- Node
How are nodes (computing devices on the network) connected in a mesh network?
All nodes are connected to each other
Node -- Node -- Node
In which topology does the entire network fail if the switch does?
The star networks core disadvantage is that if the switch fails the entire network does
In which topology are faults very easy to locate?
In a star network faults are very easy to locate because the faults will only affect one node
