Network topology basically depicts the configuration of a communication network. Here the term “Configuration” means the the physical and the logical interconnection between the different nodes of a network.

Basic categories of network topology
Network topology could be categorized into 3 types,namely – Physical,Logical and Signal topologies.  Physical  topology describes the physical design of a network. Signal topology traces the paths of the signals over the network. The mapping of the paths taken by data as they move over the network is defined as a logical topology. Signal topology and logical topology are almost similar. Continue reading “Types Of Network Topologies” »
