Characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of Bus topology

Definition of Computer network topology

Network topology is a way or concept structure to connect multiple or many computers that make up a computer network.

And every kind of computer network topology will be different in terms of speed of data transmission, cost, as well as ease in the installation process.

Well, this time already on know what is a topology, now I will give a review on the characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of the bus topology. Read more here.

Characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of Bus topology
Computer network topology is the first is a bus topology is quite simple compared to other topology because this topology is usually used in network institution based FO (Fiber optic), then combined with the star topology to connect client or node.

The bus topology uses a coaxial cable type along with the client node and in general, the coaxial cable end is usually given the T connector as the end to end.

For those of you who want to know what are the characteristics of advantages and disadvantages in the bus topology, more can see the following reviews

Bus topology Characteristics

  • It is a cable that both ends are closed where along the cable there are nodes.
  • Most prevalent because it is simple in installation.
  • The biggest problem if one cable broke or loose then the whole network will die.
  • The signal passes two directions with one cable that may occur collision or data collision.
  • The Bus topology is the transmission line where the signal is received and sent on each device connected to one straight line (cable), the signal will only be captured by the intended device, while other tools that are not the purpose will ignore the signal and will only pass the signal.
  • Using a Coaxial cable
  • Using the BNC connector

Advantages of Bus topology

  • The use is quite easy and efficient
  • The addition of new client/workstation can be easily
  • Using only a few cables
  • Cheap cost
  • Simple

Disadvantages of Bus topology

  • If one of the cables is disconnected or problematic, it may interfere with another client/workstation computer
  • The process of sending and receiving less efficient data, usually there are frequent collision or collision data
  • Very old and hard to develop topology
