Characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of Ring topology - Topology? Anyone know what is a topology, who know the world of computer network must already know what is topology. Well, who does not know ya what is a computer network topology read the following.
Characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of Ring 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 of Ring topology characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of Star topology. Read more here.

Characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of Ring topology


Ring topology

Ring topology or ring is one of network topology that connects one PC with another PC is a circular circuit, similar to a ring.

Usually, this topology only uses LAN Card to connect PC one with other PC.

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

Ring topology Characteristics

  • Using a backbone cable for data transmission.
  • Cables are used twisted pair type.
  • The ends of the backbone cable will be connected to the first node so that it will form a closed ring or circle.
  • If the cable is disconnected or the node is corrupted then the network will crash.
  • Data transmission using the token passing scheme method is performed alternately in one direction.
  • Complicated and relatively expensive if implemented for small networks.
  • There is no message sending to the broadcast address so there are no collisions or data collisions, so network performance is relatively stable.

Advantages of Ring topology

  • Better performance than bus topology
  • Easy to implement
  • Fairly easy configuration
  • Reasonably cheap institution cost

Ring topology Losses

  • Communication performance in this topology is assessed by the number or number of dots or nodes
  • Pretty complicated Troubleshooting
  • If one of the connections is disconnected then the other connection will also disconnect
  • Data collisions often occur
