Bus topology and star topology?
There are number of LAN technologies and each technology is classified into a category according to its topology , two such topologies are star and bus topologies . In star topology ,The hub accepts data from a sender and delivers it to receiver, there is no security in star topology . In Bus topology all system are connected to a single , long cable.

When only a few microcomputers are to be linked then the bus network is typically used?
What are the advantages of mesh topology over other types of network topology?
Advantages of a Tree Topology Point-to-point wiring for individual segments. Supported by several hardware and software venders. Disadvantages of a Tree Topology Overall length of each segment is limited by the type of cabling used. If the backbone line breaks, the entire segment goes down. More difficult to configure and wire than other topologies. Advantages of a Linear Bus Topology Easy to connect a computer or peripheral to a linear bus. Requires less cable length than a star topology. Disadvantages of a Linear Bus Topology Entire network shuts down if there is a break in the main cable. Terminators are required at both ends of the backbone cable. Difficult to identify the problem if the entire network shuts down. Not meant to be used as a stand-alone solution in a large building. It is slower than the other topologies Advantages of a Ring Topology Data packets travel at great speed No collisions Easier to fault find No terminators required Disadvantages of a Ring Topology Requires more cable than a bus A break in the ring will bring it down Not as common as the bus - less devices available Advantages of a Star Topology Easy to install and wire. No disruptions to the network when connecting or removing devices. Easy to detect faults and to remove parts. Disadvantages of a Star Topology Requires more cable length than a linear topology. If the hub or concentrator fails, nodes attached are disabled. More expensive than linear bus topologies because of the cost of the concentrators.
