Complete Network Topology

Network Topology refers to layout of a network. How different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate is determined by the network's topology.

Network Topology refers to layout of a network and how different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate. Topologies are either physical (the physical layout of devices on a network) or logical (the way that the signals act on the network media, or the way that the data passes through the network from one device to the next).

Network topology recognizes eight basic topologies:

  • Point-to-point Topology,
  • Bus Topology,
  • Star Topology,
  • Ring or circular Topology,
  • Mesh Topology,
  • Tree Topology,
  • Hybrid Topology,
  • Daisy chain Topology.

Complete Network Topology

Example 1. Complete Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This sample shows the complete network topology or fully connected network topology.

A complete (fully connected) topology is a network topology in which there is a direct link between all pairs of nodes. In a fully connected network with n nodes, there are n(n-1)/2 direct links. Networks designed with this topology are usually very expensive to set up, but provide a high degree of reliability due to the multiple paths for data that are provided by the large number of redundant links between nodes.

Use the predesigned objects, templates and samples of the Computer and Networks Solution for ConceptDraw PRO to create your own professional Computer Network Diagrams quick and easy.

Example 2. Computer and Networks Solution

The Computer Network Diagrams produced with ConceptDraw PRO are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio XML).
