Types of Computer Networks Computer Network Topology

Types of Computer Networks

There are two types of client-server networks and peer to peer type network.

1. Client-Server Networks

Servers are computers that provide facilities for other computers on the network and clients are computers that receive or use the facilities provided by the server. Server in client-server type of network called a Dedicated Server as pure acts as facility provider for workstations and servers can not serve as workstation.Types of Computer Networks

2. Peer To Peer Networks

type of peer to peer network is termed a non-dedicated server, because the server does not act as a pure server but at the same time can serve as workstation.Computer Network Topology

Various Kinds Network Topology1. Bus Topology

Bus topology is often also referred to as the backbone topology, where there is a coaxial cable that dibentang then several computers connected to the cable.Computer Network Topology

2. Ring Topology

Ring topology is often called a ring topology because of its shape like a circular cincing. All computers in the network will be connected in a ring. The ring is almost the same function as the star topology concenrator the gathering center of the cable end of every connected computer.Computer Network Topology

3. Star Topology

Called a star topology because of its shape like a star, a device called a concentrator can be either a hub or switch into the center, where all the computers in a network connected to this concentrator.Computer Network Topology

4. Tree Topology

Tree Topology is the development or generalization of a bus topology. Transmission medium is a cable that branches but not a closed loop.Computer Network Topology

5. Mesh Topology

Mesh topology is the topology that has no rules in the connection. This topology is typically arise due to the lack of initial planning when building a network.Computer Network Topology

6. Wireless Topology

Wireless networks are a trend as an alternative to wired networks, especially for the development of traditional LAN because it can reduce the cost of wiring and reduce wiring relocation tasks when there is a change in the architecture of buildings and so on. This topology is known by various names, such as WLAN, WaveLAN, HotSpot, Thank You
