Basic Web Notions
1- The traditional LAN architecture:
The following architectures are, or has been, used efficiently by the information networks and public enterprises.
- The Ring Network: The ring topology, the hosts are connected one behind the other, forming a circle.
- The Tree Network: The hierarchical topology is created the same way as the extended star topology. But, instead of linking together hubs and switches, the system is connected to a computer that controls the topology traffics.
- The Mesh Network: This topology is used when you shouldn’t have any communication stop. Every host had its own connections to other hosts. This also represents one of the characteristics of Internet, that has multiple paths that leads to on emplacement.
- The Bus Network: This topology consists of allowing all the hosts to be directly connected to one backbone segment.
- The Star Network: All the cables are connected to a central point. This point is usually a hub or a switch.
