VIII Network Topologies
Topologies of a network refer to the layout or communication structure of a network and would apply to a logical or a physical structure.
Each topology grants its respective advantages and its associated disadvantages. For the NETWORK+ test, you are expected to know the features/benefits of each as well as the downside involved. The ability to visually identify topologies should be expected.
Whats the difference between a physical and logical topology? A physical topology describes how the parts of the network are physically connected. A logical topology describes how information travels on the network, independent of exactly how devices on the network are physically connected to it.
