##### Network Topologies

Topology:

• Topology refers to the way in which the network of computers is connected.
• The choice of topology is dependent upon type and number of software and hardware used, rate of data transfer required, response time, and cost of the network.
• Topology can also be defined as the geometrically interconnection pattern by which the stations are connected using suitable transmission media.

Network Topology:

Types of network topologies that are used-

1. Mesh Topology
2. Bus Topology
3. Star Topology
4. Ring Topology
5. Tree Topology
