​Network topologies

​The arrangement of the various devices in a network is called its topology. There are four main topologies such as bus, ring, star and mesh.

This ​​A Level Computer Science module introduces ​network topologies to your students, explaining:

  • ​The different arrangements of various devices in a network
  • The advantages and disadvantages of each of the arrangements
  • How data is sent from sender to receiver
  • Physical topolgy vs. logical topology
