3 In a bus network all the workstations, servers and printers are joined to one cable,the bus. At each end
of the cable a terminator is fitted to stop signals reflecting back down the bus.
3.1 Bus Network
3.1.1 Cheap to install
3.1.2 involves less cabling.
3.1.3 In the main cable fails all fails
4.1 Disaster recover contains 3
4.2 Even if a disaster occurs a data backup should be in
place. eg Cloud storage.
4.3 Firewalls needs to be in place,this boosts up
the security of a network.
4.4 The door of a server should be locked so that intruders cant come in
