Network Topologies

Question 1 of 6

Medal-premium 1

Which of these is NOT an advantage of a BUS network topology.

Select one or more of the following:

  • Easy to implement and add more computer systems to the network

  • Quick to set up - well suited for temporary networks

  • Cost-effective - less cabling

  • Data is quickly transfterred without a bottlenect - consistent data trainsfer speeds

  • The transmission of data is relatively simple as packets travel in one direction only

  • Adding additional nodes has very little impact on bandwidth

Question 2 of 6

Medal-premium 1

Which one of these is NOT a DISADVANTAGE of the BUS topology?

Select one or more of the following:

  • It is difficult to troubleshoot

  • Limited cable length and number of stations - performance degrades as additional computers are added

  • If there is a problem with the main cable or connection, the entire network goes down

  • Low security - all computers can see all data transmissions

  • Proper termination is required

  • Data collisions are more likely, which causes the network to slow down.

  • If any of the computer systems fail, data cannot be transmitted efficiently

  • To add another node you must temporarily shut down the network

  • Expensive to install

  • Extra hardware required other than cabling

Question 3 of 6

Medal-premium 4

Which of these is NOT an ADVANTAGE of the RING network?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Easy to implement and add more computer systems to the network

  • Well suited for temporary networks

  • Cost-effective – less cabling

  • Data is quickly transferred without a bottleneck – consistent data transfer speeds

  • The transmission of data is relatively simple as packets travel in one direction only

  • Adding additional nodes has very little impact on bandwidth

  • It prevents network collisions.

  • Possible to add more computer systems without taking the network down

  • A failure at one node or cabling will have very little effect on the network

  • Better security

Question 4 of 6

Medal-premium 4

What are the DISADVANTAGES of a RING Network?
Select the 4 most appropriate answers

Select one or more of the following:

  • Difficult to troubleshoot

  • Performance degrades as additional computers are added

  • If there is a problem with the main cable or connection the entire network goes down

  • Low security - all computers can see all transmissions

  • Data collisions are more likely, which causes the network to slow down

  • If any of the computer systems fail data cannot be transmitted

  • To add another node you must temporarily shut down the network

  • Expensive to install

Question 5 of 6

Medal-premium 6

What are the ADVANTAGES of a STAR Network
Select the 6 most appropriate answers

Select one or more of the following:

  • Easy to implement and add more computer systems to the network

  • Well suited for temporary networks

  • Cost effective - less cabling

  • Good performance / fast network speed

  • Easy to set up

  • Possible to add more computer systems without taking the network down

  • Any failure to a computer system or its cabling will have little effect on the network

  • Adding computer systems has very little impact on bandwidth

  • Minimal collisions

  • Better security

Question 6 of 6

Medal-premium 1

What are the DISADVANTAGES of the STAR Network
Select the 2 most appropriate answers

Select one or more of the following:

  • It is difficult to troubleshoot

  • Performance degrades as additional computers are added

  • If there is a problem with the main cable, the entire network goes down

  • Data collisions are more likely

  • Expensive to install, more cabling required

  • Extra hardware required, such as a hub

  • To add another node you must temporarily shut down the network
