WK3 Topology Discussion

Hey Class,

First of all let’s review, “What is Network Topology”? Network Topology to me describes the physical and even the logical layout of one’s network. It is all about the nodes and how we move our data around, right?

Two keep things super simple and to be effective, I have opted to discuss:
Physical Topology
Logical Topology

How did you guess?

Starting with ‘Physical Topology’ this to me can be described as the actual layout of devices within a network. Objects that you and I can physically touch.

The second one is ‘Logical Topology’ which can be described as the method for which data travels through the network.

Think of things this way, the roads are the ‘physical network’ whereas the vehicles are the logical networks that carry the data, but through the roadways.

I am a huge Tron fan, so understand the dataverse world but getting through via the physical world is actually more simple than it sounds.

That’s all I’ve got.

God Bless,
