Bus Topology | 4 Advantages and 3 Disadvantages

What is Bus Topology?

Bus topology is a network where all the nodes are connected with each other with a single common cable. When one node wants to access another node on the network then it puts a message addressed to that device on the bus network.

Bus Topology

Advantages :

  • It is very easy to connect a node or peripheral in this network.
  • Bus network requires less cable length than any other topologies.
  • Bus topology is very suitable for small networks.
  • Lower cost due to less use of cables.

Disadvantages :

  • As the total network is depended on a single cable so if any problem occurs in the main cable, the entire network shuts down.
  • At the start & the end point of the main cable terminators are required to build up the network.
  • This network cannot be used as a stand-alone solution in a large building.
