# Complete Network Topology

Network Topology refers to layout of a network. How different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate is determined by the network's topology.

Network Topology refers to layout of a network and how different nodes in a network are connected to each other and how they communicate. Topologies are either physical (the physical layout of devices on a network) or logical (the way that the signals act on the network media, or the way that the data passes through the network from one device to the next).

Network topology recognizes eight basic topologies:

• Point-to-point Topology,
• Bus Topology,
• Star Topology,
• Ring or circular Topology,
• Mesh Topology,
• Tree Topology,
• Hybrid Topology,
• Daisy chain Topology.

Example 1. Complete Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

This sample shows the complete network topology or fully connected network topology.

A complete (fully connected) topology is a network topology in which there is a direct link between all pairs of nodes. In a fully connected network with n nodes, there are n(n-1)/2 direct links. Networks designed with this topology are usually very expensive to set up, but provide a high degree of reliability due to the multiple paths for data that are provided by the large number of redundant links between nodes.

Use the predesigned objects, templates and samples of the Computer and Networks Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to create your own professional Computer Network Diagrams quick and easy.

Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later. There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.

The Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is a progressive distance-vector dynamic routing protocol. It was developed by the Cisco Systems and is available as an open standard from 2013. EIGRP is used to help automate routing decisions and configuration of the computer network. It allows the routers of the same logical area automatically share route information.

The Internet is a giant computer network which connects computers all over the world. It is integral part of human society and business. But the serious question for network engineers, designers, lawmakers and enforcers is the need for protect the Internet networks from the Internet crimes, hacking and attacks. There are quite a number of hardware, software and physical methods of protection against them. The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the tools of Network Security Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software. They show protection networks with Firewalls and other network security devices.
