Network Topology refers to the way that cables and other pieces of hardware connect to one another. There are four common "base" types of topologies: bus, ring, star, and mesh. There are other types as well, but these are referred to as "hybrid topologies." The most commonly used network topology is a hybrid topology called the Star Bus Topology.

What Types of network topology and give examples of each topology?

Regional Network ---- There are four basic types of network topologies: bus, ring, star, and mesh.There are also many other types as well, but they are hybrid topologies, meaning they are a combination of two or more of the four basic topologies. Two examples of hybrid topologies are the star bus topology and the star ring topology.

What are the advantages of Mesh Network Topology?

Mesh network in which multiple redundant links exist between multiple nodes (computers/hosts/servers/distribution switches, etc) so that the network has a web-like topology. This type of topology has the most redundant and fail-over resilience of any topology. It allows the majority of the network to be up and running even if there are multiple cable cuts or equipment failures. Due to it's increased costs there are two types or versions of this topology: Full Mesh and Partial Mesh. The Full Mesh simply means that each node in the networks connects to EVERY other node on the network. This GREATLY increases the cost and complexity of the network with each additional node. The Partial Mesh means that each node is connected to at least two other nodes (could be more, the more you add the more cost/complexity however the more resilient the network is). This give partial cost/complexity but partial resilience. Contrast with bus network, ring network, and star network.
