Tree Network

Among all the types of network topologies we can derive that the tree topology is a combination of the bus network and the star network. The tree is a structure that allows you to have many servers on the network and can branch in a social network in many ways. This is particularly useful for colleges, universities and schools so that each of the branches of study can identify relevant systems on their own network and however, connect to a network bigger somehow. A network tree topology is best suited when the network is very widespread and very divided into several ramifications. Like any other network topology, the topology of tree has its advantages and disadvantages.

A network of tree cannot meet the networks of small and it may be a lost cord for small networks. Tree topology has some limitations and configuration must adapt to these limitations. Benefits of the network in tree: * a network tree topology is compatible with different providers of network, even with different hardware vendors. A point-to-point connection is possible with tree networks. ** All computers have access to the largest and other networks.

** It is the best branching networks topology, much more profitable than the ring network. Limitations of the network of tree: * in a network topology the length of the network depends on the type of cable used. ** In the network tree network topology is totally dependent on the trunk which is the main column of the network. If this part fails the entire network would be a failure. * Since the tree topology is large, is difficult to configure and can be complicated after some point. Tree topology follows a hierarchical pattern where it connects each level to the next higher level in a symmetrical pattern. Each level in the hierarchy follows a certain pattern in the connection of nodes. Just as at the top level you can have a single node or two nodes and the next level in the hierarchy might be more nodes working in the connectivity point to point; the third level also has an asymmetric node and each of these levels are connected at the root level of the hierarchy. Think of a tree that it branches off in several directions and all branches of these need the tree trunk and roots to survive. A tree network is very similar to this and that is why the tree topology is called. Network in tree features: * possesses at least three hierarchical levels in the tree topology and all work based on the root node. Tree topology has two types of integral topology, the star and the linear form of the connection nodes (Bus topology). Tree topology functions are determined taking into account the total number of nodes in the network. It doesn’t matter how many nodes there are in each level. Nodes can be added at any level of the hierarchy and there are no limitations. ** The higher levels in the hierarchy is used to perform more functions than the levels lower than over the network.
