Understanding Device Level Connection Topologies

Overview:

In this white paper, Advantech discusses the background, device, network, and the different topologies possible.

Understanding Device Level Connection Topologies
Topology may be used as a term to describe geometric characteristics of the interconnection of points in two or three dimensional space. Network may be used as a term to describe the existence of a connection between various points, typically for the purpose of exchanging information. When these terms are combined, as in "network topology," the implication is to describe the geometric shape of the lines of communication, such as "ring" or "star." In this white paper, Advantech discusses the background, device, network, and the different topologies possible.
