Mesh topology.

A mesh network is one in which each node in the network can be connected through a point-to-point connection to another node (every workstation has a connection to every other component of the network).

Advantages.

  • Fault tolerance (break in a cable segment, traffic can be rerouted through a different path because there are multiple paths to send data from one node to another.)

Disadvantages.

  • Expensive to implement.
