star bus topology
Definition of star bus topology in The Network Encyclopedia.
You can connect hubs by using one of the following:
- Regular 10Base2 or 10BaseT cables with uplink ports on the hubs
- Crossover cables for regular (host) ports on the hub
- Special cables for stackable hubs
When you use this topology with standard Ethernet hubs, do not create an excessively large collision domain by adding too many stations. This will degrade network performance unless you segment the network by using bridges or routers.
