Advantages of Star Topology

Advantages of star network topology are listed in this article.

A network topology or arrangement in which all communication happens via central hub is known as star network topology.

Learn more about this by reading this article on start network topology and star network topology diagram here.

Assuming you know star network, lets move toward the advantages.

Advantages of Star Network Topology

  1. Each device or computer in star network only requires one link and on I/O port to the central controller (hub) and hence star network is less expensive.
  2. Star topology is easier to install and configure.
  3. This network topology is robust because even if one link fails, the others remain unaffected and active.
  4. Fault isolation and identification is easy in star network.
