Differences between Bus and Ring topology

S.No. Basis of difference Bus Topology Ring Topology
1 Structure All computers / nodes are connected to a single central cable (backbone). All computers / nodes are connected in a loop.
2 Connection between nodes It has no connection between nodes but connect to backbone. It has connection between all the nodes.
3 Ease of trouble shooting Easy identification of cable faults. Easy to troubleshoot - Repair or remove the failing nodes.
4 Easy of adding or removing nodes Easy to implement and extend. New devices can be added to the backbone or to the existing nodes. Difficult because moves, adds and changes of devices can affect the network.
5 Node failure Failure of a node doesn"t affect the entire LAN as long as the backbone is working. A failing node will affect the entire LAN.
