Differences between Bus and Star topology

S.No. Basis of difference Bus Topology Star Topology
1 Structure All computers / nodes are connected to a single central cable (backbone). All computers / nodes are connected to central host directly.
2 Linearity Bus topology is linear. Star topology is non-linear.
3 Requirement of Switch Switch is not required. Switch is used to connect the computers.
4 Connection between nodes It has no connection between nodes but connect to backbone. It has no connection between nodes.
5 Ease of trouble shooting Easy identification of cable faults. Difficult when one of the nodes fails; but easy to troubleshoot when the host fails.
6 Easy of adding or removing nodes Easy to implement and extend. New devices can be added to the backbone or to the existing nodes. Easy to implement and extend. Only add the nodes or devices to the host.
7 Node failure Failure of a node doesn"t affect the entire LAN as long as the backbone is working. Failure of a node doesn"t affect the entire LAN as long as host is working.
