Networks classification

 

Network  classification  are broadly  based on  these  two basic  approaches transmission  technologies.

Classification based on Transmission Technology

Computer network can be broadly categorized into two types based on transmission technologies.

Point to point Network

In point to point network data of messages from  one host  is transmitted over to other host ( which  are connected ) either director indirect. They  are not  intended to other. In  direct link  hosts  are directly connected via a physical communication medium  during data transfer. In indirect link the data is transferred over intermediate IMPs unit it reaches to destination  host. Here the data  from  incoming  line   arrive at the intermediate IMPs( internet messaging program) which  store it and waits for free l link. If it find free link  the data is sent over it otherwise it sends over next intermediate IMPs. This process is repeated until  the data  is received by the destination host. A communication systems supporting point to point  network  is defined  as point  to point  store  and forward or  packet switch  subnet.
