Star topology is one of the four basic topologies of network communication. In star topology, all network devices connects to a controller or hub. This controller or hub enables communication among the network devices. Devices does not connect directly to each other as in Mesh topology.
Mesh topology is one of the four basic topologies of network communication. This is a point-to-point connection. That means, each devices in the network connects to each other device directly. Mesh topology offers speedy connection between devices due to dedicated communication channel.
A network system enables data communication between 2 or more devices. Communication links or channels connects these devices. This link or communication cannel can be of 2 types; point-to-point and multipoint connection. Both of these connections has their advantages and disadvantages and use cases.
