bus network

(networking)
A network in which all nodes are connected to a single wire (the bus). The two endpoints will have a terminator. Bus networks typically use CSMA/CD techniques to determine which node transmits data on the wire at any given time.

Examples are Ethernet 10Base2 and 10Base5 networks.

See also star network, ring network.

bus network

A network topology that uses a common pathway between all devices. Ethernet 10Base5 and 10Base2 are examples of bus networks. See bus and Ethernet.
