Star Topology:-

Star Topology In the local area network and a star topology, each network host is connected to a central hub with a point to point connection. So we can say that each computer is connected indirectly to help others every node and hub. Each node in this topology (computer workstation or any other peripheral device) is connected to a called hub, router, or switch the central node. Switch is in the client-server and peripherals end.

When is a market not a market? When it’s SDN or NFV, says Gartner

Gartner is sick of being asked to magic quadrants for software-defined network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) craft, and does not intend to do so, even as spectators hold their breath and turn blue. The reason? According to analyst (our emphasis) Joe Skorupa, it’s simple: SDN and NFV are no markets. The first, he says, is an architecture, not a market; the second is a deployment option, no market. With

There is, in fact, a difference between all the network cables. They look very similar from the outside, and one of them will connect to an Ethernet port, but they do have some differences on the inside. If you are not sure which type of cable you have, look at the text on the cable typically it will tell you what kind it is. The differences between each type of cable can be very complicated and have much to do with the network

Not all Ethernet cable is created equally. What is the difference and how do you know which one to use? Let’s look at the technical and physical differences in Ethernet cable categories to help us decide. Ethernet cables are grouped in sequentially numbered categories ( “CAT”) on the basis of different specifications; Sometimes the category is updated with further clarification or testing standards

“Tethering” is using your mobile phone (or other mobile device connected to the Internet) as a modem for another device, usually a laptop or a Wi-Fi-only tablet. This gives you access to the internet on the go, wherever you are – for example, if you try to work in a hotel with free wi-fi (shame on them!) Do if your home Internet connection is temporarily unavailable for some reason . Connect your phone to

Packet switching is the approach of a number of computer network protocols to deliver data across a local or long-distance connection. Examples of packet switching protocols are Frame Relay, IP and X.25.

How Packet Switching Works

Packet switching keeps packaging data in specially formatted units (called packets) that are typically routed from source to destination using network switches and routers.

Each packet contains the address

Cable is the medium through which information usually moves from one network device to another. There are different types of cables which are commonly used in LANs. In some cases, it will use only one type of a network cable, other networks, a variety cable. The type of cable selected for one network is connected to the network topology, protocol and format.

A protocol is a set of rules that governs the communications between computers on a network. For two computers to talk to each other, they must speak the same language. Many different types of network protocols and standards are needed to ensure that your computer (it does not matter what operating system, network, or application you are using) to communicate with another computer on the next desk or half-way around the world.

How To Hide IP Address:-

When you connect to the Internet, your home computer (or network router) is assigned a public IP address. If you visit websites or other Internet servers, is that the public IP address sent and stored in log files stored on those servers. Access logs behind a trail of your Internet activity. If it is possible to somehow hide your public IP address, the Internet activity would be much harder to detect.
