  Proposed Southern Suburbs Railway Bus Network
These changes, which will be focused on integrating the bus route network with the new train line, will reflect the changes in travel patterns that it is anticipated will eventuate as a result of the new high speed train service.
In general, the conceptual bus route network and service levels and frequencies have been developed using the principles successfully established and used for the Northern Suburbs bus network.
Extensive consultation is currently being carried out on the conceptual bus network and your feedback on the proposed changes are important and will help Transperth to design a bus network that meets community needs.

  Intel® InBusiness™ Products - Common Network Layouts
A networking setup in which a single cable, such as network coaxial cable, referred to as coax (or thin Ethernet), is used to connect one computer to another in a chain to carry data over a network.
The bus layout, sometimes called a backbone, is a linear setup that connects all of the computers in the network or workgroup in a single line on a single cable.
A server-based network maintains the "server" as the manager of the network, with all nodes connected to the server, whether connected to a hub in a star or bus layout.

  Bus network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A bus network is a network architecture in which a set of clients are connected via a shared communications line, called a bus.
Bus networks are the simplest way to connect multiple clients, but often have problems when two clients want to transmit at the same time on the same bus.
A true bus network is passive – the computers on the bus simply listen for a signal; they are not responsible for moving the signal along.

 Bus transport in Singapore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bus transport in Singapore is the most comprehensive and affordable means of public transport for the masses, with over two million rides taken per day on average on the buses of the two main public transport providers SBS Transit and SMRT Corporation.
A famous bus strike was the Hock Lee bus riots on May 12, 1955, where workers from the Hock Lee Amalgamated Bus Company began to go on strike.
The new company formed from this merger was the Singapore Bus Service (the predecessor of SBS Transit), which came into operation in November 1973.

 Network Topologies
In a Bus, all the devices on the network are connected to a common cable.
In a Ring, all the devices on the network are connected to a common cable which loops from machine to machine.
For example, a three or four node mesh network is relatively easy to create, whereas it is impractical to set up a mesh network of 100 nodes -- the number of interconnections would be so ungainly and expensive that it would not be worth the effort.

 Lesson 4 - Network Designs (Topology)
It simply means the design or layout that the network technician or home user choose for their computer network at work or home.
Networking communications with laser are virtually the same as line-of-sight infrared networks.
A linear bus network may be the least expensive way to install a network; you do not have to purchase concentrators.

 Network topology Summary
The topology of a network is the geometric representation of all links and nodes of a network—the structure, consisting of transmission links and processing nodes, that provides communications connectivity between nodes in a network.
Network topology is determined only by the configuration of connections between nodes; it is therefore a part of graph theory.
As in the conventional star network, individual nodes may thus still be isolated from the network by a single-point failure of a transmission path to the node.

 GIS and Bus Operations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
From the perspective of the bus operator, a basic unit of analysis is the bus-trip.
Thus, bus operations analysis is a data-intensive area that can be substantially enhanced by the topological overlaying capabilities and spatial visualization afforded by a well designed and methodically developed Geographic Information System (GIS) framework.
Bus routes or subroutes that follow distinct paths could be considered to be separate routes when specifying a transit route structure.

 Star-bus network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A star-bus network is a combination of a star network and a bus network.
A hub (or concentrator) is used to connect the nodes to the network.
It is a combination of the linear bus and star topologies and operates over one main communication line.

 token bus network Definition: TechEncyclopedia from TechWeb
Stations are logically connected in a ring but are physically connected by a common bus.
All tokens are broadcast to every station in the network, but only the station with the destination address responds.
After transmitting a maximum amount of data, the token is passed to the next logical station in the ring.

 Lesson 3: Network Topology
The bus topology is often referred to as a "linear bus" because the computers are connected in a straight line.
The computers on the network will still be able to function as stand-alone computers; however, as long as the segment is broken, they will not be able to communicate with each other or otherwise access shared resources.
Linear-bus trunks connect the hubs in a star bus, while the hubs in a star ring are connected in a star pattern by the main hub.

 Novell's Networking Primer
In this MAC method each network station is assigned a logical position in an ordered sequence with the last number of the sequence pointing back to the first (the logical order that the stations are assigned need not correspond to any physical order).
The network in this figure includes the following components: three computers connected with a 10Base-T hub by means of unshielded twisted-pair wiring, an Ethernet 10Base-T network adapter installed inside each of the nodes, and a laser printer that is connected to one of the nodes.
This 10Base-T network is connected in a physical star, but it is based on a logical bus that uses a contention scheme for the workstations to gain access to the transmission medium.

 NETWORK TOPOLOGY Bus Topology
In a bus configuration, each computer in the network is responsible for carrying out its own communications without the aid of a central unit.
A common communications cable (the bus) connects all of the computers in the network.
The bus network is less expensive than the star configuration and is thus widely in use for systems that connect only a few microcomputers and systems that do not emphasize the sharing of common resources.

 What is bus network? - a definition from Whatis.com
- A bus network is an arrangement in a local area network (LAN) in which each node (workstation or other device) is connected to a main cable or link called the bus.
Each node is shown as a sphere, the bus appears as a heavy horizontal line, and connections to the bus appear as vertical lines.
A bus network may not work well if the nodes are located at scattered points that do not lie near a common line.

 Basic PC Network Information
A bus network is the simplest to explain and draw, but it’s not often the simplest one to use, especially if computers are distributed around various offices in a building, and then get added, taken away, moved around and so forth.
This is called a star network, but as far as the electrical signals are concerned, they go from one computer to every other computer, no different than the bus network.
When networks get really big, with 100s of systems or more, it’s no longer such a good idea to have each computer look at every packet, because almost none of the packets will be for that computer.

 Token Bus Network (Linktionary term)
A token bus network is similar to a token ring network in that a station must have possession of a token before it can transmit on the network (see "Token and Token-Passing Access Methods").
ARCNET (Attached Resource Computing Network) is a token bus network, although it does not conform to the IEEE 802.4 standards.
IEEE 802.4 token bus networks are constructed with 75-ohm coaxial cable using a bus topology.

 :: Network Topologies :: Bus ::
Bus networks use a common backbone to connect all devices.
The backbone is a high capacity communications medium that joins networks and central network devices on the same floor in a building.
A device wanting to communicate with another device on the network sends a broadcast message onto the wire that all other devices see, but only the intended recipient actually accepts and processes the message (7).

 COMMUNICATIONS Network Topology
Networks can be classified by their topology, which is the basic geometric arrangement of the network.
A ring network allows organizations to engage in distributed data processing system in which computers can share certain resources with other units while maintaining control over their own processing functions.
A hierarchical network (or a tree network) resembles a star network in that several computers are connected to a central host computer (usually a mainframe).

 Lesson 2: The Network Interface Card
After the NIC has been installed, the network cable is attached to the card's port to make the actual physical connection between the computer and the rest of the network.
For example, a card that would work in an Apple computer communicating in a bus network will not work in an IBM computer in a ring environment: The IBM ring requires cards that are physically different from those used in a bus; and Apple uses a different network communication method.
On a bus network, where no one can use the network until the cable is clear, a slow card can increase wait times for all users.

 Network
In this case the Bus is a cable that serves as an access point for all network devices.
If a Bus is the main cable network devices connect to, it stands to reason the cable itself is probably between walls, in the ceiling, possibly under floors, and twisted about in other ways.
Network protocols themselves are rules defining how things will be done such as remote logons, file transfers, and electronic mail for example.

 DCCentral [Network Communication]
Computers on a bus network send their packets to all the computers, even if the packet is for a specific computer only.
To prevent the packet from monopolizing all of the network traffic, the router would occasionally switch to another packet and transfer that one, and then switch back (White 160-1).
Since the Internet is an immense network of networks of networks, messages passed through the Internet must be navigated somehow so that it reaches its destination.

 Dublin Bus - About Us - Reports - Dublin Bus Network Review
The review has identified a number of key issues, which help to contextualise operating circumstances for Dublin Bus and which will need to be addressed if the expectations of the public, the government and the company's of further improving the bus services are to be met.
The key message from all strands of the analysis is that there is a severe lack of capacity on many parts of the bus network.
The bus network will handle most of the patronage growth in the short term, given the Transport21 timeline.

 Network Tutorial: Topology
Ethernet and LocalTalk networks use a linear bus topology.
This leads to the rule that between any two nodes on the network there can only be a maximum of 5 segments, connected through 4 repeaters/concentrators.
This rule does not apply to other network protocols or Ethernet networks where all fiber optic cabling is used.
