  World Learning STAR Network Bosnia-Herzegovina
In response to the trafficking crisis, STAR Network of World Learning has launched two related projects: the Bosnia-Herzegovina Anti-Trafficking Community Mobilization (BATCOM) Project, started in October 2002 and the Croatia Trafficking Prevention Activity (CTPA), started in September 2004.
The conference and the network received support from FBiH President Karlo Filipovic who remarked that "the workshop recommendations were seriously prepared" and that he would support the network.
A tripartite system should be respected by creating an economic-social council at all authority levels, and women should be represented in decision-making positions on all three sides (government, employers associations, and trade unions).

  Network topology Summary
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.
For example, a tree network connected to a tree network is still a tree network, but two star networks connected together (known as extended star) exhibit hybrid network topologies.

 What is tree network? - a definition from Whatis.com
Each star network is a local area network (LAN) in which there is a central computer or server to which all the workstation nodes are directly linked.
Thus, a tree network is a bus network of star networks.
The workstations are shown as small spheres, the central computers of the star networks are shown as larger spheres, connections within star networks are shown as short lines, and the bus is shown as a long, heavy line.

 Network Topologies
In a Bus, all the devices on the network are connected to a common cable.
In a Tree network, each device is connected to its own port on a concentrator in the same manner as in a Star.
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.

  Star network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Star networks are one of the most common computer network topologies.
In its simplest form, a star network consists of one central switch, hub or computer which acts as a router to transmit messages.
The star topology reduces the chance of network failure by connecting all of the systems to a central node.

 Network Topologies Overview
Star topology: The network nodes are connected to a central node, which rebroadcasts all transmissions received from any peripheral node to all peripheral nodes on the network, including the originating node.
Tree topology: The network nodes are arranged as a tree, which resembles an interconnection of star networks in that individual peripheral nodes are required to transmit to and receive from one other node only and are not required to act as repeaters or regenerators.
For example, a tree network connected to a tree network is still a tree network, but two star networks connected together exhibit hybrid network topologies.

 Lesson 4 - Network Designs (Topology)
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.
With a star topology, expanding a network is 4.

 What is star network? - a definition from Whatis.com
The star network topology works well when workstations are at scattered points.
If the workstations are reasonably close to the vertices of a convex polygon and the system requirements are modest, the ring network topology may serve the intended purpose at lower cost than the star network topology.
In a star network, a cable failure will isolate the workstation that it links to the central computer, but only that workstation will be isolated.

 NETWORK TOPOLOGY Star Topology
Networks can be classified by their topology, which is the basic geometric arrangement of the network.
Star networks represent a very popular form of configuration for time-sharing systems in which a central computer makes available resources and databases for several "client" computers to share.
In a star network, the central unit may be a host computer or a file server.

 A Star-Shaped Ring Network with High Maintainability
Ring networks exhibit a number of desirable properties: they are simple in concept and in implementation; one-way point-to-point signal transmission minimizes analog circuitry and design problems; the cost of a small net is small; and transmission speed is not limited by propagation time.
The repeater ring network uses point-to-point transmission and also has a hardware complement--a repeater at each node--that is a constant percentage of the system cost as the network grows.
The ring network repeater can be designed to provide a partial solution to the problem of repeater failure, since that is almost certainly the most significant of the four problems.

 Network Switch
A network switch is a networking device that connects network segments.
Network switches are capable of inspecting the data packets as they are received, determining the source and destination device of that packet, and forwarding that packet appropriately.
In the WAN network, ATM switches, Frame Relay and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches are often used.

 Intel® InBusiness™ Products - Common Network Layouts
Network layout (also called "topology") refers to the way a network is physically designed.
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.
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.

 NetworkDesigner.net - All about Network Design
Bus networks (not to be confused with the system bus of a computer) use a common backbone to connect all devices.
A star network features a central connection point called a "hub" that may be an actual hub or a switch.
This bus/star hybrid approach supports future expandability of the network much better than a bus (limited in the number of devices due to the broadcast traffic it generates) or a star (limited by the number of hub ports) alone.

 star network - Webopedia.com
A local-area network (LAN) that uses a star topology in which all nodes are connected to a central computer.
The main advantages of a star network is that one malfunctioning node doesn't affect the rest of the network, and it's easy to add and remove nodes.
The main disadvantage of star networks is that they require more cabling than other topologies, such as a bus or ring networks.

 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.

 NM210: NETWORK MANAGEMENT
There are limits imposed on the length of drop cable from the PC network card to the jack, the length of the horizontal wiring, and from the jack to the wiring closet.
Large networks are made by combining several individual network segments together, using appropriate devices like routers and/or bridges.
Ideally, if workstations on network segment A needed access to a server, the best place to locate that server is on the same segment as the workstations, as this minimises traffic on the other segment, and avoids the delay incurred by the bridge.

 Network Tutorial: 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.
With a star topology, expanding a network is easily done by adding another concentrator.
