Star and Mesh Networks

The most common configurations for connecting multiple devices are the star and mesh networks.


Star Network

In its simplest form, a star network consists of one central hub which acts as a conduit to transmit messages. In a star topology, every device is connected to a central hub.


  • If one node or its connection breaks, it doesn’t affect the other devices and their connections
  • Devices can be added or removed without disturbing the network
  • The central hub is a single point of failure for the network


Mesh Network

Mesh Network

In its simplest form, in a mesh network every device is connected to every other device in the network.


  • There is no single point of failure for the network, so it has high security and reliability
  • It is a more complex and expensive network than the star network
