# Star network

A Star network is one of the most common computer network topologies. [1]

## Coaxial cable

Cross-sectional view of a coaxial cable Coaxial cable, or coax (pronounced), is a type of electrical cable that has an inner conductor surrounded by a tubular insulating layer, surrounded by a tubular conducting shield.

## Computer network

A computer network, or data network, is a digital telecommunications network which allows nodes to share resources.

## Graph (discrete mathematics)

In mathematics, and more specifically in graph theory, a graph is a structure amounting to a set of objects in which some pairs of the objects are in some sense "related".

## Host (network)

A network host is a computer or other device connected to a computer network.

## Hub (network science)

In network science, a hub is a node with a number of links that greatly exceeds the average.

## Network topology

Network topology is the arrangement of the elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a communication network.

## Optical fiber

An optical fiber or optical fibre is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass (silica) or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair.

## Repeater

In telecommunications, a repeater is an electronic device that receives a signal and retransmits it.

## Single point of failure

A single point of failure (SPOF) is a part of a system that, if it fails, will stop the entire system from working.

The spoke-hub distribution paradigm is a form of transport topology optimization in which traffic routes are organized as a series of 'spokes' that connect outlying points to a central 'hub.' Simple forms of this distribution/connection model may be contrasted with point-to-point transit systems in which each point has a direct route to every other point, and which was the principal method of transporting passengers and freight until the 1970s.

## Star (graph theory)

In graph theory, a star Sk is the complete bipartite graph K1,k: a tree with one internal node and k leaves (but, no internal nodes and k + 1 leaves when k ≤ 1).

## Twisted pair

Twisted pair cabling is a type of wiring in which two conductors of a single circuit are twisted together for the purposes of improving electromagnetic compatibility.
