5.1.12 Logical topology

Described image
Figure _unit5.1.8 Figure 8

Logical topologies are based on how the communication protocols work and convey a different perspective than physical topologies. The logical topology represents the way data flows through the network. It describes how devices exchange data with network users. As shown in the figure, an integral part of the logical topology is the addressing scheme. This addressing scheme helps identify network and data needs.

After modelling the solution, the next step is to build a prototype.
