Network Connection Type

Type of Connection

For communication occur, two devices must be connected in some way to the same link at the same time. There are two possible types of connection: 1) point-to-point connection, 2) multipoint connection.

Point-to-point

This type of connection provides a dedicated link between two devices. The entire capacity of the link is reserved for transmission between those two devices.

Connection medium: cable, wire, microwave, satellite links.


Multipoint

A multipoint (multidrop) connection is one in which more than two specific devices share a single link. If several devices can use the link simultaneously, it is a spatially shared connection. If users must take turns, it is a timeshared connection.
