What are two characteristics of a mesh network topology? (Choose two.)

  • It is fault tolerant because of redundant connections.
  • Every node connects to every other node on the network.
  • It works best for networks with a large number of nodes.
  • It requires less cabling than either a star or ring topology.

Explanation:

In a (full) mesh network topology, each of the network node, computer and other devices, are interconnected with one another. Every node not only sends its own signals but also relays data from other nodes. In fact a true mesh topology is the one where every node is connected to every other node in the network. This type of topology is very expensive as there are many redundant connections, thus it is not mostly used in computer networks. It is commonly used in wireless networks.
