Ring Network

SmartDraw includes network topology templates like this ring network. Edit and make it your own. Ring networks allow for high speed data transfer between adjacent nodes and no packet collisions, but are only as strong as their weakest link. If any node goes down, so does the network. And any data that has to travel through a lot of nodes will arrive more slowly. Because of its downsides especially related to performance and stability, this type of setup is rarely used today.
