Which of the following workstations will be affected when a SINGLE station on a physical ring network fails?
A. The workstations directly connected to the failed station. B. The workstations downstream from the failed station. C. The workstations upstream from the failed station. D. All the workstations on the network.
All the workstations on the network.-a ring topology has a very low fault tolerance. a failure of any node on the network will bring the entire network down.incorrect answers:a: in the star topology, every node is connected to a central distribution device such as a hub or switch. a failure of a link to any node on this network will only affect that node.b, c: the ring topology has no fault tolerance. a single failure in these networks will bring the entire network down.references:david groth and toby skandier, network+ study guide (4th edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2005, pp. 10-11, 12, 52.david groth, network+ study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 11-12, 23.david groth and dan newland, a+ complete study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 313-314.
