WAN topologies are characterized by redundancy and are categorized as follows:
- Hub-and-spoke (remote nodes connect to a central device)
- Full-mesh (all nodes are connected to each other)
- Partial-mesh (hub-and-spoke, with additional redundant links between nodes)
Full-mesh topologies require a large number of nodes, which adds extra overhead. If you have “n” nodes you will need n*(n-1)/2 connections. For example, if you need to connect four nodes in a full-mesh topology, that will require six different connections. Full-mesh is the best . . .
