Definition Edit

A hybrid topology is "[a] combination of any two or more network topologies."[1]

Overview Edit

Instances can occur where two basic network topologies, when connected together, can still retain the basic network character, and therefore not be a hybrid network. For example, a tree network connected to a tree network is still a tree network. Therefore, a hybrid network accrues only when two basic networks are connected and the resulting network topology fails to meet one of the basic topology definitions. For example, two star networks connected together exhibit hybrid network topologies. A hybrid topology always accrues when two different basic network topologies are connected.[2]
