11.4 100BASE-FX Fiber Optic Physical Topology

The physical topology supported by fiber optic link segments is the star. In this topology a set of link segments are connected to a hub, radiating out from the hub to the computers like the rays from a star. Another way to visualize the topology is as a wagon wheel, with the hub at the center and each link segment as a spoke of the wheel. This topology is shown in Figure 5.3.
