Star topology, one of the oldest network topologies, is an arrangement whereby a central host computer receives messages from computers on the network and forwards them to various computers on the network. For one node to communicate with another node on the network, the central controller establishes a circuit, or dedicated path, between the two. The most common example of star topology is the PBX.
