Star network

A computer network with a star network topology, in its simplest form, consists of one central, or hub computer which acts as a router to transmit messages between connected computers by a store-and-forward[?] or switching system. A hierarchical extension of the star topology allows each node connected by a hub to in turn play the role of a hub for a disjoint set of leaf nodes[?]. In this case multiple routes[?] may exist between any two given nodes of the network.
