A linear bus network is a network topology in which nodes are directly connected to a common linear (or branched) half-duplex link called a bus.

The process of sending data one bit at a time, sequentially, over a communication channel or computer bus

Line Power refers to equipment that is electrically powered by the telecommunications circuit to which it connects

Direct current is a flow of electrical charge carriers that always takes place in the same direction.

A battery is a  combination of two or more cells electrically connected to work together to produce electric energy.

A resilient topology is one that can continue to function despite disruptances at or between nodes.

A network topology is the physical and logical arrangement of the various elements of a computer network.

Relevant technologies are examples of the types of equipment used in a specific application.

Range is the distance that a signal can travel to facilitate communication between network nodes. Nodes that are far away from each other require communication technologies with long ranges.

Quality of service (QoS) is the overall performance of a network, particularly the performance seen by the users of the network. Bandwidth, latency, and uptime of a network are some of the measures of network adequacy and QoS.
