Does the Cable types determine which type of frame it will carry? Just for a example can't i use a fiber cable to create a star topology which carry ethernet frame? I know this might sound bizzare that why some one will use a fiber cable that in start topology but just to clear the concepts ?
As an example the LAN is a network which is in the close geographical location.
So what i get from this is any network which is established in a small geograohical location is a LAN.
A physical topology is the way devices are connected physically so are there any standard topology which we follow while establishing out a LAN like star,ring,mesh,bus ?
And what are the roles of cables which we use to establish a network ?
Does the frame type is decided by the type of cables which we use to establish a network ? and does the topogy is dependt on the type of cable which we use in establishing the network?
Please help though i understand the topogy, network and cables differently but don't know how they amalgamate in a network ?
