Differences between Point-to-Point and Multi-point Communication
In this section we shall see the differences between Point-to-Point and Multi-point Communication. In point to point communication, there is dedicated link between two nodes and in multi-point communication, link is provided all times for share the connection among nodes.
Now, the differences between these to communication with the help of diagram are given below:
|S.NO||Point to point communication||Multipoint Communication|
|1.||Point to point communication means the channel is shared between two devices.||Multipoint Communication means the channel is shared among multiple devices or nodes.|
|2.||In this communication, There is dedicated link between two nodes.||In this communication, link is provided all times for share the connection among nodes.|
|3.||In this communication, the entire capacity is reserved between these connected two devices.||In this communication, the entire capacity is depend on the quick sharing.|
|4.||In this communication, there is one transmitter and one receiver.||In this communication, there is one transmitter and many receivers.|
|5.||In point-to-point connections, the smallest distance is most important to reach the receiver.||In Multi-point connections, the smallest distance is not important to reach the receiver.|
|6.||Point-to-point communication provides security and privacy because communication channel is not shared.||Multi-point communication does not provides security and privacy because communication channel is shared.|
