Differences between Point-to-Point and Multi-point Communication

  • Last Updated : 13 May, 2019

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.NOPoint to point communicationMultipoint 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.
