The goal of this paper is to provide a brief view on Computer Network Topologies for Data Communication that may be useful to Computer Network Engineers in understanding to engineer the complex, large and interdisciplinary systems of systems and aiming to support the in designing of interconnection systems for data communications. The classification of Network topologies by how they are implemented is considered in detail through several aspects. Each kind of topology is used to achieve a particular task and capture the structure of the system at various levels of detail. In recent days for computing, distributed computer systems are playing a vital role and popular issue. It delivers high end performance at a low cost. Autonomous computers are connected by means of a communication network in a distributed computing environment which is arranged in a geometrical shape called network topology. In the present paper a detailed study and analysis on network topologies is presented. Definitions of Physical and Logical Topologies are also provided
