 for bus network
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  bus network
      A network topology in which all nodes are
     connected to a single wire or set of wires (the bus).  Bus
     networks typically use CSMA/CD techniques to determine which
     node should transmit data at any given time.
     Some networks are implemented as a bus, e.g. Ethernet -
     a one-bit bus operating at 10, 100, 1000 or 10,000 megabits
     per second.  Originally Ethernet was a physical layer bus
     consisting of a wire (with terminators at each end) to which
     each node was attached.  Switched Ethernet, while no longer
     physically a bus still acts as one at the logical layers.
