Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).
Computer and Network Examples
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunication networks that implements the data transfer from one network node to another using the labels. The labels identify the virtual links among the distant nodes. MPLS supports many access technologies (such as T1/E1, DSL, ATM, Frame Relay, etc.) and can encapsulate the packets of different network protocols. Now MPLS almost replaced on the marketplace the such technologies as Frame Relay, ATM.
ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software that provides the Computer and Networks solution with wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils and examples to help you design the MPLS Networks quick and easy.

Building Drawing Design Element: PlumbingPlanning a water supply system is one of the stages of developing a building drawing. Although materials are constantly improved, design elements for plumbing haven't changed sufficiently for decades. This is due to necessity of maintaining very old systems. The plan and schematic drawing of plumbing equipment, water pipe junctions and, kitchen facilities a is a rather significant element of a building plan. The suite of 4 vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw solution for Plumbing and Piping Planning includes near 130 vector images of pipes, boilers, water pipe junctions, tanks and other plumbing devices, helpful when creating plumbing and piping plans, and blueprints of sewerage or water supply systems.
Building Plan Software. Building Plan ExamplesThe Building Plans are very useful and even necessary for architects, builders, designers and simple for those who want to build the home, office, flat or anyone other building. They are also convenient for those who want to design or redesign the home, flat, room, etc.

Star Network TopologyNodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical. This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.

Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbolsNetwork infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation. Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety. Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on
Tree Network Topology DiagramWhen designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies. This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.

Network TopologiesWhen describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology. There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.
