Virtual private networks (VPN).
Computer and Network Examples
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network that allows the private networks at a remote location securely connect to the public Internet and provide access only to the intended recipients for transmitting data. VPN is built by creating the virtual point-to-point connection using the dedicated connections, traffic encryption or virtual tunneling protocols.
VPNs allow to computers send and receive data through the public and shared networks as if it was directly connected to the private network. They allow to geographically separated offices of an organization to securely connect forming a one common network. VPNs also allows to Internet users connect to proxy servers for protecting the personal identity and location.
VPNs can be remote-access that connect the individual computers to a network or site-to-site that connect two networks. Today VPNs are based on IP and IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Networks, earlier they were used the Frame Relay and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) virtual circuits.
Computer and Networks Area for ConceptDraw PRO provides professional looking examples, the libraries with ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils to help you create the Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) quick, easy and effective.
Example 1. Virtual private network (VPN).
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual Private Network (VPN) diagram.
The diagrams designed with ConceptDraw PRO are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

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.

Virtual networks. Computer and Network ExamplesA Virtual network is a computer network that consists of virtual network links, i.e. between the computing devices there isn't a physical connection.
Well known forms of network virtualization are virtual networks based on the virtual devices (for example the network based on the virtual devices inside a hypervisor), protocol-based virtual networks (VLAN, VPN, VPLS, Virtual Wireless network, etc.) and their combinations.
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual network.

Rack DiagramsRack Diagrams visualize the rack mounting of computer and network equipment as the drawing of frontal view of the rack with equipment installed. They are used for choosing the equipment or racks to buy, and help to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation.

How To Create Onion DiagramAn onion diagram is a kind of chart that shows the dependencies among parts of an organization or process. The chart displays items in concentric circles, where the items in each ring depend on the items in the smaller rings. The Onion Diagram is able to show layers of a complete system in a few circles.
But how to create Onion Diagram? Now, it's very easy thanks to the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Stakeholder Onion Diagrams Solution from the Management Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
