Bus Network Topology

Bus Network Topology

Bus Network Topology is a network topology that represents one shared cable (called a bus or backbone) to which are directly connected all workstations or computers of the network. At the ends of the cable are situated the terminators for prevention the signal reflection. All workstations at Bus Network Topology have equal rights and transfer the information sequentially, one after another. The message sent by one of workstations is extended on all computers of the network and each computer checks to whom it is addressed, if for him, then processes it. Addition of new subscribers to the "bus" is quite simple, the failures of individual computers are not dangerous, and the lack of a central subscriber even more increases its reliability. Computer and Networks solution included to Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park offers templates, samples and numerous vector stencils libraries that can be used to effectively design different physical and logical network topologies diagrams for wireless and wired computer networks, including Bus Network Topology.

Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network Examples

Wide area network (WAN) is a type of telecommunication network, which is used to connect the computers on a wide geographical area. WANs are quite popular and widely used networks, the most known and bright example of WAN is the Internet. They offer exceedingly convenient and quick way of exchanging information and data between employees, suppliers, and clients that are geographically remote each other. WANs are often constructed from several smaller networks (LANs, MANs, etc.) and use effectively different packet switching and circuit switching technologies. ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful network diagramming software. Including Computer and Networks Area with extensive variety of solutions, ConceptDraw PRO offers a lot of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils, wide set of examples and samples, helping the business and government entities effectively design professional-looking Wide area networks (WANs) and Wide area network topology diagrams of any complexity. Wide export capabilities of ConceptDraw PRO greatly extend your opportunities. Read more

Hybrid Network Topology

A network topology is the topological structure or the arrangement of different elements of computer network. There are several basic types of network topologies, such as star, ring, bus, mesh. But the most popular is a combination of two or more diverse basic network topologies, which is known as hybrid network topology. The examples of hybrid topology are: star-bus, star-ring topologies, etc. Each resulting hybrid topology has its own features, advantages and limitations of its components. Hybrid network topologies are more flexible, reliable, and have increased fault tolerance, the faults in them can be easily diagnosed and corrected, new nodes can be easily added. But at the same time hybrid topologies often are sufficiently expensive and difficult for managing. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with the tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area is perfect for schematic description various types of computer network topologies and easy designing Hybrid network topology diagrams.

Network Diagram Examples

Network diagram is a chart which represents nodes and connections between them in computer network or any telecommunication network, it is a visual depiction of network architecture, physical or logical network topology. There are used common icons for the Network diagrams design, such as icons of various network appliances, computer devices, routers, clouds, peripheral devices, digital devices, etc. Network diagrams can represent networks of different scales (LAN level, WAN level) and detailization. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming software enhanced with Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area includes huge collection of computer and network templates, design objects and stencils, and numerous quantity of Network diagram examples and samples, among them: Basic Computer Network Diagrams, Communication Network Diagram, Wireless Router Network Diagram, LAN Topology Diagram, Computer Network System Design Diagram, Mobile Satellite Communication Network, Web-based Network Diagram, Hybrid Network Diagram, and many others.

Network Topology

Network topology describes a way of organizing the physical connectivity of computers and other network components. All networks are built based on basic topologies: bus, star, ring, mesh. The basic topologies themselves are not complicated, but in practice we often face with their complex combinations. A particular choice of one or another topology affects the composition of necessary network equipment, opportunity of network expansion and method of network management. Bus topology is widespread and the most simple, it uses a single cable along which are connected all computers. In Star topology each computer is connected by a separate cable to common hub device located in a center of network. In networks with Ring topology, the data are transmitted around the ring from one computer to another, usually in one direction. In Mesh networks, only the computers with intensive data exchange are connected. ConceptDraw PRO software extended with powerful tools of solutions included to Computer and Networks area, contributes to high-quality design Network Topology Diagrams of different types. Read more

Point to Point Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. This sample shows the Point-to-point network topology. Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network. Point-to-point network topology is a simple topology that displays the network of exactly two hosts (computers, servers, switches or routers) connected with a cable. Point-to-point topology is widely used in the computer networking and computer architecture. Read more

Tree Network Topology Diagram

A Tree network topology (Hierarchical topology) is a hybrid network topology that contains the combination of two or more star networks connected via bus networks. Each star network is a LAN (local area network) with central computer or server and workstation nodes connected to it. The central computers of star networks are connected to a main cable that is called a bus. Each node of the Tree network can have an arbitrary number of child nodes, you can easy add/remove the separate workstations and even the whole star networks, the failure of one workstation will not affect the work of others. This topology is ideal solution when workstations are located in groups within a small physical region, rarely is used in WAN configurations. Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park contains templates, samples and numerous libraries of predesigned vector stencils of computer network devices and equipment, which can be effectively used for designing various network topologies diagrams, including Tree Network Topology.

Fully Connected Network Topology Diagram

Fully Connected Network Topology (Complete topology, Full mesh topology) is a network topology characterized by existence of direct links between all pairs of nodes. The Fully connected network including n nodes, contains n(n-1)/2 direct links. This topology is mostly used in military applications. It is a quite expensive network technology and is extremely impractical for the large networks. But when it is set, it provides a high degree of reliability thanks to the large quantity of redundant links between nodes and so multiplicity of paths for the data. The two-node network is also considered as a Fully connected network. Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park offers the predesigned vector stencils libraries, examples and templates for easy designing various Computer network topology diagrams for wired and wireless networks, including the Fully connected topology. This solution is intended to help computer network designers and engineers perfectly illustrate network documentation, reports, presentations, etc. Read more
