Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a great computer network located on the large geographical area or region. It is a network bigger than Local Area Network (LAN), but territorially smaller than Wide Area Network (WAN), its diameter usually ranges from 5 to 50 kilometers. MAN usually includes several buildings or even the whole city (metropolis). It is based on high data rate compounds using the fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. MAN includes a lot of communicating devices, for its construction are used multiple routers, switches and hubs. MAN can combine together several Local Area Networks or Campus Area Networks located in different buildings within a city and provides the Internet connectivity for them. Solutions included to Computer and Networks Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park are the real godsend for those who want design Computer Network Diagrams, and among others the Metropolitan Area Network Diagrams. They offer the libraries with ready-to-use vector design elements, professional-looking examples, samples and templates. Read more

Network Topologies

Network topology is a topological structure of computer network, which can be physical or logical. The physical topology depicts location of different computer network elements such as computers, cables and other devices. The logical topology visually displays network dataflows from one device to another. Sometimes network logical and physical topologies can be the same. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is powerful for drawing network maps and network topologies diagrams of any kinds and complexity thanks to the Computer Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area. ConceptDraw STORE proposes collection of network icons libraries and a lot of Network Topology Diagram examples, samples and templates which were created at ConceptDraw PRO software specially for Computer Network Diagrams solution. There are six basic types of the network topologies: Bus, Star, Ring, Mesh, Tree, Fully Connected. You can fast and easy design professional-looking diagram for each of them using the ConceptDraw PRO tools. There are plenty of web Visio-like diagramming software available. Web based diagrams software can be powerful, but sometimes it is essential to have desktop software. One of the most advanced diagrams tools like Visio for Mac OS is ConceptDraw PRO app. Read more

"Satellite television is television programming delivered by the means of communications satellite and received by an outdoor antenna, usually a parabolic reflector generally referred to as a satellite dish, and as far as household usage is concerned, a satellite receiver either in the form of an external set-top box or a satellite tuner module built into a TV set. Satellite TV tuners are also available as a card or a USB peripheral to be attached to a personal computer. In many areas of the world satellite television provides a wide range of channels and services, often to areas that are not serviced by terrestrial or cable providers.
Direct-broadcast satellite television comes to the general public in two distinct flavors - analog and digital. This necessitates either having an analog satellite receiver or a digital satellite receiver. Analog satellite television is being replaced by digital satellite television and the latter is becoming available in a better quality known as high-definition television." [Satellite television. Wikipedia]
"Mobile television is television watched on a small handheld or mobile device. It includes pay TV service delivered via mobile phone networks or received free-to-air via terrestrial television stations. Regular broadcast standards or special mobile TV transmission formats can be used. Additional features include downloading TV programs and podcasts from the internet and the ability to store programming for later viewing. ...
Mobile TV is among the features provided by many 3G phones." [Mobile television. Wikipedia]
"MobiTV, Inc. ... is a provider of end-to-end mobile media solutions. In 2011, the cloud-based MobiTV converged media platform delivered 1.6 billion minutes of live TV, video-on-demand and downloaded content for offline viewing to all tier-one wireless carriers and major mobile operating systems in the United States. ...
MobiTV furnishes programming from more than 40 television channels, offering live news and sports and a variety of full-episode on-demand shows for streaming or download on mobile devices, tablets, personal computers and other Internet-enabled consumer electronics.
MobiTV-powered TV services, which carry the operator’s brand, are accessible on hundreds of devices across multiple wireless carrier partners. ...

The vector stencils library "Cisco optical" contains 19 symbols of optical devices for drawing Cisco computer network diagrams.
"Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light forms an electromagnetic carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. ... Because of its advantages over electrical transmission, optical fibers have largely replaced copper wire communications in core networks in the developed world. Optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication, and cable television signals. ...
The process of communicating using fiber-optics involves the following basic steps: Creating the optical signal involving the use of a transmitter, relaying the signal along the fiber, ensuring that the signal does not become too distorted or weak, receiving the optical signal, and converting it into an electrical signal." [Fiber-optic communication. Wikipedia]

How To Create CCTV Network Diagram

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses cameras and monitors to carry out video surveillance. Unlike broadcast television this system has only local signal. It is a feature of almost every video camera, yet CCTV is mainly a system for visual control of certain areas such as banks, airports, supermarkets, and other places for security reasons. Developing and installing CCTV system is a time-consuming process. It also requires certain knowledge and skills. ConceptDraw is a solution of setting video cameras rationally. You can achieve two aims at once: CCTV Design Tool saves your time and your money and helps you make professional video surveillance system. Read more
The vector stencils library "Stations" contains 110 symbols of communications equipment, generating, transmitting and receiving stations; substations; satellites; and power plants for power generation and distribution and radio relay systems.
"A power station (also referred to as a generating station, power plant, powerhouse or generating plant) is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power. At the center of nearly all power stations is a generator, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power by creating relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. It depends chiefly on which fuels are easily available, cheap enough and on the types of technology that the power company has access to. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity, and some use nuclear power, but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar, wind, wave and hydroelectric." [Power station. Wikipedia]
"Radio broadcasting is a one-way wireless transmission over radio waves intended to reach a wide audience. Stations can be linked in radio networks to broadcast a common radio format, either in broadcast syndication or simulcast or both. Audio broadcasting also can be done via cable radio, local wire television networks, satellite radio, and internet radio via streaming media on the Internet.
The signal types can be either analog audio or digital audio." [Radio broadcasting. Wikipedia]
