Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples

Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples

Campus Area Network (CAN) is a computer network which provides wireless access to the Internet or LAN for the users located in two or more buildings on the limited geographical area, or in the open space surrounding these buildings. Campus Area Network is usually set in campus of a university or college, but the same kind of planning and design can be applied for other purposes, for enterprises, office buildings, military bases, industrial complexes, public places like supermarkets, entertainment centers, etc. Another form of temporary CAN can exist during some special events such as rallies, music festivals. The elementary Campus Area Network can also arise spontaneously, due to the distance of spread the radio signals from the access points that are not limited by buildings walls. It is also sensible to have additional access points for the larger and more complex CANs, located at specially places chosen for serving clients. Design easy diagrams and schemes for the Campus Area Networks with Computer Network Diagrams solution for ConceptDraw PRO. Read more

Home area networks (HAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Home Area Networks (HAN) is a type of local area network that is used in an individual home. The home computers can be connected together by twisted pair or by a wireless network. HAN facilitates the communication and interoperability among digital devices at the home, allows to easier access to the entertainments and increase the productivity, organize the home security. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the home network diagram. Read more

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

Personal area (PAN) networks. Computer and Network Examples

Personal area network (PAN) is a network organized on a limited area and used for data transmission between various personal devices, such as computers, tablets, laptops, telephones, different digital and mobile devices, etc. and also for connecting to higher level network and Internet. PAN is used to manage the interconnections of IT devices which surround a single user and generally contains such appliances, as cordless mice, keyboard, phone, and Bluetooth handsets. PANs can be wired with computer buses, or wirelessly connected to the Internet using such network technologies as Bluetooth, Z-Wave, ZigBee, IrDa, UWB, Body Area Network. PANs have a lot of pros and cons, they are expedient, lucrative and handy, but sometimes have bad connection with other networks on the same radio bands, Bluetooth has distance limits and slow data transfer speed, but is comparatively safe. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming software supplied with numerous solutions of Computer and Networks Area included to ConceptDraw Solution Park perfectly suits for designing the Personal Area Networks.

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

Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies. 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

Local network area. Computer and Network Examples

A Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network that interconnects computers on the limited area such as a home, office building, school, bank, computer laboratory, etc. ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software. It provides the Computer and Networks Area with many Solutions that contain the wide set ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils and examples to help you design the LANs quick and easy. Read more

Network Diagram Software Home Area Network

A Home Area Network (HAN) is a type of computer network which provides a communication between devices in neighborhood of a home. For construction a HAN are used modem, router, network switch, wireless access point, home automation controller, network bridge, and also various smart devices, network printers, handheld mobile computers, etc. All these devices are capable efficiently interact each other and so give wide possibilities for automation the execution of repetitious tasks, increasing a home security, improvement quality of life inside a home, enhancement a personal productivity, and also make easier an access to entertainment. Home Area Networks can be constructed using a wired or wireless technologies to connect endpoints. Wireless is predominant for homes due to the ease of its installation and absence of unsightly cables. ConceptDraw PRO software extended with Computer Network Diagrams solution lets easy visualize the communication schemes of Home Area Networks and illustrate the networks arrangement in houses on the Home Area Network Diagrams.
