A Mesh Network Topology is a computer network topology built on the principle of cells. The network workstations are the mesh nodes, they are connected to each other, usually to the principle "each with each" (a fully connected network) and interact in the distribution of data in a network. Each node relays the data for the network and can take the role of switch for other participants. Mesh Network Topology is sufficiently complex to configure, but however it provides a high fault tolerance, has a capability for self-healing and is considered as quite reliable. Large number of nodes' connections assures a wide selection of route of following the traffic within a network, therefore the breaking of one connection will not disrupt the functioning of network as a whole. As a rule, the Mesh Networks are wireless.
The Mesh Network Topology Diagrams of any complexity and Wireless Mesh Network Diagrams are easy for construction in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area. Read more
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

The Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is a progressive distance-vector dynamic routing protocol. It was developed by the Cisco Systems and is available as an open standard from 2013.
EIGRP is used to help automate routing decisions and configuration of the computer network. It allows the routers of the same logical area automatically share route information. Read more
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.

A Daisy Chain is the simple computer network. It is the easiest way to add more Ethernet devices into the network. In the Daisy Chain network one computer is connected to the next without any intervening devices, thus the message is sent from one computer to the next and then to the next and so on. A Daisy Chain can be linear or ring Read more

A 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. Read more
Star is a basic computer network topology in which all nodes (computers and peripheral devices) of the network are connected to the central hub or switch with a point-to-point connection, forming a physical network segment. Such network segment can function separately or as a part of complex network topology. The switch is a server, the peripherals are the clients. The large workload and functions of network management are entrusted on the central computer, all information exchange goes through it, so it must to be obligatory the most powerful.
The star network topology is a simple topology for design and implementation. Its advantages are high performance, flexible administration capabilities, simplicity of adding additional nodes and search of faults, the fact that a failure of one workstation doesn't affect the work of entire network. But the failure of central hub will result the failure of whole network or network segment - it's the main disadvantage. Use the ConceptDraw PRO with Computer and Networks solution to designing Star Network Topology Diagrams fast and easy. Read more

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 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 Read more
