Home area networks (HAN). Computer and Network Examples

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

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.

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

Local Area Network (LAN) is a network which consists of computers and peripheral devices connected each other and to the local domain server, and covers a little territory or small number of buildings, such as home, school, laboratory, office, etc. LAN serves for few hundreds of users. It includes many cables and wires, and demands to design previously a Network diagram. All local area network devices can use the shared printers and disk storage. ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect network diagramming software with examples of LAN Diagrams, templates and predesigned vector objects. ConceptDraw PRO is the ideal choice for network engineers and network designers who need to draw fast and easy Local Area Network Diagrams, for IT specialists, developers and other IT professionals which need to visualize the communication schemes of LAN and visually document the LAN's physical structure and arrangement in houses, offices and other buildings. Ready-to-use vector objects from Computer Network Diagrams solution will help you design LAN diagrams in minutes. 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.

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

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

Guesthouse Network. WIFI network to my guest house

This example shows the computer network diagram of the guesthouse Wi-Fi connection to the Internet. On the diagram is displayed the arrangement of the WLAN equipment that provides the Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) access to the Internet on the guesthouse territory. 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. 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

"A home network or home area network (HAN) is a type of local area network that develops from the need to facilitate communication and interoperability among digital devices present inside or within the close vicinity of a home. Devices capable of participating in this network - smart devices such as network printers and handheld mobile computers - often gain enhanced emergent capabilities through their ability to interact. These additional capabilities can then be used to increase the quality of life inside the home in a variety of ways, such as automation of repetitious tasks, increased personal productivity, enhanced home security, and easier access to entertainment." [Home network. Wikipedia]
