"Network Mapping Software.
A number of software tools exist to design computer network diagrams / or generate visual maps of networks, servers, storage, services, data centers, and other peripherals. Broadly, there are two types of software tools - those that help create diagrams manually and those that generate them using automated / semi-automated approaches.
Type of Software.
(1) Manual - allows users to design and draw logical and physical topology diagrams by manually placing icons and connections.
(2) Automated - generate topology diagrams / maps by traversing the network and automatically discovering resident devices or by importing network data." [Comparison of network diagram software. Wikipedia]

"A bus network is a network topology in which nodes are connected in a daisy chain by a linear sequence of buses. ...
The bus is the data link in a bus network. The bus can only transmit data in one direction, and if any network segment is severed, all network transmission ceases.

A host on a bus network is called a station or workstation. In a bus network, every station receives all network traffic, and the traffic generated by each station has equal transmission priority. Each network segment is, therefore, a collision domain. In order for nodes to transmit on the same cable simultaneously, they use a media access control technology such as carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) or a bus master." [Bus network. Wikipedia]

"A computer network diagram is a schematic depicting the nodes and connections amongst nodes in a computer network or, more generally, any telecommunications network. ...
Readily identifiable icons are used to depict common network appliances e.g. Router, and the style of lines between them indicate the type of connection. Clouds are used to represent networks external to the one pictured for the purposes of depicting connections between internal and external devices, without indicating the specifics of the outside network. ...
Cisco uses its own brand of networking symbols. Since Cisco has a large Internet presence and designs a broad variety of network devices, its list of symbols ("Network Topology Icons") is exhaustive." [Computer network diagram. Wikipedia]

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.

Network diagrams with ConceptDraw PRO

Network diagram is effective tool for representing and description the network knots and connections between them in comprehensible graphic view, for studying and analysis them. The network administrators and engineers actively use Physical Network Diagrams and Logical Network Diagrams, which are both indispensable when developing and documenting new networks, and managing existing ones. Network diagrams let clearly represent the network configuration and structure, used protocols, addresses, and also names of network objects. Physical Network Diagrams depict the information about telecommunications data, servers, location of network equipment and number of network users. Logical Network Diagrams describe about logical network structure. It is useful to use the ready sets of network clipart, pictures and symbols for indication the network knots on a diagram, such as developed by professionals and offered in large quantity by Computer Network Diagrams solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park.

"A computer network or data network is a telecommunications network that allows computers to exchange data. In computer networks, networked computing devices (network nodes) pass data to each other along data connections. The connections (network links) between nodes are established using either cable media or wireless media. The best-known computer network is the Internet.
Network devices that originate, route and terminate the data are called network nodes. Nodes can include hosts such as servers and personal computers, as well as networking hardware. Two devices are said to be networked when a device is able to exchange information with another device." [Computer network. Wikipedia]

"A wireless network is any type of computer network that uses wireless data connections for connecting network nodes. Wireless networking is a method by which homes, telecommunications networks and enterprise (business) installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations. Wireless telecommunications networks are generally implemented and administered using radio communication. This implementation takes place at the physical level (layer) of the OSI model network structure. Examples of wireless networks include cell phone networks, Wi-Fi local networks and terrestrial microwave networks." [Wireless network. Wikipedia]

Hotel Network Topology Diagram

Network topology is a layout of various elements of computer network, such as nodes, links, routers, etc. It is a network topological structure which can be depicted logically or physically. Physical topology shows the physical location of network's components and cable connections between network nodes. Logical topology describes the data flows, the circulation of signals in physical topology. The physical and logical topologies for two networks can be identical, while their physical interconnections, the distances between nodes, transmission rates, and/or signal types may be differ. ConceptDraw PRO with Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park lets you design physical and logical network topology diagrams for wireless and wired computer communication networks located in various premises, including the hotels. You can easy design Hotel Network Topology Diagram, diagrams depicted LANs and WLANs, and also any of eight basic topologies (Point-to-point, Star, Bus, Mesh, Ring, Tree, Hybrid, Daisy chain).

Star Network Topology

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
