Hybrid satellite and common carrier network diagram

"A communications satellite or comsat is an artificial satellite sent to space for the purpose of telecommunications. Modern communications satellites use a variety of orbits including geostationary orbits, Molniya orbits, elliptical orbits and low (polar and non-polar) Earth orbits.
For fixed (point-to-point) services, communications satellites provide a microwave radio relay technology complementary to that of communication cables. They are also used for mobile applications such as communications to ships, vehicles, planes and hand-held terminals, and for TV and radio broadcasting." [Communications satellite. Wikipedia]

"Satellite Internet access is Internet access provided through communications satellites. ...
Satellite Internet generally relies on three primary components: a satellite in geostationary orbit (sometimes referred to as a geosynchronous Earth orbit, or GEO), a number of ground stations known as gateways that relay Internet data to and from the satellite via radio waves (microwave), and a VSAT (very-small-aperture terminal) dish antenna with a transceiver, located at the subscriber's premises. Other components of a satellite Internet system include a modem at the user end which links the user's network with the transceiver, and a centralized network operations center (NOC) for monitoring the entire system. Working in concert with a broadband gateway, the satellite operates a Star network topology where all network communication passes through the network's hub processor, which is at the center of the star. With this configuration, the number of remote VSATs that can be connected to the hub is virtually limitless." [Satellite Internet access. Wikipedia]

Network Diagram Software (PRO)

Network Diagrams are used to visually represent the network architecture, to illustrate the network structure, how the computers and other elements of the network are connected each other using a variety of network symbols, clipart and connection lines. They are incredibly useful on the stages of projecting computer network, of its construction and exploitation. Professionally designed and accurate Network Diagrams are equally convenient for computer engineers and users. You can construct them by hand on the paper or use special network diagramming software, such as ConceptDraw PRO. Having at disposal the powerful network diagramming tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution included to ConceptDraw Solution Park, you can succeed in drawing various types of Computer Network Diagrams, among them Network Communication Plans, Logical Network Diagrams, Network Topology Diagrams, LAN and WAN Diagrams, Network Floor Plan Layouts, Computer Network System Diagrams, Web-based Network Diagrams, Wireless Network Diagrams, Cisco Network Diagram, and others.

"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]

Network Diagram Examples

Network diagram is a chart which represents nodes and connections between them in computer network or any telecommunication network, it is a visual depiction of network architecture, physical or logical network topology. There are used common icons for the Network diagrams design, such as icons of various network appliances, computer devices, routers, clouds, peripheral devices, digital devices, etc. Network diagrams can represent networks of different scales (LAN level, WAN level) and detailization. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming software enhanced with Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area includes huge collection of computer and network templates, design objects and stencils, and numerous quantity of Network diagram examples and samples, among them: Basic Computer Network Diagrams, Communication Network Diagram, Wireless Router Network Diagram, LAN Topology Diagram, Computer Network System Design Diagram, Mobile Satellite Communication Network, Web-based Network Diagram, Hybrid Network Diagram, and many others.

This vehicular network diagram example was drawn on the base of picture illustrating the article "Automatic Vehicle Location: Rural Transit" from the website of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT).
"Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems calculate the real-time location of any vehicle equipped with a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) receiver. Data are then transmitted to the transit center with use of radio or cellular communications and can be used immediately for daily operations as well as archived for further analysis.
As a stand-alone technology, an AVL system can be used to monitor on-time performance. When combined with other technologies, AVL can deliver many benefits in the areas of fleet management, service planning, safety and security, traveler information, fare payment, vehicle component monitoring, and data collection. Since the greatest benefits from AVL are achieved by combining it with other Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies, AVL is most appropriate for large rural agencies with more than 30 vehicles that plan to implement a comprehensive ITS."

"General packet radio service (GPRS) is a packet oriented mobile data service on the 2G and 3G cellular communication system's global system for mobile communications (GSM). GPRS was originally standardized by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in response to the earlier CDPD and i-mode packet-switched cellular technologies. It is now maintained by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).
GPRS usage is typically charged based on volume of data transferred, contrasting with circuit switched data, which is usually billed per minute of connection time. Usage above the bundle cap is either charged per megabyte or disallowed.
GPRS is a best-effort service, implying variable throughput and latency that depend on the number of other users sharing the service concurrently, as opposed to circuit switching, where a certain quality of service (QoS) is guaranteed during the connection. In 2G systems, GPRS provides data rates of 56–114 kbit/second. 2G cellular technology combined with GPRS is sometimes described as 2.5G, that is, a technology between the second (2G) and third (3G) generations of mobile telephony. It provides moderate-speed data transfer, by using unused time division multiple access (TDMA) channels in, for example, the GSM system. GPRS is integrated into GSM Release 97 and newer releases."
