Star Network Topology

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

Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols

Cisco Network Topology represents the arrangement of worldwide recognized and standardized Cisco network symbols, icons, shapes, and stencils which help visualize the schemes of computer networks. Any equipment used in Cisco networks is also named a node and network topology diagram represents the scheme of connection the used nodes. Cisco Network Diagram illustrates how the signals enter on the networked devices and how the data spread within a network from one device to another. These diagrams are useful for engineers while constructing computer networks and working with them. Cisco Network Diagrams solution included to Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park contains quick-start templates, professionally designed samples and examples, and numerous libraries with a lot of predesigned vector design elements, icons, and shapes of Cisco equipment, components, devices, links which provide for ConceptDraw PRO users a perfect possibility of simple and quick drawing Cisco Network Diagrams and Schematics, Network Designs and Maps of any complexity.

Hierarchical 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 Hierarchical network topology. A Hierarchical network topology interconnects multiple groups that are located on the separate layers to form a larger network. Each layer concentrates on the specified functions, this allows to choose the right equipment for the layer. Read more
"Star networks are one of the most common computer network topologies. In its simplest form, a star network consists of one central switch, hub or computer, which act as a conduit to transmit messages. This consists of a central node, to which all other nodes are connected; this central node provides a common connection point for all nodes through a hub. In star topology, every node (computer workstation or any other peripheral) is connected to a central node called a hub or switch. The switch is the server and the peripherals are the clients. Thus, the hub and leaf nodes, and the transmission lines between them, form a graph with the topology of a star." [Star network. Wikipedia]

Network Security

The Internet is a giant computer network which connects computers all over the world. It is integral part of human society and business. But the serious question for network engineers, designers, lawmakers and enforcers is the need for protect the Internet networks from the Internet crimes, hacking and attacks. There are quite a number of hardware, software and physical methods of protection against them. The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw PRO using the tools of Network Security Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw PRO software. They show protection networks with Firewalls and other network security devices. Read more

Wireless 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 Wireless network topology. Wireless network topology is a logical topology. It shows how the computers connect and interact each other when there is no physical connection, no cables connecting the computers. The computers communicate each other directly, using the wireless devices. Wireless networks can have infrastructure or ad hoc topology. Read more

Hybrid Network Topology

A network topology is the topological structure or the arrangement of different elements of computer network. There are several basic types of network topologies, such as star, ring, bus, mesh. But the most popular is a combination of two or more diverse basic network topologies, which is known as hybrid network topology. The examples of hybrid topology are: star-bus, star-ring topologies, etc. Each resulting hybrid topology has its own features, advantages and limitations of its components. Hybrid network topologies are more flexible, reliable, and have increased fault tolerance, the faults in them can be easily diagnosed and corrected, new nodes can be easily added. But at the same time hybrid topologies often are sufficiently expensive and difficult for managing. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with the tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area is perfect for schematic description various types of computer network topologies and easy designing Hybrid network topology diagrams.

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).
