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

Fully Connected Network Topology Diagram

Fully Connected Network Topology (Complete topology, Full mesh topology) is a network topology characterized by existence of direct links between all pairs of nodes. The Fully connected network including n nodes, contains n(n-1)/2 direct links. This topology is mostly used in military applications. It is a quite expensive network technology and is extremely impractical for the large networks. But when it is set, it provides a high degree of reliability thanks to the large quantity of redundant links between nodes and so multiplicity of paths for the data. The two-node network is also considered as a Fully connected network. Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park offers the predesigned vector stencils libraries, examples and templates for easy designing various Computer network topology diagrams for wired and wireless networks, including the Fully connected topology. This solution is intended to help computer network designers and engineers perfectly illustrate network documentation, reports, presentations, etc. Read more

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

"In computer networking, a wireless access point (AP) is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a wired network using Wi-Fi, or related standards. The AP usually connects to a router (via a wired network) as a standalone device, but it can also be an integral component of the router itself. ...
With the creation of the wireless Access Point (AP), network users are now able to add devices that access the network with few or no cables. An AP normally connects directly to a wired Ethernet connection and the AP then provides wireless connections using radio frequency links for other devices to utilize that wired connection. Most APs support the connection of multiple wireless devices to one wired connection. Modern APs are built to support a standard for sending and receiving data using, these radio frequencies. Those standards, and the frequencies they use are defined by the IEEE. Most APs use IEEE 802.11 standards." [Wireless access point. Wikipedia]

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.

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.

Tree Network Topology Diagram

A Tree network topology (Hierarchical topology) is a hybrid network topology that contains the combination of two or more star networks connected via bus networks. Each star network is a LAN (local area network) with central computer or server and workstation nodes connected to it. The central computers of star networks are connected to a main cable that is called a bus. Each node of the Tree network can have an arbitrary number of child nodes, you can easy add/remove the separate workstations and even the whole star networks, the failure of one workstation will not affect the work of others. This topology is ideal solution when workstations are located in groups within a small physical region, rarely is used in WAN configurations. Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park contains templates, samples and numerous libraries of predesigned vector stencils of computer network devices and equipment, which can be effectively used for designing various network topologies diagrams, including Tree Network Topology.

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).
