Roaming wireless local area network diagram

"There are two definitions for wireless LAN roaming:
Internal Roaming (1): The Mobile Station (MS) moves from one access point (AP) to another AP within a home network because the signal strength is too weak. An authentication server (RADIUS) performs the re-authentication of MS via 802.1x (e.g. with PEAP). The billing of QoS is in the home network. A Mobile Station roaming from one access point to another often interrupts the flow of data among the Mobile Station and an application connected to the network. The Mobile Station, for instance, periodically monitors the presence of alternative access points (ones that will provide a better connection). At some point, based on proprietary mechanisms, the Mobile Station decides to re-associate with an access point having a stronger wireless signal. The Mobile Station, however, may lose a connection with an access point before associating with another access point. In order to provide reliable connections with applications, the Mobile Station must generally include software that provides session persistence.
External Roaming (2): The MS (client) moves into a WLAN of another Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) and takes their services (Hotspot). The user can independently of his home network use another foreign network, if this is open for visitors. There must be special authentication and billing systems for mobile services in a foreign network." [Wireless LAN. Wikipedia]

Cisco Network Templates

Cisco is a huge multinational company that develops and sells worldwide the]network equipment, mainly for large organizations and telecommunication companies. So, it has large number of enterprise clients in a corporate environment. Therefore many network engineers often draw the Network diagrams for Cisco hardware and are needed in a powerful vector drawing software. ConceptDraw PRO is ideal for this goal, enhanced with professional Cisco Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park it offers a wide variety of vector design objects libraries, samples and also large set of Cisco network templates. The use of templates is the easiest and time-saving way of drawing professional-looking diagrams and schematics. Use them to design Cisco Network Topologies, Cisco Network Diagrams, Cisco ISG Topology Diagrams, Cisco Express Forwarding Diagrams, Rack Diagrams, Network Organization Charts, Wireless Computer Network Diagrams, Vehicular Network Diagrams, and many other types of diagrams without efforts.

"A local area network (LAN) is a computer network that interconnects computers in a limited area such as a home, school, computer laboratory, or office building using network media. The defining characteristics of LANs, in contrast to wide area networks (WANs), include their smaller geographic area, and non-inclusion of leased telecommunication lines. Ethernet over twisted pair cabling, and Wi-Fi are the two most common technology standards currently used to build LANs." [Local area network. Wikipedia]

"The ideal telecommunication network has the following characteristics: broadband, multi-media, multi-point, multi-rate and economical implementation for a diversity of services (multi-services). The Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (B-ISDN) intended to provide these characteristics. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) was promoted as a target technology for meeting these requirements" [Broadband networks. Wikipedia]
"Wireless broadband is technology that provides high-speed wireless Internet access or computer networking access over a wide area. ...
Wireless networks can feature data rates roughly equivalent to some wired networks, such as that of asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) or a cable modem. Wireless networks can also be symmetrical, meaning the same rate in both directions (downstream and upstream), which is most commonly associated with fixed wireless networks. A fixed wireless network link is a stationary terrestrial wireless connection, which can support higher data rates for the same power as mobile or satellite systems.
Few wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) provide download speeds of over 100 Mbit/s; most broadband wireless access (BWA) services are estimated to have a range of 50 km (31 mi) from a tower. Technologies used include LMDS and MMDS, as well as heavy use of the ISM bands and one particular access technology was standardized by IEEE 802.16, with products known as WiMAX."

"Mobile data offloading is the use of complementary network technologies for delivering data originally targeted for cellular networks. Rules triggering the mobile offloading action can be set by either an end-user (mobile subscriber) or an operator. The code operating on the rules resides in an end-user device, in a server, or is divided between the two. End users do data offloading for data service cost control and the availability of higher bandwidth. Operators do it to ease congestion of cellular networks. The main complementary network technologies used for mobile data offloading are Wi-Fi, femtocell and Integrated Mobile Broadcast." [Mobile data offloading. 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]

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.
