Network Layout Floor Plans

The network visualization is widely developed in a modern world and is applied by the network and system administrators, and other computer and network-related specialists. The general plan of the premises, electrical plan, plumbing plan, plan of arrangement the furniture, and in many cases network layout plan are the obligatory set of documents when planning a new construction, as well as the major refurbishment of existing buildings. The network layout, the choice of cable type and networking equipment, as well as developing the network layout plan are especially important when we are talking about the premises with complex layout, multifloor buildings and multiroom spaces. From the correctness of the made choice and thought-out network layout determines the speed of data transmission and the network security.

The Home Area Network (HAN) is a kind of local area network (LAN) that lets facilitate communication and interaction among the electronic and digital devices mounted within a small area of a home. At this, the Home Area Network can be wired or wireless, typically it consists of a broadband Internet connection, which is shared between multiple users through a wired or wireless modem. This sample shows a Home Network Plan to assist when building the internet communications within a home. You may notice that it is a complete home plan with location of furniture. The detailed scheme depicting location of digital devices, the arrangement of gateways, outlets and termination points is allocated separately at the callout. Creating a plan is one of the base steps when implementing a home network. Now, the network visualization is quick and simple when using the Network Layout Floor Plans solution for ConceptDraw PRO.

Do you need to draw a network layout floor plan, network topologies diagram, network topology mapper, or a network communication plan similar to this sample? Usually, the process of planning and designing of network communication plans and other listened types of plans is sufficiently complex. But now, this process is maximally facilitated, you can use a predesigned sample or template from the selection provided through ConceptDraw Store, the predesigned vector objects of network and communication elements and devices offered in quantity at the libraries. The physical topology depicts the placement of different network components, devices and cables, the interconnections between the network nodes and cabling. On this Network Communication Plan is used a cable Cat5e, which is one of the types of cables used to transmit the signals and comprised of four twisted pairs. Usually Cat5e cable is unshielded and is used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet.

This network layout floor plan example visualizes an Ethernet Cable Layout diagram that is a "UGA Technical Network Liaison Handbook" based on the data from the website of the University of Georgia. Ethernet is a common family of computer networking technologies of organization the local area network (LAN), the packet transfer of data for computer network and larger networks. The Ethernet standards determine the wiring and electrical signals at the physical level. Ethernet uses the concept of shared broadcast, each computer sends the data to this broadcast and indicates to whom they are addressed. The data can reach all computers on the network, but are handled only one to whom they are intended, another computers ignore the data of others. Currently the Ethernet standard almost always involves connection through a switch, in this case the data reach only to the addressee, which greatly increases the speed of work and network security.

The Ethernet physical layer, which is a component of Ethernet family of computer network standards, was developed over a long time period and includes several physical media interfaces and magnitudes of speed. The speed range depends from the type of cable (this can be bulky coaxial cable, the twisted pair or optical fiber cable) and takes the values from 1 Mbit/s to 100 Gbit/s. At this, the network protocol stack software works almost similarly on all physical layers. This sample represents in details a Network Floor Plan Layout and shows a plan of an Ethernet computer network that will be constructed using a category 5 cable (Cat 5e). Cat 5e is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals. It is convenient to use callouts to convey the additional information for a viewer of this plan and it is a good idea to visually indicate the cable type on a callout.

A Local Area Network (LAN) is a network that covers some small area like a room, office, bank, business center, or any other premises or building. Today, the most commonly used LAN is Ethernet, which lets to transmit the data over a LAN with a speed of a gigabit per second, uses the bus or star topology and is based on the technology of multiple access with a carrier sense and collision detection (CSMA/CD). The Ethernet is a standard that uses the principle of random access to the shared environment, which can be a coaxial cable, twisted pair, fiber optic cable, and radio waves. This sample is the Ethernet LAN Layout on the typical office floor plan. There are represented all office departments on this diagram, the arrangement of computer equipment, network devices and cabling at the office premises. Each department's room is colored with its own color for more visuality.

How to build a network within the office premise? It is necessary to start from designing the plan or sketch of the projected network. The main task when developing such project is to choose the best path for mounting the cables from the workplaces and for the placement the switch. A huge role plays the type of premise, its layout, material and thickness of walls, so in each particular case it is necessary to make an individual plan. Furthermore, the beforehand thoughtful plan helps to avoid the errors at the stage of purchase the network equipment and materials, as well as further laying of cables and installation of network equipment. This sample shows detailed network layout plan for one floor at the office building with many rooms. If your office building is a multifloor, the ConceptDraw PRO software lets design the similar plans for all floors of your building in a few minutes.
