Example 3: Hybrid Satellite and Common Carrier Network Diagram

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Telecommunication Networks Library from the Telecommunication Network Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

A communications satellite, or 'comsat', is an artificial satellite that is sent to space for the purpose of telecommunications. One of the most important applications of communication satellites is telephone communication with ships and planes. The satellites are also used for TV and radio broadcasting.

Telecommunication Network Diagrams

The ability to transmit data electronically has revolutionized how we make contact with each other. It's over 150 years since the Morse telegraph system was introduced, and its popularity was instantaneous — no longer would individuals have to wait days for their hand written note to be transferred across country by horseback or train; messages could be received a moment after they were sent, and responded to in the same fashion.

In recent times, global communication needs have surged and diversified, evolving with technology to accommodate business or social interactions on an international scale. A whole host of devices have come to replace the simple Morse transmitter, allowing information to be sent through radio waves, along cables, or by radar. Some networks can use combinations of all these and more, to a point where there are very few places in the world unreachable by means of telecommunication.

On a smaller scale, a telecommunication network can simply represent a roomful of computers, that are directly linked to one another. It is also how you would describe a telephone exchange, that connects calls between landlines, switching the direction of data depending on the number you dial. Government and military agencies often require specialized networks — in the case of the emergency services, a system called trunked radio is used, whereby many users can access a two-way radio system using a relatively low amount of frequencies. Aviation industries use ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System), a system that utilizes airbound radio or satellite, to communicate between aircraft and ground control.

With the possibility of such varied and wide-ranging networks, it's considered best practice to plan physical and logical system topology in a visual fashion, through the use of various forms of diagrams.

Physical topology diagrams are concerned with the actual real-life devices and components of a network, their locations relative to each other, and the cabling system that connects them. In contrast, a logical topology diagram describes the flow of data around a network — how system nodes communicate, what network protocols are in place, and how this affects data transmission. Diagrams like these can be very specific, focusing on a small aspect or area of a larger telecommunications system. When combining the two, and taking a wider look at a system, the image scan be described as a network architecture diagram.

As well as acting as a simple planning tool for system engineers — a way of deciding if a certain network arrangement is feasible — telecommunication diagrams aid in all aspects of network management. They can be used for security purposes, to identify weak points in a system, and visualize which users have access to certain devices or data files. Software and hardware engineers can envisage systems that allow for the best access to centralized data and programs, and ensure maximum efficiency from each device due to it's placement within the network. As a simple means of sharing information, diagrams are a great way of reducing large-scale, global networks onto a single page, using icons to represent radio waves, mobile transmissions, or satellite links.

ConceptDraw PRO, a industry-leading diagramming software from the team at CS Odessa, is an example of the kind of drawing platform needed to create effective, informative telecommunication system plans. With their free solution, Telecommunication Network Diagrams, users are presented with a comprehensive resource to supplement ConceptDraw PRO's powerful functionality.

Inside the solution are vector stencil libraries, containing icons covering all telecommunication system requirements — including specialist graphics dedicated to network items from companies such as Cisco and Trango. Users will also find a selection of templates and libraries to help them kickstart the creative process.

An online resource of help materials and tutorial videos can be found at the ConceptDraw website, while for users who have specific requirements regarding sharing and presentations, there are a selection of formatting and export options available directly from the ConceptDraw PRO software.
