Computer and Network Examples
A Computer Network is a telecommunication network that allows the networked computing devices to exchange the data using the network links. The most known computer network is the Internet.
The network links or connections between the nodes are set up using the cable media or wireless media. The nodes are the network computer devices, such as the computers, phones, servers.
There are many different types of the computer networks: Personal area network (PAN), Local area network (LAN), Metropolitan area network (MAN), Campus area network (CAN), Storage area network (SAN), Global Area Network (GAN) and Wide area network (WAN).
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful computer network diagramming and vector drawing software. It provides the Computer and Networks Area for quick, easy and effective drawing the different types of computer network diagrams.
Solutions of the Computer and Networks Area contain many professional looking examples that you can customize for your needs to draw your own computer networks in a few minutes. You can also use the great number of ready-to-use predesigned vector objects from the libraries of the Computer and Networks Area.
Example 1. Computer network.
This computer network example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The Computer Network Diagrams created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

A Home Area Networks (HAN) is a type of local area network that is used in an individual home. The home computers can be connected together by twisted pair or by a wireless network. HAN facilitates the communication and interoperability among digital devices at the home, allows to easier access to the entertainments and increase the productivity, organize the home security.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the home network diagram.

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams.
This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.

Every corporate network is unique, though there are guidelines and best practices in developing networks. As it is quite difficult to implement a pure topology within a company, using a hybrid network topology is considered a better solution. As a rule, such network assembles advantages and features of source topologies.
This diagram is an example of the Hybrid network. This type of network topology means a conjunction of other network topologies. Such as star-bus, ring-mesh topologies, etc. It should be obviously diverse networks. The final computer network inherits both advantages and disadvantages of its ingredients. Using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution including vector graphic libraries and templates one can develop professional custom network diagrams of any topology and complexity.

Creating a detailed network plan can cause a lot of headache to an unexperienced user. And it is worth mentioning that ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a decent tool for creating a network diagram, a tool that is easy-to-use. To get an accurate diagram use the vector shapes from the special libraries that represent workstations, network appliances, wiring systems and connect them with smart-connectors, just as simple as that.
This communication network diagram displays the way different components of a computer network communicate with each other. When representing network information, such as depicting all the equipment in a large network, it is helpful to make visual representation. Network diagram provides an easy way to show the way the connections between an equipment in a large network. This diagram of a communication network depicts a network composed of three sub-networks. It uses a network equipment symbols to represent the different devices that make up a network communication including routers, Ethernet devices and end-point equipment.

The AWS diagrams are convenient way for explaining the work of Amazon Web Services. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software offers the AWS Architecture Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area for fast and easy creating the AWS diagrams of any complexity.
In general, you can use any icons to represent network equipment on a diagram. However, there are some icons, for instance, Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols, that are recognizable worldwide. Using those icons you can create Cisco network topology diagrams in minutes and share them anywhere.
The icons depicting Cisco network equipment are recognized and generally applied as standard images for designing network diagrams. They are free to used , but can not be reworked. Cisco network diagrams are created to depict how signals processed on the network equipment and end-user computers and how data transfer through LAN or WLAN between nodes. The vector graphic library of ConceptDraw CISCO Network Diagrams solution includes about 90 icons of Cisco network equipment for designing computer network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
