Diagram of a Basic Computer Network. Computer Network Diagram Example
What is a computer network? This is a set of devices and systems that are connected to each other (logically or physically) and communicate with each other. This could include servers, computers, phones, routers, and so on. The size of this network can reach the size of the Internet, and can consist of only two devices connected by a cable.
What do we use computer network for?
1) Applications: using applications, we send different data between devices, open access to shared resources. It can be both console applications and applications with a graphical interface.
2) Network resources: These are network printers, network cameras.
3) Storage: Using a server or a workstation connected to the network, a storage is created that is accessible to others. Many people upload their files, videos, pictures there and share them with other users.
4) Backup: Often, in large companies, they use a central server, where all computers copy important files for backup. This is necessary for subsequent data recovery if the original is deleted or damaged.
5) VoIP: IP telephony, working on IP protocol.

The entity–relationship (ER) model is a data model that lets graphically represent the information system and depict the relationships between people, objects, concepts, places, and events within a given system. It is also convenient to use the ER Diagram for Cloud computing representation and description the Cloud computing architecture, design them with pleasure using the extensive tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

A pie chart is a circular diagram showing a set of data divided into proportional slices. There are several variations of this chart such as donut chart, exploded pie chart, multi-level pie charts. Although it is not very informative when a ring chart or circle chart has many sections, so choosing a low number of data points is quite important for a useful pie chart.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with Pie Charts solution helps to create pie and donut charts for effective displaying proportions in statistics, business and mass media for composition comparison, i.e. for visualization of part percentage inside one total.

A Virtual network is a computer network that consists of virtual network links, i.e. between the computing devices there isn't a physical connection.
Well known forms of network virtualization are virtual networks based on the virtual devices (for example the network based on the virtual devices inside a hypervisor), protocol-based virtual networks (VLAN, VPN, VPLS, Virtual Wireless network, etc.) and their combinations.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual network.

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.
