Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

A local area network (LAN) is a devices network that connect with each other in the scope of a home, school, laboratory, or office. Usually, a LAN comprise computers and peripheral devices linked to a local domain server. All network appliances can use a shared printers or disk storage. A local area network serve for many hundreds of users. Typically, LAN includes many wires and cables that demand a previously designed network diagram. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the LANs physical structure and arrangement.

The Network Logical Structure Diagram is designed to show the logical organization of a network. Shows the basic network components, network structure, and determines the interaction of all network devices. The diagram displays basic devices and zones: Internet, DMZ, LAN, and group. Clarifies what network equipment is connected, describes the major nodes in the network, gives an understanding of the logical structure of the network as well as the type of interaction within the network.

Local Area Network Diagrams visualize the communication schemes of LAN, and the networks arrangement in houses, offices and buildings. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the LANs physical structure and arrangement.

How To Create CCTV Network Diagram →

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses cameras and monitors to carry out video surveillance. Unlike broadcast television this system has only local signal. It is a feature of almost every video camera, yet CCTV is mainly a system for visual control of certain areas such as banks, airports, supermarkets, and other places for security reasons. Developing and installing CCTV system is a time-consuming process. It also requires certain knowledge and skills. ConceptDraw is a solution of setting video cameras rationally. You can achieve two aims at once: CCTV Design Tool saves your time and your money and helps you make professional video surveillance system.How To Create CCTV Network Diagram *

Hotel Network Topology Diagram →

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network. On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.Hotel Network Topology Diagram *

Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols →

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.Cisco Network Topology. <br>Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols *

Flow chart Example. Warehouse Flowchart →

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.Warehouse Flowchart
