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 draw Local Area Network Diagram

ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own Local Area Network Diagrams. You can use the appropriate templates and stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams objects library.

  • Computer Network library, contains 29 icon symbols of devices and equipment. Use these shapes for drawing LAN, MAN and WAN diagrams at physical and logical levels, network architecture, topology, wiring and layout schematic and plans.
  • Computer peripheral devices library, contains 20 icon symbols of computer peripheral devices. Use these equipment shapes for drawing network diagrams.
  • Computers and network isometric library, contains 56 3D icon symbols of computer and network devices. Use these equipment shapes for drawing diagrams of computer and telecommunication networks, LAN, MAN and WAN architecture, physical and logical topology, wiring schematic and cabling layout plans.
  • External digital devices library, contains 15 icon symbols. Use these equipment shapes for drawing computer network diagrams.
  • Internet symbols library, contains 11 icons of equipment symbols. Use these Web shapes for drawing computer network diagrams.

EIGHT RELATED HOW TO's:

Electrical Symbols — Qualifying →

A qualifying symbol is graphics or text added to the basic outline of a device’s logic symbol to describe the physical or logical characteristics of the device. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Qualifying *

Communication Network Topology →

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. A communication network topology is defined by the evaluating costs of the states. Each state represents the possible distribution of the hubs and remote nodes to nodes of the communication network.Communication Network Topology *

Basketball Court Dimensions →

Outdoor activities are a very important part of leisure. Although standard basketball court dimensions are strict, you can do something to set a court even in your yard. With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can develop a plan to see how a basketball court is going to fit in your yard. The favorite method of basketball coaches is visualization. For learning, for disassembly of played matches or for planning the strategy of the coming games - they always use a picture of basketball courts. Such schematically picture should have scale and should depict precisely standard equipment and dimensions of the basketball court. The Basketball solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM was developed as a tool for drawing different basketball schemes and illustrations.Basketball Court Dimensions
