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.

Building Drawing. Design Element: Piping Plan →

A technical drawing of a building is called an architectural drawing. According to a set of conventions, a building drawing includes a number of views, as well as unit measurements, scales, sheet sizes, cross referencing and annotation. Computer progress had a major impact of the methods of architectural drawing, making manual drawing almost obsolete. Digital drawing software, such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM , offers a number of tools for each design element: piping plan, floor plan, etc. Any building should have its plumbing and piping plans for every room, that has a water supply. Plans are applied to indicate arrangement of piping system in the building. This diagram presents a suite of standard piping icons for making building plans that include plumbing and piping layout. This diagram was designed using ConceptDraw solution for Piping and Plumbing planning. Using symbols is valuable for making a valid piping plan. Because any professional will properly interpreted such plan as a piece of technical documentation of a construction project.Building Drawing. Design Element: Piping Plan *
