Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples
A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a large computer network on the large geographical area that include several buildings or even the entire city (metropolis). The geographical area of the MAN is larger than LAN, but smaller than WAN. MAN includes many communicating devices and provides the Internet connectivity for the LANs in the metropolitan area.
MAN is used to combine into a network group located in different buildings into a single network. The diameter of such a network can range from 5 to 50 kilometers. As a rule, MAN does not belong to any particular organization, in most cases, a group of users or a provider who takes charge for the service own its connecting elements and other equipment. Level of service is agreed in advance and some warranties are discussed. MAN often acts as a high-speed network to allow sharing regional resources (like a big LAN). It is also often used to provide public available connection to other networks using a WAN connection. There are many ways of classifying networks. The main criterion for classification is considering the administration method. That is, depending on how the network is organized and how it is controlled, it can be attributed to local or distributed, metropolitan or WAN. or her A network administrator manages a network or it’s segment. Administration team activities are logged, and their rights and responsibilities are strictly divided if the network is complex. Computers can be connected using a variety of media access controllers: a twisted pair, optical conductors (optical cables) and via radio (wireless technology). Wired optical connections are usually established via Ethernet, wireless - through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS and other protocols. Private LAN may be linked to other local area networks through gateways, as well as being part of a global computer network (eg, the Internet), or have a connection to it.

Network infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation.
Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety.
Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on

Beginning from the 19th century, people tried to tame electricity. Nowadays, electrical engineering covers a wide range of applications starting from providing illumination in our homes to developing space technologies. Considering the fact that every project needs documentation, engineers use electrical diagram software to develop these projects. Standard electrical symbols of electrical components are recognizable all around the world.
This illustration represents the 26 libraries that are supplied by the ConceptDraw Electrical Engineering solution. The Electric Engineering libraries contains about a thousand objects enabling you to draw various charts depicting electrical connections and circuits, along with schemes of different equipment and devices. The electric engineering libraries delivered with ConceptDraw solution meet the standards adopted in the image to electrical circuits. So they can be used by professionals along with amateurs in electrical engineering.

There are several basic topologies including bus, star, point-to-point, ring and a hybrid. Two computers can form a fully connected network topology, and as the number of network nodes increases, the network diagram gets more complicated. This type of topology is also called a full mesh.
This is a visual example of a computer network built using a mesh topology. This diagram presents the schematic structure of the full mesh network topology. A common mesh network topology means that each network device is connected with several points in the network, so if the one node of the network goes down, it does not cause an issue with an operability of the entire computer network. In a full mesh network topology, every computer or device in the network is interconnected with each of the other devices in the network.
