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.
Computer and Networks Area for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides professional looking examples, the libraries with ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils to help you create anyone computer network diagrams quick, easy and effective.

Working as a designer, you might find developing projects exciting and difficult at the same time. It is a challenging task to create a usable interior design that will fulfill all the customer’s requirements. So, in order to aid yourself, you can use special software to create site plans, landscape designs, furniture layouts.
This example of an interior plan introduces an internal area of a small cafe. The floor plan demonstrates interior angle "view from above". It involves many different elements of furniture such as tables , chairs and various cushioned furniture. Also it includes a kitchen fixtures and furniture. Making this plan was managed by the ConceptDraw Cafe and Restaurant Floor Plan solution. The libraries, composing this solution contain about vector graphic 300 objects. It can be use to help interior designers to develop interior design proposals, communicate ideas and concepts that relate to a interior design.

Even if you design a network for yourself, you still might need a network diagram software to do it in a convenient way. Your laptop, or PC, a smartphone and a router form a home area network, which might be very small, but has to fulfill all your requirements. A schematic diagram will help you to arrange all the cables and network devices in a proper way.
This wireless network diagram is made to describe the home-area network system. This diagram shows the typical wireless network organization in a private house or condominium. It consists from computers and gadgets that use wireless connections. The diagram is created using the ConceptDraw Computer Networks Diagrams solution. It is a rather common diagram that features icons depicting Wi-Fi point, router, media gadgets and periphery with connections and routes that show the flow of data.

The reliability is a cornerstone for any corporate computer network. If you want to provide a high fault tolerance, a mesh network topology would be the solution. The main advantage of this network is that every node can work as a commutator, although it’s not easy to set up this kind of network.
A mesh network topology may be full, or partial. Full mesh network means that each node of the network (computer, workstation or other equipment) is connected directly to each of the other nodes. A partial mesh topology means that a part of nodes are connected with a whole network, and the other part of nodes are only connected to those equipment, they exchange the majority of data. This illustration shows schematic diagram of a partial mesh network containing six nodes. Each node is represented as a circles and connections are drawn as straight lines. The connections may be both wired and wireless. This scheme can be used to make the specific logical or physical network diagrams by means the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.

Flow chart is a diagrammatic representation of an algorithm and essential part of planning the system. Flow charts are widely used in technical analysis and programming for easy writing programs and explaining them to others. So, one of the most popular type of flow charts is Technical Flow Chart.
Technical Flow Chart can be drawn by pencil on the paper, but it will be easier to use for designing a special software. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park will be useful for this goal.

This sample shows the Influence Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Basic Diagramming Solution from the Universal Diagramming area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Influence diagram represents the directed acyclic graph with three types of nodes and three types of arcs that connect the nodes. Decision node is drawn as a rectangle, Uncertainty node is drawn as an oval, Value node is drawn as an octagon.
