Design Element: Computer and Network
for Network Diagrams
Network computer devices that originate, route and terminate the data are called network nodes. Nodes can include hosts such as personal computers, phones, servers as well as networking hardware. Two such devices can be said to be networked together when one device is able to exchange information with the other device, whether or not they have a direct connection to each other.
Computer networks differ in the transmission medium used to carry their signals, the communications protocols to organize network traffic, the network's size, topology and organizational intent.
Network diagrams visualize schematically computer networks topology, equipment nodes and different types of their logical and physical connections.
ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own Network Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams vector stencils library with 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.
Example 1. Design Elements — Computer and Network (Mac OS X, Windows) for Network Diagrams.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software that allows quick and easy draw the network diagrams.
Example 1. Computer Network Diagrams solution and examples
Computer and Network Diagrams library of vector stencils from ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution provides the 56 objects of design element for drawing the computer network diagrams.
Use the Computer and Network Diagrams library to create your own computer network diagrams that show LAN and WAN topology, equipment nodes and their logical and physical connections.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Studying informatics demands knowledge in the area of computer networks as well. The most famous world network, Internet, is an example of wide area network (WAN) topology that connects devices spread on any distance. Unlike other smaller networks that are limited to a building or to a campus, WAN is almost limitless.
This WAN (wide area network) diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. It shows a telecommunication network that covers a large geographical area connecting several settlements. This type of networks is commonly used by business and government institutions. Using the WANs enables them quickly communicate information between remote geographical points. To reproduce this network diagram, you will need the means, provided by ConceptDraw Computer and Network Diagrams solution.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network that allows the private networks at a remote location securely connect to the public Internet and provide access only to the intended recipients for transmitting data. VPN is built by creating the virtual point-to-point connection using the dedicated connections, traffic encryption or virtual tunneling protocols.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual Private Network (VPN) diagram.

All computer networks differ by various params, and their size is one of them. As global area networks are the biggest, personal area (PAN) networks are the smallest. Personal computers, smartphones and other devices that have possibility to connect to Internet form a personal network.
This diagram was created using ConceptDraw Computer Network Diagrams to represent a typical components of Personal area network. A personal area network (PAN) is the connection of IT devices around an individual person. This sample of personal area network involves a notebook, a personal digital assistant (PDA), and a portable printer. Commonly a PAN contains such wireless devices as mouse, keyboard, smartphone and tablet. A wireless connection is typical for a PAN.

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.
This sample shows the Hierarchical network topology.
A Hierarchical network topology interconnects multiple groups that are located on the separate layers to form a larger network. Each layer concentrates on the specified functions, this allows to choose the right equipment for the layer.

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a high-speed networking standard intended for supporting the voice and data communications.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software that provides the Computer and Networks solution with wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils and examples to help you design the ATM Networks quick and easy.

Any wireless network is some computer network that can use any needed wireless data connections that can be placed between the network nodes. Any wireless networking is known to be one of the methods by which both telecommunications networks and business installations, same as the homes avoid the process of introducing the cables into some building.
Drawing some wireless computer network as it may be a challenge, especially for those who do not have as much experience of doing it. That is why the CS Odessa team has developed the Wireless Networks solution so it can be used for simplifying all the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users work on the needed diagrams.
