Network Gateway Router
Gateway Router in Network Diagrams
In Computer Networks exists a Gateway Router that serves as an access point to another network. In computing configurations, a gateway often provides a physical device which both connects local hardware to the Internet. Such devices include various routers. ConceptDraw has numerous pre-designed network gateway routers for all possible types of networks:
- Cisco Networks
- Apple Networks
- IVR Networks
- GPRS Networks
Computer and Networks solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park provides libraries of vector stencils for network diagram elements as gateway routers, firewalls, servers, WAN and LAN routers and switches, computers, network peripherals, etc.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Computer and networks solution to draw different types of network diagrams: physical layout and topology, LAN and WAN, Cisco, Apple, Wi-Fi wireless and Ethernet wired networks, etc.

What Is a Wireless Network? Wireless network refers to any type of computer network that uses wireless (usually, but not always radio waves) for network connections. Wireless computer network diagrams help system administrators and network engineers to find out amount and type of equipment needed for each office WLAN.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Wireless Networks Solution gives the ability to its users to create professional looking WLAN schemes and diagrams quick and easy.
When talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems.
The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.

In general, you can use any icons to represent network equipment on a diagram. However, there are some icons, for instance, Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols, that are recognizable worldwide. Using those icons you can create Cisco network topology diagrams in minutes and share them anywhere.
The icons depicting Cisco network equipment are recognized and generally applied as standard images for designing network diagrams. They are free to used , but can not be reworked. Cisco network diagrams are created to depict how signals processed on the network equipment and end-user computers and how data transfer through LAN or WLAN between nodes. The vector graphic library of ConceptDraw CISCO Network Diagrams solution includes about 90 icons of Cisco network equipment for designing computer network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

A complete (fully connected) topology is a network topology in which there is a direct link between all pairs of nodes. In a fully connected network with n nodes, there are n(n-1)/2 direct links. Networks designed with this topology are usually very expensive to set up, but provide a high degree of reliability due to the multiple paths for data that are provided by the large number of redundant links between nodes.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Class Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample describes the use of the classes, the generalization associations between them, the multiplicity of associations and constraints. Provided UML diagram is one of the examples set that are part of Rapid UML solution.
