Personal area (PAN) networks. Computer and Network Examples
A personal area network — PAN is a personal devices network equipped at a limited area. PAN ordinary has such mobile devices: cell phone, tablet, laptop. That type of network could also be wirelessly connected to Internet.
The personal area network concept originates at M.I.T.'s Media Lab thanks to Thomas Zimmerman research. Zimmerman's article the advantage of this technology explains.
A personal area network handles the interconnection of IT devices at the surrounding of a single user. Generally, PAN contains from following such appliances: cordless mice and keyboards, cordless phone, Bluetooth.
A personal area network pros and cons:
- PAN is expedient, lucrative and handy.
- Sometimes has a bad connection to other networks at the same radio bands.
- Bluetooth networks have slow data transfer speed, but comparatively safe.
- Bluetooth has distance limits.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software. It provides the Computer and Networks Area with many Solutions that contain the wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils and examples to help you design the professional looking Personal area networks (PANs) of any complexity quick and easy.
Example 1. Personal area (PAN) network.
Once you go to the Solutions section on this site, you will see our examples and templates of personal area network which can be very useful in terms of making your own diagram and to have the final version of it looking professional.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Personal area network.
Example 2. Computer and Network Diagrams Solution
The network diagrams designed with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

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.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses cameras and monitors to carry out video surveillance. Unlike broadcast television this system has only local signal. It is a feature of almost every video camera, yet CCTV is mainly a system for visual control of certain areas such as banks, airports, supermarkets, and other places for security reasons.
Developing and installing CCTV system is a time-consuming process. It also requires certain knowledge and skills. ConceptDraw is a solution of setting video cameras rationally. You can achieve two aims at once: CCTV Design Tool saves your time and your money and helps you make professional video surveillance system.

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.
