Computer and Network Examples
Physical network represents the computer network topology that includes the computer devices, location and cable installation. Physical network includes the actual nodes, segments and hosts.
There are two types of physical network topologies: bus and star. In the physical bus all computers must be connected individually to a point on the bus and each peripheral - to the appropriate computer. In the physical star each computer must be connected to a central hub with an individual cable and each peripheral - to the appropriate computer, and there not to be no terminators.
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 Physical networks of any complexity quick and easy.
Example 1. Physical network.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Physical star network.
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).

A Virtual network is a computer network that consists of virtual network links, i.e. between the computing devices there isn't a physical connection.
Well known forms of network virtualization are virtual networks based on the virtual devices (for example the network based on the virtual devices inside a hypervisor), protocol-based virtual networks (VLAN, VPN, VPLS, Virtual Wireless network, etc.) and their combinations.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual network.

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work.
This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.

A Near-me area network (NAN) is a logical communication network. NAN focuses on the communication between wireless devices in the close proximity.
All networks 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 XML).

Planning a computer network can be a challenge for a junior specialist. However, knowing how to draw a computer network diagrams isn’t a rocket science anymore. There are a lot of special software for creating such diagrams with predesigned templates and examples.
The core for Network Fault Tolerance System presented here, is the equipment of Cisco. You can see here the certified Cisco equipment icons. Generally, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries contain more than half of a thousand objects representing the standardized images of Cisco equipment. ConceptDraw solution for network diagramming is a great network diagramming tool for any level skills - from students to network guru.

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.
