Tree Network Topology Diagram
Tree Network Topology Diagram
Computer network diagrams, including all of the network topology diagrams, can be created with the help of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and they all can be made only within a couple of hours or even minutes using our solutions. There are eight basic topologies, which are: “Point-to-point”, “Bus”, “Star”, “Ring or circular”, “Mesh”, “Tree”, “Hybrid” and “Daisy chain”. So you can always make Point-to-point network topology diagram, Bus network topology diagram, Star network topology diagram, Ring network topology diagram, Mesh network topology diagram, Tree network topology diagram, Hybrid network topology diagram and Daisy chain network topology diagram. With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application you will find it much simpler to create any of those, mentioned above diagrams.
“Bus” topology includes the possibility of making the “Linear bus” topology and the “Distributed bus” topology diagrams. The “Point-to-point” topology diagram can be made using a dedicated link between its two endpoints. “Mesh” network diagram describes the network, where the nodes relay data for the network itself. All of the nodes in this “mesh” topology diagram cooperate with each other in the process of the data distribution within the network. “Mesh” network topology can be used for both wireless and wired networks. The “ring” topology is quite similar to the “bus” one. In this topology data travels around the ring, but in only one direction. When one of the nodes sends data to another node, then this data passes through each of the intermediate nodes on the ring until it reaches the planned destination. Then, the intermediate nodes transmit this data to keep the signal strong and so each of the nodes is a peer, and there is no hierarchical relationship of clients in the “ring” topology. “Hybrid” network topologies are those, which combine a few different types of topologies. For instance, it can be the “ring” topology and the “mesh” topology, it can be also a “mesh” one and “bus” one, “star” network topology combined with the “mesh” one, etc.
A “tree” network, if it is connected to another “tree” network, will still be a “tree” one. This type of network topologies has a hierarchy of nodes and its highest level has a single (also known as a “root”) node, which is connected with another single or multiple node or nodes. There is the lower level nodes in “tree” computer network topology, which is also connected to a single node or multiple nodes in the next level under the previous, the higher one. “Tree” computer networks have not so many levels, but each of the nodes in this “tree” network has definite nodes, which are connected to it at the next, which is a lower, level in this network topology hierarchy. Shortly to say, the “tree” computer network topology is a combination of both “Star” and “Bus” computer network topologies.
A “hybrid” network topology can be used for illustrating the two different basic network topologies, which are connected to each other. There is another topology called “fully connected computer network topology”. It can be also known as a “full mesh computer network topology” and it is one of the existing computer network topologies, where there is a direct link between all pairs of the nodes within this topology. In this “fully connected computer network topology” with “n”-nodes there are n(n-1)/2 direct links. The computer networks, which are designed with this type of the computer network topology called “a full mesh computer network topology”, are usually very expensive to have. Although they provide a good reliability as there are many paths for data and all of them are provided by the many redundant links, which are all between the nodes. This “fully connected computer network topology” or, as it is also known, a “full mesh computer network topology” can be seen in many of the military applications.

"definition: Tree topology is a combination of Bus and Star topology.
An example of this network could be cable TV technology. Other examples are in dynamic tree based wireless networks for military, mining and otherwise mobile applications. The Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey CA, demonstrated such tree based wireless networks for border security. In a pilot system, aerial cameras kept aloft by balloons relayed real time high resolution video to ground personnel via a dynamic self healing tree based network."

TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.

To connect two or more network devices are used the network cables. There are more different types of the network cables: Coaxial cable, Optical fiber cable, Twisted Pair, Ethernet crossover cable, Power lines and others. They are used depending of the network topology, size, protocol.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical.
This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.

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.

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.

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts.
Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools.
This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.
