# Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network Examples

A Wide area network (WAN) is a telecommunication network that is used for connecting computers and covers a wide geographical area. WANs often contain a few smaller networks (LANs, MANs, etc.). The packet switching and circuit switching technologies are effectively used in WANs.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Wide area network topology.

## Hybrid Network Topology

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 is example of the Hybrid network topology.
Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network. There are many types of the network topologies: bus, star, ring, mesh topology, but the most popular is the hybrid topology.

## Physical network. 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.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Physical star network.

## Point to Point Network Topology

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 Point-to-point network topology.
Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network.
Point-to-point network topology is a simple topology that displays the network of exactly two hosts (computers, servers, switches or routers) connected with a cable. Point-to-point topology is widely used in the computer networking and computer architecture.

## Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network Examples

"Logical topology, or signal topology, is the arrangement of devices on a computer network and how they communicate with one another. How devices are connected to the network through the actual cables that transmit data, or the physical structure of the network, is called the physical topology. Physical topology defines how the systems are physically connected. It represents the physical layout of the devices on the network. The logical topology defines how the systems communicate across the physical topologies.
Logical topologies are bound to network protocols and describe how data is moved across the network. ...
EXAMPLE : twisted pair Ethernet is a logical bus topology in a physical star topology layout. while IBM's token ring is a logical ring topology, it is physically set up in star topology." [Logical topology. Wikipedia]
This Cisco logical computer network diagram example was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Cisco Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

## Daisy Chain Network Topology

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.
A Daisy Chain is the simple computer network. It is the easiest way to add more Ethernet devices into the network. In the Daisy Chain network one computer is connected to the next without any intervening devices, thus the message is sent from one computer to the next and then to the next and so on. A Daisy Chain can be linear or ring

## Netflow architecture. Computer and Network Examples

Netflow is a network protocol used for accounting the IP network traffic. It was developed by Cisco Systems. Now it is actually the industrial standard, it is supported by many devices. There are several versions of the protocol, but the most common are the versions 5 and 9.
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Netflow architecture.

## Design Element: Basic Network for Network Diagrams

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is perfect for software designers and software developers who need to draw Basic Network Diagrams.

## Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples

Metropolitan Area Network combines local networks located within a city, and is based on high data rate compounds, implemented on the basis of fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. Now, with the increasing number of network communities, wireless local area networks based on 802.11b standard are combined into a wireless metropolitan area network consisting of affordable antenna systems and consumer-grade wireless equipment using 802.11a and 802.11b standards.
