Hybrid Network Topology

Hybrid Network Topology

A network topology is the topological structure or the arrangement of different elements of computer network. There are several basic types of network topologies, such as star, ring, bus, mesh. But the most popular is a combination of two or more diverse basic network topologies, which is known as hybrid network topology. The examples of hybrid topology are: star-bus, star-ring topologies, etc. Each resulting hybrid topology has its own features, advantages and limitations of its components. Hybrid network topologies are more flexible, reliable, and have increased fault tolerance, the faults in them can be easily diagnosed and corrected, new nodes can be easily added. But at the same time hybrid topologies often are sufficiently expensive and difficult for managing. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with the tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Networks area is perfect for schematic description various types of computer network topologies and easy designing Hybrid network topology diagrams.

Cisco Network Design. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils, symbols and design elements

Cisco is the largest company, which specializes in the field of high technologies, develops and sells network equipment mainly for the large organizations and telecommunication companies. Cisco produces wide variety of devices and equipment, such as routers, switches, gateways, servers, network security devices (firewalls, VPN, IDs, etc.), ATM switches, cable modems and DSL equipment, access points Wi-Fi, products for IP telephony, etc. The first commercially successful multi-protocol router, which enabled for previously incompatible computers to communicate between themselves, is also developed by Cisco company. Cisco is a generally accepted standard, which uses globally recognized Cisco icons for all produced Cisco equipment. ConceptDraw PRO software extended with Cisco Network Diagrams solution from Computer and Network area contains a lot of predesigned Cisco network design elements for professional drawing Cisco network diagrams, visualization computer network topologies, equipment connections and arrangement.

Design Element: Computer and Network for Network Diagrams

There are many types of computer networks, they differ in size, topology, organizational intents, in transmission medium used to carry the signals, in communication protocols to organize network traffic, and in many other parameters. Computer Network Diagrams help to visualize schematically computer networks and computer network topologies, equipment nodes, as well as different types of their logical and physical connections. ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect network diagramming software intended for network designers and software developers who need to draw different types of Computer Network Diagrams. Computer Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides for ConceptDraw PRO users a lot of computer network design elements helpful for visualization varied ideas regarding to design and implementation of computer and telecommunication networks, LAN, MAN and WAN architectures, physical and logical topologies, wiring schematics and cabling layout plans.

Virtual networks. Computer and Network Examples

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 PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual network. Read more
