# Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

A local area network (LAN) is a devices network that connect with each other in the scope of a home, school, laboratory, or office. Usually, a LAN comprise computers and peripheral devices linked to a local domain server. All network appliances can use a shared printers or disk storage. A local area network serve for many hundreds of users. Typically, LAN includes many wires and cables that demand a previously designed network diagram. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the LANs physical structure and arrangement.
ConceptDraw - Perfect Network Diagramming Software with examples of LAN Diagrams. ConceptDraw Network Diagram is ideal for network engineers and network designers who need to draw Local Area Network diagrams.

## Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols

The Cisco Network Diagrams solution uses Cisco network symbols and Cisco icons to visualize computer networks. Cisco Network Topology is the arrangement of the Cisco symbols that display scheme of computer network.
Any Cisco equipment on the network are named like node. Network diagram topology commonly designed within connected nodes. Cisco icons are worldwide acknowledged and mainly established as standard icons for network diagrams. You may use them loosely, but you may not rework them.
The Cisco Network Diagram shows how signals act on the networked devices, or how data routes on the network from one device to the other. There are number of physical network typologies that engineers use while constructing computer networks.

## Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

The vector stencils library "Cisco WAN" contains 15 symbols of wide area network (WAN) devices and equipment for drawing Cisco WAN diagrams.
"A wide area network (WAN) is a network that covers a broad area (i.e., any telecommunications network that links across metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries) using leased telecommunication lines. Business and government entities utilize WANs to relay data among employees, clients, buyers, and suppliers from various geographical locations. ...
Related terms for other types of networks are personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs), campus area networks (CANs), or metropolitan area networks (MANs) which are usually limited to a room, building, campus or specific metropolitan area (e.g., a city) respectively.
... it may be best to view WANs as computer networking technologies used to transmit data over long distances, and between different LANs, MANs and other localised computer networking architectures. ...
WANs are often built using leased lines. At each end of the leased line, a router connects the LAN on one side with a second router within the LAN on the other. Leased lines can be very expensive. Instead of using leased lines, WANs can also be built using less costly circuit switching or packet switching methods. Network protocols including TCP/ IP deliver transport and addressing functions. Protocols including Packet over SONET/ SDH, MPLS, ATM and Frame relay are often used by service providers to deliver the links that are used in WANs." [Wide area network. Wikipedia]

## Hybrid Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO 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.

## Architecture Diagrams

The Architecture Diagrams are the type of diagrams which help to system designers, system developers, and application developers to visualize the overall high-level structure of the system or application and depict the interactions between software systems, users, external systems, data sources, and services. The ConceptDraw PRO Architecture Diagrams Software provides the unique Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park with wide set of powerful tools for fast and easy creating various types of Architecture diagrams.

## Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

The vector stencils library "Cisco WAN" contains 15 symbols of wide area network (WAN) devices and equipment: CSU/ DSU (Channel Service Unit/ Data Service Unit), WAN, MUX (multiplexer), PBX switch, Hub, NAT (network address translation), distributed and local directors, PBX (private branch exchange), Network clouds, DPT (dynamic packet transport).
Create the computer network topology diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software with the design elements library "Cisco WAN".
"A wide area network (WAN) is a network that covers a broad area (i.e., any telecommunications network that links across metropolitan, regional, or national boundaries) using private or public network transports. Business and government entities utilize WANs to relay data among employees, clients, buyers, and suppliers from various geographical locations. In essence, this mode of telecommunication allows a business to effectively carry out its daily function regardless of location. The Internet can be considered a WAN as well, and is used by businesses, governments, organizations, and individuals for almost any purpose imaginable.
Related terms for other types of networks are personal area networks (PANs), local area networks (LANs), campus area networks (CANs), or metropolitan area networks (MANs) which are usually limited to a room, building, campus or specific metropolitan area (e.g., a city) respectively."
