Physical LAN and WAN diagram - Template

"At different scales diagrams may represent various levels of network granularity. At the LAN level, individual nodes may represent individual physical devices, such as hubs or file servers, while at the WAN level, individual nodes may represent entire cities. In addition, when the scope of a diagram crosses the common LAN/MAN/WAN boundaries, representative hypothetical devices may be depicted instead of showing all actually existing nodes. For example, if a network appliance is intended to be connected through the Internet to many end-user mobile devices, only a single such device may be depicted for the purposes of showing the general relationship between the appliance and any such device." [Computer network diagram. Wikipedia]

Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a great computer network located on the large geographical area or region. It is a network bigger than Local Area Network (LAN), but territorially smaller than Wide Area Network (WAN), its diameter usually ranges from 5 to 50 kilometers. MAN usually includes several buildings or even the whole city (metropolis). It is based on high data rate compounds using the fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. MAN includes a lot of communicating devices, for its construction are used multiple routers, switches and hubs. MAN can combine together several Local Area Networks or Campus Area Networks located in different buildings within a city and provides the Internet connectivity for them. Solutions included to Computer and Networks Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park are the real godsend for those who want design Computer Network Diagrams, and among others the Metropolitan Area Network Diagrams. They offer the libraries with ready-to-use vector design elements, professional-looking examples, samples and templates. Read more

Computer Network. Computer and Network Examples

A Computer Network is a telecommunication network containing the set of nodes (computer network devices, such as computers, phones, servers) and allows them exchange the data using the network links. There are many kinds of computer networks. The primary difference is their size, according to the scale they can be classified as: Local area network (LAN), Metropolitan area network (MAN), Global Area Network (GAN), Wide area network (WAN), Storage area network (SAN), Campus area network (CAN), Personal area network (PAN). Computer networks also differ by connection method according to the used hardware technology (Ethernet, Wireless LAN, Optical fiber, HomePNA, Power line communication), by functional relationships that exist between network elements (Client-server, Active Networking, Peer-to-peer), by network topology (Tree computer network, Bus network, Star network, Ring network, Mesh network, etc.). Solutions of Computer and Networks Area from ConceptDraw Solution Park contain powerful drawing tools for easy designing diagrams for any Computer Network from listed diversity. Read more

Network Topologies

Network topology is a topological structure of computer network, which can be physical or logical. The physical topology depicts location of different computer network elements such as computers, cables and other devices. The logical topology visually displays network dataflows from one device to another. Sometimes network logical and physical topologies can be the same. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is powerful for drawing network maps and network topologies diagrams of any kinds and complexity thanks to the Computer Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area. ConceptDraw STORE proposes collection of network icons libraries and a lot of Network Topology Diagram examples, samples and templates which were created at ConceptDraw PRO software specially for Computer Network Diagrams solution. There are six basic types of the network topologies: Bus, Star, Ring, Mesh, Tree, Fully Connected. You can fast and easy design professional-looking diagram for each of them using the ConceptDraw PRO tools. There are plenty of web Visio-like diagramming software available. Web based diagrams software can be powerful, but sometimes it is essential to have desktop software. One of the most advanced diagrams tools like Visio for Mac OS is ConceptDraw PRO app. Read more

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.

The vector stencils library "Cisco LAN" contains 23 symbols of local area network (LAN) devices and equipment for drawing Cisco LAN topology diagrams.
"Network topology describes the layout of interconnections between devices and network segments. At the Data Link Layer and Physical Layer, a wide variety of LAN topologies have been used, including ring, bus, mesh and star, but the most common LAN topology in use today is switched Ethernet. At the higher layers, the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) has become the standard, replacing NetBEUI, IPX/SPX, AppleTalk and others.
Simple LANs generally consist of one or more switches. A switch can be connected to a router, cable modem, or ADSL modem for Internet access. Complex LANs are characterized by their use of redundant links with switches using the spanning tree protocol to prevent loops, their ability to manage differing traffic types via quality of service (QoS), and to segregate traffic with VLANs. A LAN can include a wide variety of network devices such as switches, firewalls, routers, load balancers, and sensors.
LANs can maintain connections with other LANs via leased lines, leased services, or the Internet using virtual private network technologies. Depending on how the connections are established and secured in a LAN, and the distance involved, a LAN may also be classified as a metropolitan area network (MAN) or a wide area network (WAN)." [Local area network. Wikipedia]
The symbols example "Cisco LAN - Vector stencils library" 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.
