Star Network Topology

Star Network Topology

Star is a basic computer network topology in which all nodes (computers and peripheral devices) of the network are connected to the central hub or switch with a point-to-point connection, forming a physical network segment. Such network segment can function separately or as a part of complex network topology. The switch is a server, the peripherals are the clients. The large workload and functions of network management are entrusted on the central computer, all information exchange goes through it, so it must to be obligatory the most powerful. The star network topology is a simple topology for design and implementation. Its advantages are high performance, flexible administration capabilities, simplicity of adding additional nodes and search of faults, the fact that a failure of one workstation doesn't affect the work of entire network. But the failure of central hub will result the failure of whole network or network segment - it's the main disadvantage. Use the ConceptDraw PRO with Computer and Networks solution to designing Star Network Topology Diagrams fast and easy. Read more

"In computer networking, a wireless access point (AP) is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a wired network using Wi-Fi, or related standards. The AP usually connects to a router (via a wired network) as a standalone device, but it can also be an integral component of the router itself. ...
With the creation of the wireless Access Point (AP), network users are now able to add devices that access the network with few or no cables. An AP normally connects directly to a wired Ethernet connection and the AP then provides wireless connections using radio frequency links for other devices to utilize that wired connection. Most APs support the connection of multiple wireless devices to one wired connection. Modern APs are built to support a standard for sending and receiving data using, these radio frequencies. Those standards, and the frequencies they use are defined by the IEEE. Most APs use IEEE 802.11 standards." [Wireless access point. Wikipedia]

"Long-range Wi-Fi is used for low-cost, unregulated point-to-point computer network connections, as an alternative to other fixed wireless, cellular networks or satellite Internet access.
Wi-Fi networks have a range that's limited by the transmission power, antenna type, the location they're used in, and the environment. A typical wireless router in an indoor point-to-multipoint arrangement using 802.11b or 802.11g and a stock antenna might have a range of 32 metres (105 ft). Outdoor point-to-point arrangements, through use of directional antennas, can be extended with many kilometers between stations." [Long-range Wi-Fi. Wikipedia]

Network Diagram Software (PRO)

Network Diagrams are used to visually represent the network architecture, to illustrate the network structure, how the computers and other elements of the network are connected each other using a variety of network symbols, clipart and connection lines. They are incredibly useful on the stages of projecting computer network, of its construction and exploitation. Professionally designed and accurate Network Diagrams are equally convenient for computer engineers and users. You can construct them by hand on the paper or use special network diagramming software, such as ConceptDraw PRO. Having at disposal the powerful network diagramming tools of Computer Network Diagrams solution included to ConceptDraw Solution Park, you can succeed in drawing various types of Computer Network Diagrams, among them Network Communication Plans, Logical Network Diagrams, Network Topology Diagrams, LAN and WAN Diagrams, Network Floor Plan Layouts, Computer Network System Diagrams, Web-based Network Diagrams, Wireless Network Diagrams, Cisco Network Diagram, and others.

"A wireless local area network (WLAN) links two or more devices using some wireless distribution method (typically spread-spectrum or OFDM radio), and usually providing a connection through an access point to the wider Internet. This gives users the ability to move around within a local coverage area and still be connected to the network. Most modern WLANs are based on IEEE 802.11 standards, marketed under the Wi-Fi brand name. WLANs were once called LAWNs (for local area wireless network) by the Department of Defense." [Wireless LAN.

Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies. Read more
