Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples

Local Area Network (LAN) is a network which consists of computers and peripheral devices connected each other and to the local domain server, and covers a little territory or small number of buildings, such as home, school, laboratory, office, etc. LAN serves for few hundreds of users. It includes many cables and wires, and demands to design previously a Network diagram. All local area network devices can use the shared printers and disk storage. ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect network diagramming software with examples of LAN Diagrams, templates and predesigned vector objects. ConceptDraw PRO is the ideal choice for network engineers and network designers who need to draw fast and easy Local Area Network Diagrams, for IT specialists, developers and other IT professionals which need to visualize the communication schemes of LAN and visually document the LAN's physical structure and arrangement in houses, offices and other buildings. Ready-to-use vector objects from Computer Network Diagrams solution will help you design LAN diagrams in minutes. Read more

Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples

Campus Area Network (CAN) is a computer network which provides wireless access to the Internet or LAN for the users located in two or more buildings on the limited geographical area, or in the open space surrounding these buildings. Campus Area Network is usually set in campus of a university or college, but the same kind of planning and design can be applied for other purposes, for enterprises, office buildings, military bases, industrial complexes, public places like supermarkets, entertainment centers, etc. Another form of temporary CAN can exist during some special events such as rallies, music festivals. The elementary Campus Area Network can also arise spontaneously, due to the distance of spread the radio signals from the access points that are not limited by buildings walls. It is also sensible to have additional access points for the larger and more complex CANs, located at specially places chosen for serving clients. Design easy diagrams and schemes for the Campus Area Networks with Computer Network Diagrams solution for ConceptDraw PRO. Read more

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

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.

Wireless 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 sample shows the Wireless network topology. Wireless network topology is a logical topology. It shows how the computers connect and interact each other when there is no physical connection, no cables connecting the computers. The computers communicate each other directly, using the wireless devices. Wireless networks can have infrastructure or ad hoc topology. Read more

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

Wide area network (WAN) is a type of telecommunication network, which is used to connect the computers on a wide geographical area. WANs are quite popular and widely used networks, the most known and bright example of WAN is the Internet. They offer exceedingly convenient and quick way of exchanging information and data between employees, suppliers, and clients that are geographically remote each other. WANs are often constructed from several smaller networks (LANs, MANs, etc.) and use effectively different packet switching and circuit switching technologies. ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful network diagramming software. Including Computer and Networks Area with extensive variety of solutions, ConceptDraw PRO offers a lot of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils, wide set of examples and samples, helping the business and government entities effectively design professional-looking Wide area networks (WANs) and Wide area network topology diagrams of any complexity. Wide export capabilities of ConceptDraw PRO greatly extend your opportunities. Read more
