Network Diagram Examples

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming software includes huge collection of network diagrams examples, computer and network templates, design objects and stencils.

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

A Wide area network (WAN) is a telecommunication network that is used for connecting computers and covers a wide geographical area. WANs often contain a few smaller networks (LANs, MANs, etc.). The packet switching and circuit switching technologies are effectively used in WANs.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Wide area network topology.

Wireless Network WAN

Wireless Networks solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software to help network engineers and designers efficiently design, create and illustrate WAN network diagram of any complexity. The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software helps users to quickly transit from an idea to the implementation of a Wireless Network WAN

Cisco WAN. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols

The ConceptDraw vector stencils library Cisco WAN contains equipment symbols for drawing the computer wide area network diagrams.
"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]
The physical LAN and WAN diagram template for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software is included in the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

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.

Network Diagram Software Home Area Network

Home Area Network Diagrams visualize the communication schemes of Home Area Networks, and the networks arrangement in private houses and buildings. They are used for schematic visual documents of the Home Area Network structure and arrangement. ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own Home Area Network Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams objects library.

Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Network diagram is the tool for description, study and analysis of network knots and connections between these knots. Created network diagram can present you the existing information in comprehensible graphic view.
Network diagrams are divided into Physical Network Diagrams and Logical Network Diagrams.
Network diagram is an indispensable tool for network administrators and engineers at development of new networks and management of existing networks.

"In computing, a firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another outside network, such as the Internet, that is assumed to not be secure or trusted. Firewalls are often categorized as either network firewalls or host-based firewalls. Network firewalls are a software appliance running on general purpose hardware or hardware-based firewall computer appliances that filter traffic between two or more networks. Host-based firewalls provide a layer of software on one host that controls network traffic in and out of that single machine. Firewall appliances may also offer other functionality to the internal network they protect such as acting as a DHCP or VPN server for that network." [Firewall (computing). Wikipedia]
The cybersecurity diagram example "Firewall between LAN and WAN" was created using the ConceprDraw PRO software extended with the Network Security Diagrams solution from the Computer and Neworks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Cisco Network Objects in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is the only application on the Macintosh platform, supplied with a comprehensive Cisco icon set. For graphic solutions that support Windows, only Microsoft Visio has a library of Cisco shapes. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a valuable option to many network professionals that use Macintosh computers or work in a combined Mac and PC environment.

Using Both Wired and Wireless Connections

The ConceptDraw Wireless Networks solution helps users to quickly transit from an idea to the implementation of a both wired and wireless computer networks.

Basic Network Diagram

A perfect tool to draw basic computer network diagrams, designs, schematics, and network maps. Numerous stencils and templates.

Network Printer

Special libraries of highly detailed, accurate shapes and computer graphics, servers, hubs, switches, printers, mainframes, face plates, routers etc.

Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples

Metropolitan Area Network combines local networks located within a city, and is based on high data rate compounds, implemented on the basis of fiber channels and other digital data transmission channels. Now, with the increasing number of network communities, wireless local area networks based on 802.11b standard are combined into a wireless metropolitan area network consisting of affordable antenna systems and consumer-grade wireless equipment using 802.11a and 802.11b standards.

Cisco Network Templates

Cisco has a huge number of enterprise clients in the corporate environment. Therefore many network engineers should draw network diagrams for Cisco hardware.
ConceptDraw has Cisco network diagram templates:

Wireless Mesh Network, Network Organization Chart, Roaming Wireless Local Area Network, Cisco ISG Topology Diagram, Cisco Express Forwarding Sample that facilitates drawing at the initial stage.

However for customizing Cisco network diagrams you can use 13 Libraries like this: Cisco Basic, Cisco Buildings, Cisco IBM, Cisco LAN, Cisco WAN, Cisco Media, Cisco Optical, Cisco People, Cisco Routers, Cisco Security, Cisco Switches&Hub, Cisco Telepresences, etc.

This take great advantage to you for designing Cisco network diagram templates.

Point to Point Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the Point-to-point network topology.
Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network.
Point-to-point network topology is a simple topology that displays the network of exactly two hosts (computers, servers, switches or routers) connected with a cable. Point-to-point topology is widely used in the computer networking and computer architecture.
