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.

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.

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.

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.

How To Create CCTV Network Diagram

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses cameras and monitors to carry out video surveillance. Unlike broadcast television this system has only local signal. It is a feature of almost every video camera, yet CCTV is mainly a system for visual control of certain areas such as banks, airports, supermarkets, and other places for security reasons.
Developing and installing CCTV system is a time-consuming process. It also requires certain knowledge and skills. ConceptDraw is a solution of setting video cameras rationally. You can achieve two aims at once: CCTV Design Tool saves your time and your money and helps you make professional video surveillance system.
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]

Basic Network Diagram

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

CCTV Network Diagram Software

The CCTV is the process that carried out using the video cameras for transmitting the signal to the specific location, on the limited set of monitors. We are talking about the video cameras that are used for monitoring on such guarded objects as airports, banks, stores, military objects, etc. CCTV equipment is also used in the industrial installations, for surveillance in the public places, for recording the video on the digital video recorders.

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.
