# Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples

A campus network provides wireless access to the Internet or LAN to users located in two or more buildings or in the open space surrounding those buildings. A campus network is usually set in the campus of a university, but the same kind of planning and design can be applied for other purposes. For example, the campus network can used for an office or industrial park, in a public place like a supermarket with an entertainment center, even on a farm. Another form of temporary campus network can exist during special events such as music festivals or rallies.
The elementary campus networks arise spontaneously: the radio signals from the access points, which provide network inside the building are not limited to its walls, so any user in the backyard can also get wireless network access. The larger and more complex campus network may have additional access points in places specially chosen for serving clients, i.e., on the lawn in front of the college or in a coffee shop around the corner.

## Network Diagram Software Logical Network Diagram

Perfect Network Diagramming Software with examples of LAN Diagrams. ConceptDraw Network Diagram is ideal for network engineers and network designers who need to draw Logical Network diagrams.

## Computer Networking Tools List

Network Diagrams visualize schematically the computer networks topology, equipment nodes and different types of their logical and physical connections. They are widely used by IT professionals to visually document the topology and design of computer and telecommunication networks.

## 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.

## 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.

## ATM Network. Computer and Network Examples

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is a high-speed networking standard intended for supporting the voice and data communications.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software that provides the Computer and Networks solution with wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils and examples to help you design the ATM Networks quick and easy.

## 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.

## Personal area (PAN) networks. Computer and Network Examples

A Personal area network (PAN) is a computer network that is used for data transmission between different personal devices (computers, telephones, digital devices, etc.) and for connecting to the higher level network and Internet. PANs can be wired with computer buses (USB and FireWire). A wireless personal area network (WPAN) can be made using the network technologies such as Bluetooth, IrDa, UWB, Z-Wave, ZigBee, Body Area Network. A personal area network handles the interconnection of IT devices at the surrounding of a single user. Generally, PAN contains from following such appliances: cordless mice and keyboards, cordless phone, Bluetooth handsets.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Personal area network.

## Hybrid 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 is example of the Hybrid network topology.
Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network. There are many types of the network topologies: bus, star, ring, mesh topology, but the most popular is the hybrid topology.
