Personal area (PAN) networks.
Computer and Network Examples
A personal area network - PAN is a personal devices network equipped at a limited area. PAN ordinary has such mobile devices: cell phone, tablet, laptop. That type of network could also be wirelessly connected to Internet.
The personal area network concept originates at M.I.T.'s Media Lab thanks to Thomas Zimmerman research. Zimmerman's article the advantage of this technology explains.
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.
A personal area network pros and cons:
- PAN is expedient, lucrative and handy.
- Sometimes has a bad connection to other networks at the same radio bands.
- Bluetooth networks have slow data transfer speed, but comparatively safe.
- Bluetooth has distance limits.

ConceptDraw Arrows10 TechnologyHow should diagramming software work? Is it possible to develop a diagram as quickly as the ideas come to you? The innovative ConceptDraw Smart Connectors Technology - This is more than enough versatility to draw any type of diagram with any degree of complexity. Connection points are necessary for diagramming network, flowchart and organizational charts. In ConceptDraw you connect shapes by attaching, or snapping and gluing, connectors to shape connection points.
Architecture DiagramsThe Architecture Diagrams are the type of diagrams which help to system designers, system developers, and application developers to visualize the overall high-level structure of the system or application and depict the interactions between software systems, users, external systems, data sources, and services. The ConceptDraw PRO Architecture Diagrams Software provides the unique Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park with wide set of powerful tools for fast and easy creating various types of Architecture diagrams.
Home area networks (HAN). Computer and Network ExamplesA Home Area Networks (HAN) is a type of local area network that is used in an individual home. The home computers can be connected together by twisted pair or by a wireless network. HAN facilitates the communication and interoperability among digital devices at the home, allows to easier access to the entertainments and increase the productivity, organize the home security. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the home network diagram.
Basic Network DiagramA computer network diagram for a large network can be complicated and difficult both to understand and to draw. To learn how to deal with complex network diagrams, start with a basic network diagram, showing only the primary network devices and the connections between them. There are software tools to help you with that, such as ConceptDraw PRO, that include templates and examples for simple and common network diagrams. The ConceptDraw solution for making computer network diagrams delivers over a thousand of vector objects, composed into the forty vector libraries that were developed to support drawing of professional-looking computer network diagrams. This diagram of computer network can be used by system administrator as a basic template for making the custom network diagram. Since the responsibilities of network or system administrator include documenting of computer network, drawing network diagrams is an important part of their work.
Cisco Routers. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbolsNetwork infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation. Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety. Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on
Internet Connectivity. Computer and Network ExamplesThe Internet Connectivity of the computers, mobile devices, computer networks to the Internet enables the users to access the various Internet services. There are many ways and technologies of the connection to the Internet with different data signaling rates: Wireless, Ethernet cable, Optical fiber, Dial-up, DSL, broadband Internet access, etc. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows how the customers connect to ISPs and ISPs connect between the tiers (peering and transit).
Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network ExamplesIf we divide computer networks by scale, we get several main categories. The smallest network is PAN, as it connects personal devices themselves, and as the number of users grows, a local area network can be recognized, and campus area networks (CAN) connects several local networks located within some area like a university or a corporation. Computers connected to CAN share public educational materials and list of CAN network examples includes such prestigious universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon. This is an example of a computer network diagram created for a campus area network. It was created using using ConceptDraw solution for the Computer and Network diagramming. The specific of this sample campus network is its distribution. It is rather broad to embrace a big campus territory. This diagram can be applied as a template for designing custom area network topology diagram for a particular educational institution.
Hybrid Network TopologyEvery corporate network is unique, though there are guidelines and best practices in developing networks. As it is quite difficult to implement a pure topology within a company, using a hybrid network topology is considered a better solution. As a rule, such network assembles advantages and features of source topologies. This diagram is an example of the Hybrid network. This type of network topology means a conjunction of other network topologies. Such as star-bus, ring-mesh topologies, etc. It should be obviously diverse networks. The final computer network inherits both advantages and disadvantages of its ingredients. Using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution including vector graphic libraries and templates one can develop professional custom network diagrams of any topology and complexity.
Network Security DevicesHow to describe the necessity of using network security devices and visually illustrate this information? Now, it's very easy thanks to the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Network Security Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Star Network TopologyNodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical. This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.
