Telecommunication Network Diagrams

The telecommunication network is a complex of technical means of telecommunications and structures designed for routing, switching, transmitting and receiving the signals, characters, texts, images, sounds or messages of any kind between equipment via wired, wireless, radio, fiber optic or other electromagnetic systems. Thus, the main purpose of work of the telecommunication network is to transmit the information in any form from one to another network user with minimal number of errors and distortions. The telecommunication networks typically include the terminals (inputs and outputs of devices used for data transmission and reception), telecommunication processors that support the data transmission and reception between the terminals and computers, physical communication channels (the ways by which data are transmitted and received, it can be coaxial cables, fiber optic cables), computers, telecommunications and control software. The computers are connected to the network, the telecommunication software is installed on all network computers and controls the network activity and functionality. For transmission the signals through links and for achievement the correct destination terminal, the nodes use the circuit switching, message switching or packet switching. Usually, each terminal at the network has its unique address, that's why the messages are routed to the correct recipients.

The telecommunication networks can be of public use, private, dedicated, virtual private and intelligent; by type of portable signal the networks can be digital or analog. The telecommunication networks assist in increasing the communication abilities, in effective extension and allocation resources. On the base of communication networks can be easily built the information networks, thus on the base of Ethernet networks are built the TCP/IP networks, which in turn form the Internet global network. The most common examples of telecommunication networks are computer networks, telephone networks, Internet, global Telex network, aeronautical ACARS network, and others.

A communications satellite, or 'comsat', is an artificial satellite that is sent to the space for the purpose of telecommunications. The modern communication satellites can use different kinds of orbits, such as geostationary orbits, elliptical orbits, Molniya orbits, polar and non-polar low Earth orbits. One of the most important applications of communication satellites is a telephone communication with ships, planes, vehicles and hand-held terminals. The communications satellites are successfully used for TV and radio broadcasting, they ensure the fixed point-to-point services, provide the microwave radio relay technologies.

Example 5: GPRS Network Scheme

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Telecommunication Networks Library from the Telecommunication Network Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

General packet radio service (GPRS) technology allows to modify the communications at the minimal costs. It is a packet-based wireless communication service, standardized by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and used on 2G and 3G mobile wireless networks. The principle of GPRS is based on the fact that the radio channel is divided into the intervals, named as timeslots. In each moment of time, the part of slots remains free and so can be used for the data transmission, this opportunity is used by GPRS. The usual GSM phone always uses one slot, at the same time the GPRS devices use several slots, that contributes for the faster data transfer. Besides, GPRS is a service with variable throughput and latency, which depend directly on the number of users that received the concurrent access to the service. This Network diagram shows the scheme of organization of GPRS and the flow of data traffic in such network.

This Telecommunication Network Diagram sample illustrates the scheme of realization the Satellite Internet. It is the Internet access provided via the satellite, which was launched and revolves on the geostationary Earth orbit, named also GEO or geosynchronous orbit, i.e. located just above the equator of our planet, and moves around it with an angular speed equal to the angular speed of the Earth around its axis. To receive the signal, it is necessary to direct a satellite dish (antenna) with a transceiver or VSAT, which is located on the subscriber's premises, exactly on the Earth satellite on the orbit. For the earth observer it hangs immovable in the sky in a certain place, on which must be turned the satellite dish. Usually the Satellite Internet includes the ground stations called gateways that transmit the Internet data to and from the satellite, through the radio waves. The satellite works on a Star network topology, so the number of remote VSATs is unlimited.

Telecommunication Network Diagrams

The ability to transmit data electronically has revolutionized how we make contact with each other. It's over 150 years since the Morse telegraph system was introduced, and its popularity was instantaneous — no longer would individuals have to wait days for their hand written note to be transferred across country by horseback or train; messages could be received a moment after they were sent, and responded to in the same fashion.

In recent times, global communication needs have surged and diversified, evolving with technology to accommodate business or social interactions on an international scale. A whole host of devices have come to replace the simple Morse transmitter, allowing information to be sent through radio waves, along cables, or by radar. Some networks can use combinations of all these and more, to a point where there are very few places in the world unreachable by means of telecommunication.

On a smaller scale, a telecommunication network can simply represent a roomful of computers, that are directly linked to one another. It is also how you would describe a telephone exchange, that connects calls between landlines, switching the direction of data depending on the number you dial. Government and military agencies often require specialized networks — in the case of the emergency services, a system called trunked radio is used, whereby many users can access a two-way radio system using a relatively low amount of frequencies. Aviation industries use ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System), a system that utilizes airbound radio or satellite, to communicate between aircraft and ground control.

With the possibility of such varied and wide-ranging networks, it's considered best practice to plan physical and logical system topology in a visual fashion, through the use of various forms of diagrams.

Physical topology diagrams are concerned with the actual real-life devices and components of a network, their locations relative to each other, and the cabling system that connects them. In contrast, a logical topology diagram describes the flow of data around a network — how system nodes communicate, what network protocols are in place, and how this affects data transmission. Diagrams like these can be very specific, focusing on a small aspect or area of a larger telecommunications system. When combining the two, and taking a wider look at a system, the image scan be described as a network architecture diagram.

As well as acting as a simple planning tool for system engineers — a way of deciding if a certain network arrangement is feasible — telecommunication diagrams aid in all aspects of network management. They can be used for security purposes, to identify weak points in a system, and visualize which users have access to certain devices or data files. Software and hardware engineers can envisage systems that allow for the best access to centralized data and programs, and ensure maximum efficiency from each device due to it's placement within the network. As a simple means of sharing information, diagrams are a great way of reducing large-scale, global networks onto a single page, using icons to represent radio waves, mobile transmissions, or satellite links.
