Network Topology Design
Network Topology Diagrams visualize the telecommunication and computer network topology and layout. They display the arrangement of the various elements of the computer network and how they communicate.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software for designing professional looking computer network topology diagrams of any complexity.
The Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides templates, samples and 40 libraries with 1004 vector objects that make your computer network topology diagramming easy, quick and effective.
Example 1. Network Topology Design
This sample shows the network topology diagram of the devices connection to the Internet. It was designed in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The diagrams produced with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

Wide area network (WAN) topology. Computer and Network ExamplesStudying informatics demands knowledge in the area of computer networks as well. The most famous world network, Internet, is an example of wide area network (WAN) topology that connects devices spread on any distance. Unlike other smaller networks that are limited to a building or to a campus, WAN is almost limitless.
This WAN (wide area network) diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 It shows a telecommunication network that covers a large geographical area connecting several settlements. This type of networks is commonly used by business and government institutions. Using the WANs enables them quickly communicate information between remote geographical points. To reproduce this network diagram, you will need the means, provided by ConceptDraw Computer and Network Diagrams solution.

Hotel Network Topology DiagramA network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept letвЂ™s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network.
On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.

Tree Network Topology DiagramWhen designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies.
This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.
