Network topologies diagram
"Network topology is the arrangement of the various elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a computer network. Essentially, it is the topological structure of a network, and may be depicted physically or logically. Physical topology refers to the placement of the network's various components, including device location and cable installation, while logical topology shows how data flows within a network, regardless of its physical design. Distances between nodes, physical interconnections, transmission rates, and/or signal types may differ between two networks, yet their topologies may be identical. The study of network topology recognizes eight basic topologies: Point-to-point, Bus, Star, Ring or circular, Mesh, Tree, Hybrid, Daisy chain." [Network topology. Wikipedia]
The computer network topologies diagram example was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
