Creating a local area network diagram

Computer networks come in three particular types: personal area networks (PAN), wide area networks (WAN), and local area networks (LAN). A PAN refers to an individual’s work space, whereas a WAN describes an extensive network that spans a large geographical range. A LAN connects devices in a specific local area, such as computer lab, school, home, or office building. IT professionals are most likely to diagram LANs in the course of their daily work.

With Lucidchart, you can easily make this kind of diagram. Enjoy the advantages of an extensive shape library and custom sizing, colors, and image upload.
