A network architecture is a blueprint of the complete computer communication network, which provides a framework and technology foundation for designing, building and managing a communication network with a layered structure.
Layering is a modern network design principle which divides the communication tasks into a number of smaller parts, each part accomplishing a particular sub-task and interacting with the other parts in a small number of well-defined ways. Layering allows the parts of a communication to be designed, keeping each design relatively simple.
Principality IT has over a decade of experience in designing and implementing networks from small businesses to enterprise networks.
If a network architecture diagram is open, no single vendor owns the technology and controls its definition and development. Anyone is free to design hardware and software based on the network architecture.
The TCP/IP network architecture, which the Internet is based on, is such an open network architecture and it is adopted as a worldwide network standard and widely deployed in local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), small and large enterprises, and last, but not least, the Internet.
