Overview[ edit ] Definitions of complexity often depend on the concept of a confidential " system " — a set of parts or elements that have relationships among them differentiated from relationships with other elements outside the relational regime. Many definitions tend to postulate or assume that complexity expresses a condition of numerous elements in a system and numerous forms of relationships among the elements.
OSI defines and codifies the concept of layered network architecture. It is a way of sub-dividing a communications system further into smaller parts called layers. A layer is a collection of similar functions that provide services to the layer above it and receives services from the layer below it.
On each layer, an instance provides services to the instances at the layer above and requests service from the layer below. Distributed computing In distinct usage in distributed computingthe term "network architecture" often describes the structure and classification of a distributed application architecture, as the participating nodes in a distributed application are often referred to as a "network".
For example, the applications architecture of the public switched telephone network PSTN has been termed the Advanced Intelligent Network.
There are any number of specific classifications but all lie on a continuum between the dumb network e. Internet and the intelligent computer network e. Other networks contain various elements of these two classical types to make them suitable for various types of applications.
Recently the context aware networkwhich is a synthesis of two, has gained much interest with its ability to combine the best elements of both. A popular example of such usage of the term in distributed applications, as well as PVCs permanent virtual circuitsis the organization of nodes in peer-to-peer P2P services and networks.
P2P networks usually implement overlay networks running over an underlying physical or logical network. These overlay network may implement certain organizational structures of the nodes according to several distinct models, the network architecture of the system. Network architecture is a broad plan that specifies everything necessary for two application programs on different networks on an Internet to be able to work together effectively.The purpose of the proposed qualification standard is to provide those who have the responsibility for the computer network infrastructure within FDA regulated industry, specific information and guidance to effectively support both business and regulatory compliance expectations.
