Techopedia explains Network Architecture

Network Architecture provides the detail overview of a network. It is used to classify all the network layers step-by-step in logical form by describing each step in detail. It is also based on the complete working definitions of the protocols. The architecture is emphaiszed in a distributed computing environment and its complexity can not be understood without a framework. Therefore there is a need to develop applications or methods to layout an overview of a network.
