Computer network diagram - Template

"A computer network diagram is a schematic depicting the nodes and connections amongst nodes in a computer network or, more generally, any telecommunications network. ...
Readily identifiable icons are used to depict common network appliances e.g. Router, and the style of lines between them indicate the type of connection. Clouds are used to represent networks external to the one pictured for the purposes of depicting connections between internal and external devices, without indicating the specifics of the outside network. ...
At different scales diagrams may represent various levels of network granularity. At the LAN level, individual nodes may represent individual physical devices, such as hubs or file servers, while at the WAN level, individual nodes may represent entire cities. In addition, when the scope of a diagram crosses the common LAN/MAN/WAN boundaries, representative hypothetical devices may be depicted instead of showing all actually existing nodes."

Server rack diagrams visualize the rack mounting of a computer and network equipment as a frontal view of the rack with the equipment installed. They are used when choosing which equipment or racks to buy, and to see if a particular configuration works, without having to go through a physical install.
"In the hardware sense, the word server typically designates computer models intended for hosting software applications under the heavy demand of a network environment. In this client–server configuration, one or more machines, either a computer or a computer appliance, share information with each other with one acting as a host for the other[s].

While nearly any personal computer is capable of acting as a network server, a dedicated server will contain features making it more suitable for production environments. These features may include a faster CPU, increased high-performance RAM, and increased storage capacity in the form of a larger or multiple hard drives. Servers also typically have reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) and fault tolerance features, such as redundancy in power supplies, storage (as in RAID), and network connections."

"A server is a system (software and suitable computer hardware) that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. Servers can be run on a dedicated computer, which is also often referred to as "the server", but many networked computers are capable of hosting servers. In many cases, a computer can provide several services and have several servers running.
Servers operate within a client-server architecture. Servers are computer programs running to serve the requests of other programs, the clients. Thus, the server performs some tasks on behalf of clients. The clients typically connect to the server through the network but may run on the same computer. In the context of Internet Protocol (IP) networking, a server is a program that operates as a socket listener.
Servers often provide essential services across a network, either to private users inside a large organization or to public users via the Internet. Typical computing servers are database server, file server, mail server, print server, web server, gaming server, application server, or some other kind of server.
Numerous systems use this client / server networking model including Web sites and email services. An alternative model, peer-to-peer networking enables all computers to act as either a server or client as needed." [Server (computing). Wikipedia]

"An application server can be either a software framework that provides a generalized approach to creating an application-server implementation, without regard to what the application functions are, or the server portion of a specific implementation instance. In either case, the server's function is dedicated to the efficient execution of procedures (programs, routines, scripts) for supporting its applied applications." [Application server. Wikipedia]
"Hardware requirement for servers vary, depending on the server application. Absolute CPU speed is not quite as critical to a server as it is to a desktop machine. Servers' duties to provide service to many users over a network lead to different requirements such as fast network connections and high I/O throughout. Since servers are usually accessed over a network, they may run in headless mode without a monitor or input device. Processes that are not needed for the server's function are not used. Many servers do not have a graphical user interface (GUI) as it is unnecessary and consumes resources that could be allocated elsewhere. Similarly, audio and USB interfaces may be omitted. ...
As servers need a stable power supply, good Internet access, increased security and are also noisy, it is usual to store them in dedicated server centers or special rooms. This requires reducing the power consumption, as the extra energy used generates more heat thus causing the temperature in the room to exceed acceptable limits; hence normally, server rooms are equipped with air conditioning devices. Server casings are usually flat and wide (typically measured in "rack units"), adapted to store many devices next to each other in a server rack. Unlike ordinary computers, servers usually can be configured, powered up and down or rebooted remotely, using out-of-band management, typically based on IPMI." [Server (computing). Wikipedia]
A rack diagram is useful for designing and documenting of network rack server equipment (19-inch or 23-inch rack, rack cabinet, rack unit, network switch, router, KVM switch, server) of data centers, ISP facilities and corporate server rooms.

Rack Diagrams visualize the rack mounting of computer hardware and network equipment as the drawing of frontal view of the rack with equipment installed.
They are used for choosing the equipment or racks to buy, and help to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation.

Network Diagramming with ConceptDraw PRO

At the moment computer networks are widespread, various types of computer networks are constructed around the world, operate and interact with each other. There are many kinds of computer networks that differ in the transmission medium, in communications protocols, in size, topology, organizational intent, and also in territorial basis. There are popular such types of computer networks as Global Area Network (GAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), Metropolitan Area Network (MAN), Local Area Network (LAN). ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful network diagramming software, perfect for software engineers, software designers and software developers who need to draw Computer Network diagrams, designs, schematics, and network maps in no time. The pre-drawn shapes representing computers, network devices and smart connectors offered by ConceptDraw solutions help to create the accurate diagrams and documentation, represent computer network topologies and designs, depict Computer network architectures, logical, physical, cable networks, and vehicular networks.

"Network planning and design is an iterative process, encompassing topological design, network-synthesis, and network-realization, and is aimed at ensuring that a new telecommunications network or service meets the needs of the subscriber and operator. Network planning process involves three main steps: 1) Topological design: This stage involves determining where to place the components and how to connect them. 2) Network-synthesis: This stage involves determining the size of the components used, subject to performance criteria such as the Grade of Service (GoS). 3) Network realization: This stage involves determining how to meet capacity requirements, and ensure reliability within the network."

"A call centre or call center is a centralised office used for the purpose of receiving or transmitting a large volume of requests by telephone. An inbound call centre is operated by a company to administer incoming product support or information inquiries from consumers. Outbound call centers are operated for telemarketing, solicitation of charitable or political donations, debt collection and market research. In addition to a call centre, collective handling of letter, fax, live support software,social media and e-mail at one location is known as a contact centre.
A call centre is operated through an extensive open workspace for call centre agents, with work stations that include a computer for each agent, a telephone set or headset connected to a telecom switch, and one or more supervisor stations. It can be independently operated or networked with additional centres, often linked to a corporate computer network, including mainframes, microcomputers and LANs. Increasingly, the voice and data pathways into the centre are linked through a set of new technologies called computer telephony integration (CTI)." [Call centre. Wikipedia]
