Backbone Network Diagraming
Backbone network is a part of computer network infrastructure that interconnects various pieces of network, providing a path for the exchange of information between different LANs or subnetworks.
ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own Backbone Network Diagrams.
You can use the appropriate stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams object libraries.

This backbone network diagram sample is created using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Computer & Networks solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Computer & Networks solution provides samples, templates and libraries of symbols for all types of computer network diagrams, LAN and WAN floor plan layouts, network communication plans, Cisco network diagrams, Active Directory diagrams, logical and physical network diagrams, network architecture and topology diagrams.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Wireless networking is useful visual tool for identification of all required equipment, and calculation the cost of creating or updating wireless computer networks. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Wireless Networks Solution from the Computer and Networks Area is the best wireless network diagramming software.

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical.
This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.

A Daisy Chain is the simple computer network. It is the easiest way to add more Ethernet devices into the network. In the Daisy Chain network one computer is connected to the next without any intervening devices, thus the message is sent from one computer to the next and then to the next and so on. A Daisy Chain can be linear or ring

Using ConceptDraw you will be able to create bubble diagrams from the ready ConceptDraw library objects or make your own objects. The created diagram can be saved and edited, objects can be moved and links between them will be automatically repainted after object moving because of using the ConceptDraw connectors.

Talking about companies, that have influenced the entire industry, we should mention Cisco and it’s influence on network design. Nowadays, this equipment has became a kind of standard, and Cisco icons, shapes, stencils, symbols and design elements are easily recognized among others. You can use these icons to develop a network diagram of any complexity.
When dealing with creating a pack of network documentation, system administrator often have to depict a network containing a network equipment of such a well-known manufacturer as Cisco. As Cisco has developed its own production standard icons that are strongly recommended to use in Cisco network diagrams. The best way to draw Cisco Network diagram Cisco certified icons is using ConceptDraw solution for Cisco Network Diagrams. Using Cisco symbols library provided by this solution allows system administrator, or network architect to design a prototype of a new network or document an existing one.
