Cisco Routers. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols
Developing a network design, one should take into account the potential number of users, required interfaces, communication channels and then create a network map and an IP plan. You should also try to stick to the hierarchical network model, which has many advantages. First of all, it is the clarity of the network's organization. Also, the model implies modularity, which means easy capacity building if needed.
Another advantage is the increased resiliency which is achieved due to the duplication of devices or connections. According to this model, the network is divided into three logical layers. First level is the core level. There are high-performance devices at this level, such as routers, which main task is to transport data. This is followed by distribution level which provides the use of security policies, QoS, link aggregation and VLAN trunking, defines broadcast domains. The final level is the access level, the purpose of which is to connect the end devices, to mark traffic for the QoS, to implement ring protection(STP) and broadcast storm protection, to providing power to PoE devices.
The Cisco Network Diagrams solution uses Cisco network symbols and Cisco icons to visualize computer networks topology and equipment connections and arrangement. They are used by IT professionals and corporate IT departments, and network and system administrators, to visually document the topology and design of Cisco networks.
The ConceptDraw vector stencils library "Cisco Routers" contains 27 equipment symbols for drawing the computer network diagrams using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software:

Sample 1. Design Elements — Cisco Routers (macOS, Windows) for Network Diagrams. Network equipment refers to hardware devices designed for local area networks, both wired and wireless. Active network equipment is powered from the electricity supply, portable battery, the computer via USB-port and other sources, also it can be used for amplification, conversion and processing of the network signal. Network equipment includes several device categories. Internal and external network adapters are used to connect to the network. Switches connect network nodes. Routers connect multiple network segments and filter traffic. Repeaters and amplifiers increase the range of action of the network signal. Media converters and transceivers convert the network signal from one type to another. Access points provide wireless access to an existing network or create a new wireless network. GSM-modems and gateways used to work with wireless GSM / GPRS / EDGE / UMTS / HSPA / LTE-networks.
The example "Design elements — Cisco Routers" is included in the Cisco Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts.
Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.
