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.

No building project can exist without an electrical circuit map. It’s more convenient to develop electrical drawing with a proper software which would contain vector shapes and electrical symbols. This will help in the future if any problems appear.
This circuit diagram shows the scheme of a location of components and connections of the electrical circuit using a set of standard symbols. It can be use for graphical documentation of an electrical circuit components. There are many of different electric circuit symbols that can be used in a circuit diagram. Knowing how to read circuit diagrams is a useful skill not only for professionals, but for any person who can start creating his own small home electronic projects.

To your mind, deliberation about the profits of creating organizational charts takes more time than actually creating itself. If lack of software is the only thing that stops you, you should know that organizational charts with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are created within a few minutes. Owing to the great number of ready-to-use templates, you’ll get your chart easily.
Chart is a very handy format for visually depicting official relations of an organization. Usually, an Orgchart (organizational chart) consists from simple geometrical shapes, containing an information on a position, personal data, and the lines that means responsibilities and accountabilities associated with position. ConceptDraw solution designed for making organizational charts enables one to create various org charts effortlessly using special templates and vector libraries.
