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.

Bureaucratic companies usually are characterized by a strict hierarchy and clearly defined responsibilities. However, sometimes organizational structure of a company reminds of somewhat tangled. To clarify it, you can create an orgchart that will represent the company as a tree with its' departments as branches.
This organization diagram represents a tree-like organizational structure. This is a typical example of a top-level branches of the hierarchical organizational structure. This part of the tree shows heads of branches who are subordinated completely to the president. The information and solutions are distributed though a tree structure down to the company's departments. Each of the sub-division has its own structure that is reflected in the corresponding organizational chart. This orgchart diagram was created using the vector graphic library supplied with ConceptDraw Organizational Charts solution.

Venn diagrams are illustrations used in the branch of mathematics known as set theory. They show the mathematical or logical relationship between different groups of things (sets). A Venn diagram shows all the possible logical relations between the sets.

To connect two or more network devices are used the network cables. There are more different types of the network cables: Coaxial cable, Optical fiber cable, Twisted Pair, Ethernet crossover cable, Power lines and others. They are used depending of the network topology, size, protocol.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

A pie chart is a circular diagram showing a set of data divided into proportional slices. There are several variations of this chart such as donut chart, exploded pie chart, multi-level pie charts. Although it is not very informative when a ring chart or circle chart has many sections, so choosing a low number of data points is quite important for a useful pie chart.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with Pie Charts solution helps to create pie and donut charts for effective displaying proportions in statistics, business and mass media for composition comparison, i.e. for visualization of part percentage inside one total.
