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.

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.

Beginning from the 19th century, people tried to tame electricity. Nowadays, electrical engineering covers a wide range of applications starting from providing illumination in our homes to developing space technologies. Considering the fact that every project needs documentation, engineers use electrical diagram software to develop these projects. Standard electrical symbols of electrical components are recognizable all around the world.
This illustration represents the 26 libraries that are supplied by the ConceptDraw Electrical Engineering solution. The Electric Engineering libraries contains about a thousand objects enabling you to draw various charts depicting electrical connections and circuits, along with schemes of different equipment and devices. The electric engineering libraries delivered with ConceptDraw solution meet the standards adopted in the image to electrical circuits. So they can be used by professionals along with amateurs in electrical engineering.

There are many ways to track the system in a critical situation. To model a system behavior, uml notation is widely used. Usually, an UML diagram consists of elements such as actor and a case.
This diagram represents the structure of UML notations. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used in software engineering to depict graphically the software modeling process. UM Language uses graphic notations for developing models of object-oriented systems. These notations displays requirements, sub-systems, logical and physical elements, etc. We created this diagram using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM reinforced with Rapid UML solution. It can be helpful for students on software engineering, when learning UML.

The Workflow diagrams are the specialized type of flowcharts which allow to visualize any sorts of step-by-step processes. They are usually created as flowcharts, with objects that represent in a simple visual manner the steps in the process connected by arrows that indicate the next step. The ability easily create Workflow diagrams visually describing the tasks, documents associated with the tasks, people which are responsible for execution at each stage of workflow is made possible with Workflow Diagrams solution. This solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with a Workflow Diagram library that contains large collection of predesigned workflow flowchart symbols.
