Cisco Switches and Hubs. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols
Cisco switches and hubs deliver the best performance, and often used as network solutions for small businesses, enterprises, data centers. Cisco switches are the core interconnect devices of each computer network. The numerous Cisco switches specifically designed for various applications. Network switches are separated for two types: fixed configuration and modular switches. The fixed configuration switches deprecate swapping or adding another module, and vice versa for modular switch.

Example 3. Cisco Network Diagrams Solution
Use the Cisco Network Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own professional looking diagrams of any complexity quick, easy and effective. Pick carefully each Cisco icon to make your diagrams successful.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Cisco Network Diagrams Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.

TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a general-purpose modeling language for systems engineering applications.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software was extended with SysML Solution from the Software Development Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park specially to help systems engineers design various model systems with SysML.
An Enterprise private network (EPN) is a computer network built by an enterprise to interconnect the sites of the company (such as head and remote offices, shops, production sites, etc.) on purpose to share the computer resources.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the Enterprise Private Network (EPN) using the frame-relay and dial-up.

Office design must to be well thought-out. It is especially important for the small offices, where each detail is in sight. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software offers you the Office Layout Plans Solution from the Building Plans Area for quick and easy creating detailed Small Office Design plans.

In general, you can use any icons to represent network equipment on a diagram. However, there are some icons, for instance, Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols, that are recognizable worldwide. Using those icons you can create Cisco network topology diagrams in minutes and share them anywhere.
The icons depicting Cisco network equipment are recognized and generally applied as standard images for designing network diagrams. They are free to used , but can not be reworked. Cisco network diagrams are created to depict how signals processed on the network equipment and end-user computers and how data transfer through LAN or WLAN between nodes. The vector graphic library of ConceptDraw CISCO Network Diagrams solution includes about 90 icons of Cisco network equipment for designing computer network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

Network infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation.
Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety.
Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on

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.
