How to draw Logical Network Diagram
Logical Network Diagrams visualize the computer and telecommunication networks logical structure. They are used by IT professionals and corporate IT departments, network and system administrators to visually document the topology of computer and telecommunication networks. ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own Logical Network Diagrams.
You can use the appropriate stencils from Computer and Network Diagrams object libraries.

A list of parameters on which networks differ is very long. A large network with a range up to 50 kilometers is called metropolitan area network (MAN), and this type of network can include several local area networks. Metropolitan networks in their turn connect into global area networks.
Here you will see a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). This is an extensive network which occupies a large territory including a few buildings or even the whole city. The space of the MAN is bigger than LAN, but lower than WAN. MAN comprise a lot of communication equipment and delivers the Internet connection to the LANs in the city area. Computer and Networks solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a set of libraries with ready-to-use vector objects to design various kinds of computer networks.

A network diagram is used to depict the topology of a computer network or, talking more broadly, any telecommunications network in general. In order for a computer network diagram to be understandable, clearly identifiable icons must be used for each network appliance. Cisco network templates, also called Network Topology Icons, is a brand of symbols developed and used by Cisco. Since Cisco Systems is the largest networking company in the world, it's list of networking symbols is widely recognized and exhaustive.
The diagram of the ISG network topology diagram illustrates the Cisco Intelligent Services Gateway. Since Cicso company offers service providers a possibility to provide control of state and resources in a broadband network, network architects and engineers need some facilities to create ISG topology diagrams.This Cisco ISG network diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using its solution for Cisco network diagrams. The vector library of this solution comprises over 500 icons of Cisco hardware and accessories. They can be used to design LAN, WAN, ISG and other Cisco equipped network diagrams.

Developing a corporate network starts from choosing equipment such as servers or routers. You should choose a topology for your network depending on your needs and budget. Thus, a star topology is cheap to implement, and mesh topology, for instance, is more reliable.
This network diagram illustrates various types of computer network diagrams. Here one can find out the samples of Star, Ring, common Bus and even a rather rare fully connected network topologies. This diverse array of diagrams was created using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and its solution designed especially for computer networking: design and documenting. There are more than 2 thousands graphical symbols of network equipment in the solution's vector libraries. You can create a diagram of any type network, containing any equipment and connections - no matter is it the most ancient or the super-modern network

Planning a computer network can be a challenge for a junior specialist. However, knowing how to draw a computer network diagrams isn’t a rocket science anymore. There are a lot of special software for creating such diagrams with predesigned templates and examples.
The core for Network Fault Tolerance System presented here, is the equipment of Cisco. You can see here the certified Cisco equipment icons. Generally, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries contain more than half of a thousand objects representing the standardized images of Cisco equipment. ConceptDraw solution for network diagramming is a great network diagramming tool for any level skills - from students to network guru.
