Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

While documenting computer network it is often necessary to describe the existing network structure with the help of schemes or diagrams. It is required to document network configuration, used protocols, logical structure of the network, addresses and names of network objects. Network diagram is the tool for description, study and analysis of network knots and connections between these knots. Created network diagram can present you the existing information in comprehensible graphic view.

Network diagrams are divided into Physical Network Diagrams and Logical Network Diagrams.

As a rule at the development of diagrams ready sets of symbols and pictures for indication of network knots, connections between knots and information about diagram objects are used.

Outer objects, for instance Internet, out of network are described in the form of clouds. Depending on the diagram destination necessary level of the detailed elaboration of the diagram is selected. For instance, on the diagram there can be presented only network objects, such as computers and servers without indication of their parameters and connections type. Similar diagram presents the information about the general structure of the network and is not overloaded with excessive details. Besides, diagrams of different levels of the network contain different types of objects. On the diagram of LAN level (local area network) computers, printers, servers, etc. are displayed whereas on the diagram of WAN level (wide area network) whole buildings and even cities are displayed.

Physical Network Diagram presents to user following information:

  • Telecommunications data, such as cable length, carrying capacity or telecommunication type.
  • Servers with names, IP address (if it is static), server role and domain name.
  • Location of network equipment such as hubs, switches, modems, routers, bridges and printers.
  • Number of network users.

Denote on the diagram all firmware versions of devices, telecommunications parameters, IP addresses assigned to devices and so on.

In contrast to Physical Network Diagram Logical Network Diagram presents the information about logical network structure, including:

  • Domain architecture
  • Used protocols
  • Servers roles
  • Trust relationship

Network diagram is an indispensable tool for network administrators and engineers at development of new networks and management of existing networks.

Cisco Network Design →

Enterprise systems engineers almost every day face the necessity of network diagrams. We should also take into account that Cisco network design is not only limited to computer networks, but, furthermore, you can design telephone networks and much more. You can build an hierarchical model of your network to get better performance and reliability. This network diagram represents the utilization of Conceptdraw DIAGRAM for network documentation creation. The diagram shows schematically the structure of a node of a large Internet service provider, which is completed on the basis of Cisco equipment. This diagram was designed using the vector library containing the images of Cisco equipment, supplied with Cisco Network Diagrams solution. In total, the solution has more than ten libraries including more than 500 vector icons of Cisco equipment.Cisco Network Design *

How to Draw an Organizational Chart →

If your company is in chaos in clutter and no one understands their rights and responsibilities, maybe it's time to change that. One of the ways to put the company in order is to draw an organization chart that would reflect the structure and show the relationships among departments and positions. This is a very useful and easy to understand scheme. This is example of the one of the most typical kind of organizational chart. It depicts an organizational structure of the hierarchical type. Its construction is similarv to pyramid. The single main position on the top - in this case, the mayor's position followed by sub-levels of authority in his command. Each position in the pyramid reports only to his supervisor, and takes only a report of direct subordinates. Such scheme limits the number of communications. This organizational structure is effectively used in public organizations. Also it is suitable for any organization with the need for multiple levels of middle managers. The ability to create organizational charts of different types is supplied with ConceptDraw Ogrcharts solutions.How to Draw an Organization Chart *
