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.

Network Glossary Definition →

When talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems. The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.Network Glossary Definition *
