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.

Office Layout →

Nowadays, more and more attention is paid to the comfort in the workplace, so that employees might be more motivated. Thus, it can be said with full confidence that office layout plays an important role for employees and influences company reputation. Many worldwide known companies have headquarter offices resembling more of a campus than of an office building. Every organization has its own unique office design ideas, needs and requirements. Each of office position requires a certain type of person who has his own requirements, needs and habits. Office layout should be designed to facilitate its business function. The well-organized office space plays an important role in a workflow enhancement and productivity improvement. This office layout diagram demonstrates a typical cubical office layout. This diagram can be use as a template for cubicle office layout organization. This visual example can help shape ideas and design your office layout conception. You can start with adding your requested office furniture objects into your office floor plan. Plants help to create a healthy indoor environment.

Personal area (PAN) networks. Computer and Network Examples →

All computer networks differ by various params, and their size is one of them. As global area networks are the biggest, personal area (PAN) networks are the smallest. Personal computers, smartphones and other devices that have possibility to connect to Internet form a personal network. This diagram was created using ConceptDraw Computer Network Diagrams to represent a typical components of Personal area network. A personal area network (PAN) is the connection of IT devices around an individual person. This sample of personal area network involves a notebook, a personal digital assistant (PDA), and a portable printer. Commonly a PAN contains such wireless devices as mouse, keyboard, smartphone and tablet. A wireless connection is typical for a PAN.Personal area (PAN) networks
