Network Diagramming Software for Design
Basic Network Diagrams
Design Element Basic Network
Network diagrams visualize schematically computer networks topology, equipment nodes and different types of their logical and physical connections. They are used by IT professionals to visually document the topology and design of computer and telecommunication networks.
ConceptDraw has 1004 vector stencils in the 40 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing own Network Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils from Basic Network library with 51 objects.
Sample 1. Network Diagramming Software
Design Elements — Basic Network (Windows, Macintosh).
ConceptDraw Basic Network library of vector stencils from Computer and Networks solution provides the 51 objects of design element for drawing the computer network diagrams.
Use the Basic Network library to create your own computer network diagrams that show LAN and WAN topology, equipment nodes and their logical and physical connections.

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart.
This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor. The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.

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
