Network Diagramming Software for Design
Computer and Network Diagrams
Design Element Computer and Network Diagrams
Network diagrams visualize schematically computer networks topology, equipment nodes and different types of their logical and physical connections.
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 Computer and Network Diagrams library with 56 objects.
Sample 1. Network Diagramming Software
Design Elements for Computer and Network Diagrams (Windows, Macintosh).
Computer and Network Diagrams library of vector stencils from ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution provides the 56 objects of design element for drawing the computer network diagrams.
Use the Computer and Network Diagrams library to create your own computer network diagrams that show LAN and WAN topology, equipment nodes and their logical and physical connections.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later.
There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.

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.

Rack Diagrams visualize the rack mounting of computer and network equipment as the drawing of frontal view of the rack with equipment installed. They are used for choosing the equipment or racks to buy, and help to organize equipment on the racks virtually, without the real installation.
Network Diagramming Software - ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is perfect for software designers and software developers who need to draw Rack Diagrams.

Network infrastructure planning is a very important process in the network construction, and the share of time allocated to this within the scope of the entire project may reach 60-80%. A competent and thorough approach to planning contributes to the quick investment return, and also increases the reliability and flexibility of the final system, reducing the probability of additional costs related to the incorrect implementation.
Any planning begins with an analysis of the business requirements to the final system. Basic network parameters, which should be assessed are the scalability, accessibility, cost, speed and safety.
Speed and cost are often mistaken for the most important parameters, and the rest of the parameters aren't even remembered. This is not entirely correct. Initially, it is necessary to assess the business plans for the future, because sometimes it is more profitable to invest more money in the beginning. If the business is to develop, then, consequently, demands on

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.
