Network Hub in Network Diagrams
Computer Networks includes a Network Hubs that is a device for connecting multiple Ethernet devices together and making them act as a single network segment. ConceptDraw has numerous pre-designed Network Hubs for all possible types of networks:
- Cisco Networks
- Apple Networks
- IVR Networks
- GPRS Networks
- Rack Diagrams

This network diagram sample is created using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software enhanced with Computer & Networks solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Computer & Networks solution provides examples and templates of network architecture, topology, and design diagrams.
Computer & Networks solution also provides libraries of symbols for network components like server, computer, router, switch, hub, access point, firewall, etc.
Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM program with of Computer & Networks solution as tools to draw professional-looking network diagrams quickly and easily, and to clearly present and communicate it to IT and telecom engineers, stakeholders and end-users.

Cisco icons are globally recognized and generally accepted as standard for network icon topologies. The ConceptDraw vector stencils library "Cisco buildings" contains 21 symbols for drawing the computer network diagrams using the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software.

The VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch (vDS) is the new virtual switch (vSwitch) with vSphere 4 that extends the set of features of the VMware vNetwork Standard Switch (vSS). The VMware vSS is the base-level virtual networking alternative that extends the capabilities, configuration and appearance of the standard vSwitch in VMware ESX 3.5 to ESX 4.0 and vSphere 4.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the VMware vDS network diagram.

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.

To connect two or more network devices are used the network cables. There are more different types of the network cables: Coaxial cable, Optical fiber cable, Twisted Pair, Ethernet crossover cable, Power lines and others. They are used depending of the network topology, size, protocol.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Wireless network topology — logical topology.
Wireless network topology shows how the computers connect each other when there is no physical connection. The computers communicate each using the wireless devices.
