ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software is the best for drawing professional looking Computer Network Diagrams thanks to the network icons from the libraries of Computer Network Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Example 1. Use of network icons in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software
Computer Network Diagrams Solution provides 8 libraries with more than 245 predesigned vector network icons. Look at this diversity of choice, click to enlarge.
Now, all that you need for making your own network diagram in minutes is simply drag the desired objects from the libraries and arrange them on your diagram. All objects are vector, so you can resize them at your pleasure without losing any quality.
Example 2. 10Base-T Star Network Topology Diagram
This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the network icons from the Computer Network Diagrams Solution. It visually shows one of computer network topologies - 10Base-T Star Network Topology Diagram. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
The network diagrams designed with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio), printing and send via e-mail in one moment.

A database is a data collection, structured into some conceptual model. Two most common approaches of developing data models are UML diagrams and ER-model diagrams. There are several notations of entity-relationship diagram symbols and their meaning is slightly different. Crow’s Foot notation is quite descriptive and easy to understand, meanwhile, the Chen notation is great for conceptual modeling.
An entity relationship diagrams look very simple to a flowcharts. The main difference is the symbols provided by specific ERD notations. There are several models applied in entity-relationship diagrams: conceptual, logical and physical. Creating an entity relationship diagram requires using a specific notation. There are five main components of common ERD notations: Entities, Actions, Attributes, Cardinality and Connections. The two of notations most widely used for creating ERD are Chen notation and Crow foot notation. By the way, the Crow foot notation originates from the Chen notation - it is an adapted version of the Chen notation.

The term “cloud” is very popular and widely used now, it is a server, data processing centre, or a network which lets to store the data and software, provides access to them, allows to run applications without installation and gives the possibility to process data hosted remotely via the Internet connection.
For documenting the Cloud Computing Architecture with a goal to facilitate the communication between stakeholders are successfully used the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams. It is convenient and easy to draw various Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with help of tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

While studying, many of the students encounter the necessity of remaking class projects, over and over. To facilitate this process you can use special electrical and telecom plan software, which helps altering projects in several clicks. Using templates will fasten your work, and you will have more free time.
This sample represents an electrical and telecommunication floor plan. Electrical and telecom floor plans contain a floor plan , on which imposed the layout of electrical, and telecommunications equipment. They shows electrical and telecom details regarding the current floor of a building: lightening, fixtures, wires, outlets, circuit panels, etc. Using of standart notation of electrical and telecommunication symbols makes the plan understandable for engineers, architects, constructors, specialist in electricity and telecommunications.

Computer and Networks solution provides examples, templates and vector stencils library with symbols of local area network (LAN) and wireless LAN (WLAN) equipment.
This example of computer network topology diagram shows home WLAN equipment and their connection to the Internet.

A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies.

When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.
