Network Diagrams are an important tool which gives you a clear picture of your network topology connections and processes. It often helps you see the drawbacks in your infrastructure and realize how you can fix it. If you have accurate schema of your network and its connections at hand, you are ready to find a quick solution when the issues come up.
Network Topology in communication networks helps understand how the network is arranged, with all its nodes and connecting lines. The network geometry can be described via the physical topology or the logical topology.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Computer Network Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area offers extensive drawing tools which make it a powerful Network Topology Mapper.
Computer Network Diagrams Solution offers a variety of predesigned templates and samples and 8 libraries with numerous ready-to-use vector objects, which will help create network topology diagrams of any complexity in minutes.
How To Create Network Topology Diagram
ConceptDraw can be used both for business diagrams and drawing and for creating network diagrams. The detailed menu and icon layout make the tool easy to use. Its Drag-n-Drop functionality requires very little training to learn the basics of its software and use it regularly. You can now create custom objects or shapes and save them in the Library for future usage.
Launch ConceptDraw DIAGRAM
Set a page orientation: File – Page Setup – Horizontal Orientation – Ok.
In the Computer Network Diagrams Solution open the libraries containing the necessary shapes:
At the Network hardware library drag a NETGEAR Fast Ethernet hub object.Rename it “Hub”.
Holding down the Option key (ALT), copy the object. Place the copies on the page.
Drag a Workstation object from the Computer network library.
Holding down the Option key (ALT), copy the object. Place the copies on the page.
Use Direct Connector from the Toolbar.
Open Inspectors – Line tab. Set the endpoints.
Choose the connector’s color.
Connect all the objects on the page in a required direction.
From the File menu open the Document Properties – Page Size – Adjust to Drawing Contents – Ok.
Using Cmd+A, select all the objects.
Open Inspectors – Text tab. Select the font and the Text size. Change the Text color.
Using the yellow diamond around the text box, move it to the right place.
Save your document via the File menu – Save or Save As.
Choose Export in the File menu to export your document to different formats.
You can import/export Visio files and change them according to your needs.
Your drawing is ready!
The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers over 70 templates and thousands of shapes, including IT focused elements that represent Network Security, Azure Architecture, AWS Architecture, Cloud Computing, Cisco Network, Wireless Networks, Vehicular Networking, Telecommunication Network, Active Directory components, as well as detailed network components and network appliances and routes.

When designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies.
This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.
An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. Electrical connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices.
26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.

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.

What is the ideal GUI interface? The interface of mobile device it's all that users see on it and can interact - screen, bars, icons of applications. So the interface is the first that draws the user's attention. The main goal of software engineers, GUI interface designers, and GUI developers is to make the interface first of all easy for perception and understanding, convenient and attractive for the users. The iPhone's GUI interface meets all these requirements.
The UML Diagrams are widely used by software developers and software engineers. They can draw the UML Diagrams manually on the paper, but it is incredibly convenient to use the special UML diagramming software. The UML diagramming software allows you to draw the UML Diagrams in a few minutes.

What is landscape design? It's a floor plan but for an outdoor area.
Same as a floor plan, a landscape design represents visually any site using scaled dimensions.
The main purpose of landscape design is to plan the layout for an outdoor area no matter is it a personal site plan for your home or a commercial plan for business. It may also be handful when a new installation, repair or even an outdoor event is planning.
It helps to calculate time and decide which materials should be used in your project. Landscape designs perfectly gives the property owner and landscape contractor better vision for cost estimation, helping to ensure the project time and budget.
