  • Built-in ConceptDraw Basic scripting language for custom integration of your diagram with any data source.



Network Diagrams
Network Diagram

  • With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can create network diagram using specialized libraries of network components such as computers, hubs, smart connectors etc. that simulate network design topologies and devices, network architectures.
  • The software includes CISCO specific diagrams shape library.
  • With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can draw detailed network diagram where you can visually show the way the network equipment is logically and physically connected and arranged in a room, office, building.
  • You can create a complex diagram that consists of different Concept Draw diagrams, each with specified level of detail, connected by hyperlinks.

You can easily connect network topology shapes by using smart connectors that can be visually attached to library shapes. Once you have joined the device and connector your device remains connected even if you want to move it somewhere.

You can store data, such as network name and IP address, manufacturers, product number, serial number, price and other information with the shapes. This information can be used in ConceptDraw Basic scripting language for automatic calculations.

Also you can use ConceptDraw Basic scripting language for receiving up-to-date information from manufactory's databases.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM makes it easy to share your network design diagram with others in a business presentation or on the web.

Directory services diagrams

With directory services templates in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can:

  • Draw and design new directories, visually changing the structure of already existing ones.
  • Using the design of the directory structure you can easily change location of all your network components, plan, update, and migrate programs.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM has all necessary Active Directory Sites and Service shapes, Directory connectors to show the links between domains, sites, and services on the network. These shapes are designed for use in planning a directory or network, or for planning distribution and replication of information among different servers at different sites.

Cisco Routers. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols →

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 onCisco Routers

Cisco Network Design. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils, symbols and design elements →

Talking about companies, that have influenced the entire industry, we should mention Cisco and it’s influence on network design. Nowadays, this equipment has became a kind of standard, and Cisco icons, shapes, stencils, symbols and design elements are easily recognized among others. You can use these icons to develop a network diagram of any complexity. When dealing with creating a pack of network documentation, system administrator often have to depict a network containing a network equipment of such a well-known manufacturer as Cisco. As Cisco has developed its own production standard icons that are strongly recommended to use in Cisco network diagrams. The best way to draw Cisco Network diagram Cisco certified icons is using ConceptDraw solution for Cisco Network Diagrams. Using Cisco symbols library provided by this solution allows system administrator, or network architect to design a prototype of a new network or document an existing one.Cisco Network Design.
