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

Cisco Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides 14 libraries with 450 ready-to-use predesigned vector objects that can be used for quickly and easily drawing the professional Cisco Network Diagrams.

Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols

The Cisco Network Diagrams solution uses Cisco network symbols and Cisco icons to visualize computer networks. Cisco Network Topology is the arrangement of the Cisco symbols that display scheme of computer network.
Any Cisco equipment on the network are named like node. Network diagram topology commonly designed within connected nodes. Cisco icons are worldwide acknowledged and mainly established as standard icons for network diagrams. You may use them loosely, but you may not rework them.
The Cisco Network Diagram shows how signals act on the networked devices, or how data routes on the network from one device to the other. There are number of physical network typologies that engineers use while constructing computer networks.

The vector stencils library "Logical symbols" contains 49 logical symbols for drawing logical network topology diagrams.
"Logical topology, or signal topology, is the arrangement of devices on a computer network and how they communicate with one another. How devices are connected to the network through the actual cables that transmit data, or the physical structure of the network, is called the physical topology. Physical topology defines how the systems are physically connected. It represents the physical layout of the devices on the network. The logical topology defines how the systems communicate across the physical topologies.
Logical topologies are bound to network protocols and describe how data is moved across the network. ... EXAMPLE : twisted pair Ethernet is a logical bus topology in a physical star topology layout. While IBM's token ring is a logical ring topology, it is physically set up in star topology." [Logical topology. Wikipedia]

"Network Mapping Software.
A number of software tools exist to design computer network diagrams / or generate visual maps of networks, servers, storage, services, data centers, and other peripherals. Broadly, there are two types of software tools - those that help create diagrams manually and those that generate them using automated / semi-automated approaches.
Type of Software.
(1) Manual - allows users to design and draw logical and physical topology diagrams by manually placing icons and connections.
(2) Automated - generate topology diagrams / maps by traversing the network and automatically discovering resident devices or by importing network data." [Comparison of network diagram software. Wikipedia]
ConceptDraw PRO is the software for manual design of computer network diagrams. The solutions of the Computer and Networks area in ConceptDraw Solution Park extend ConceptDraw PRO with vector stencils libraries, templates and examples for creating the computer network diagrams.

IVR systems allows users to interact through a computer with various service systems, available by telephone. The objective of IVR system is to reduce customer service costs by delivering self service to customers and guiding them to the information that they look for. Interactive Voice Response (IVR) Diagram is used to create and conduct the Interactive Voice Response systems for call-centers and voice mail services. IVR diagrams intended to visualize the logical and physical structure of Interactive voice response systems. ConceptDraw solution for Interactive Voice Response (IVR) Diagram allows you to create and communicate the Interactive Voice Response diagram of any complexity.
The vector stencils library "Switches and relays" contains 58 symbols of electrical contacts, switches, relays, circuit breakers, selectors, connectors, disconnect devices, switching circuits, current regulators, and thermostats for electrical devices.
"In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can break an electrical circuit, interrupting the current or diverting it from one conductor to another.
The most familiar form of switch is a manually operated electromechanical device with one or more sets of electrical contacts, which are connected to external circuits. Each set of contacts can be in one of two states: either "closed" meaning the contacts are touching and electricity can flow between them, or "open", meaning the contacts are separated and the switch is nonconducting. The mechanism actuating the transition between these two states (open or closed) can be either a "toggle" (flip switch for continuous "on" or "off") or "momentary" (push-for "on" or push-for "off") type.
A switch may be directly manipulated by a human as a control signal to a system, such as a computer keyboard button, or to control power flow in a circuit, such as a light switch. Automatically operated switches can be used to control the motions of machines, for example, to indicate that a garage door has reached its full open position or that a machine tool is in a position to accept another workpiece. Switches may be operated by process variables such as pressure, temperature, flow, current, voltage, and force, acting as sensors in a process and used to automatically control a system. ... A switch that is operated by another electrical circuit is called a relay. Large switches may be remotely operated by a motor drive mechanism. Some switches are used to isolate electric power from a system, providing a visible point of isolation that can be padlocked if necessary to prevent accidental operation of a machine during maintenance, or to prevent electric shock." [Switch. Wikipedia]
"A relay is an electrically operated switch. Many relays use an electromagnet to mechanically operate a switch, but other operating principles are also used, such as solid-state relays. Relays are used where it is necessary to control a circuit by a low-power signal (with complete electrical isolation between control and controlled circuits), or where several circuits must be controlled by one signal. The first relays were used in long distance telegraph circuits as amplifiers: they repeated the signal coming in from one circuit and re-transmitted it on another circuit. Relays were used extensively in telephone exchanges and early computers to perform logical operations.
A type of relay that can handle the high power required to directly control an electric motor or other loads is called a contactor. Solid-state relays control power circuits with no moving parts, instead using a semiconductor device to perform switching. Relays with calibrated operating characteristics and sometimes multiple operating coils are used to protect electrical circuits from overload or faults; in modern electric power systems these functions are performed by digital instruments still called "protective relays"." [Relay. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Cisco network topology" contains 89 symbols of Cisco network devices and design elements for drawing computer network topology diagrams.
"There are two basic categories of network topologies:
(1) Physical topologies,
(2) Logical topologies.
The shape of the cabling layout used to link devices is called the physical topology of the network. This refers to the layout of cabling, the locations of nodes, and the interconnections between the nodes and the cabling. The physical topology of a network is determined by the capabilities of the network access devices and media, the level of control or fault tolerance desired, and the cost associated with cabling or telecommunications circuits.
The logical topology in contrast, is the way that the signals act on the network media, or the way that the data passes through the network from one device to the next without regard to the physical interconnection of the devices." [Network topology. Wikipedia]

How to Add a Self-Drawn Object to a Library

One of the key elements of ConceptDraw PRO solutions are the libraries, containing a set of associated objects. Using these collections of business oriented vector objects, you can quickly get started making the diagram in the theme you need. The library collection can be supplemented by creating new or editing existing objects. You can create your own unique library just by dragging objects with the mouse. Library objects can be customized and saved for later use. You can change the scaling, color, line weight, label, and even the fill pattern of an object to use in custom drawings and diagrams. Your custom objects even can be searched for the next time you need to use them.
