Cisco network topology - Vector stencils library

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]
The symbols example "Cisco network topology - Vector stencils library" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Cisco Network Diagrams solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

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

Cisco Network Topology represents the arrangement of worldwide recognized and standardized Cisco network symbols, icons, shapes, and stencils which help visualize the schemes of computer networks. Any equipment used in Cisco networks is also named a node and network topology diagram represents the scheme of connection the used nodes. Cisco Network Diagram illustrates how the signals enter on the networked devices and how the data spread within a network from one device to another. These diagrams are useful for engineers while constructing computer networks and working with them. Cisco Network Diagrams solution included to Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park contains quick-start templates, professionally designed samples and examples, and numerous libraries with a lot of predesigned vector design elements, icons, and shapes of Cisco equipment, components, devices, links which provide for ConceptDraw PRO users a perfect possibility of simple and quick drawing Cisco Network Diagrams and Schematics, Network Designs and Maps of any complexity.

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 on Read more
The vector stencils library "Cisco LAN" contains 23 symbols of local area network (LAN) devices and equipment for drawing Cisco LAN topology diagrams.
"Network topology describes the layout of interconnections between devices and network segments. At the Data Link Layer and Physical Layer, a wide variety of LAN topologies have been used, including ring, bus, mesh and star, but the most common LAN topology in use today is switched Ethernet. At the higher layers, the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) has become the standard, replacing NetBEUI, IPX/SPX, AppleTalk and others.
Simple LANs generally consist of one or more switches. A switch can be connected to a router, cable modem, or ADSL modem for Internet access. Complex LANs are characterized by their use of redundant links with switches using the spanning tree protocol to prevent loops, their ability to manage differing traffic types via quality of service (QoS), and to segregate traffic with VLANs. A LAN can include a wide variety of network devices such as switches, firewalls, routers, load balancers, and sensors.
LANs can maintain connections with other LANs via leased lines, leased services, or the Internet using virtual private network technologies. Depending on how the connections are established and secured in a LAN, and the distance involved, a LAN may also be classified as a metropolitan area network (MAN) or a wide area network (WAN)."

How to Draw a Computer Network
How to Draw a Computer Network
The vector stencils library "Computer network" contains 51 symbols of computer network devices and equipment for drawing computer network diagrams.
"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.

The vector stencils library "Network hardware" contains 27 clipart images and symbols of network equipment for drawing computer network diagrams.
"Networking hardware may also be known as network equipment or computer networking devices. Units which are the last receiver or generate data are called hosts or data terminal equipment.
All these terms refer to devices facilitating the use of a computer network. Specifically, they mediate data in a computer network. ...
Typically, networking hardware includes gateways, routers, network bridges, switches, hubs, and repeaters. But it also includes hybrid network devices such as multilayer switches, protocol converters, bridge routers, proxy servers, firewalls, network address translators, multiplexers, network interface controllers, wireless network interface controllers, modems, ISDN terminal adapters, line drivers, wireless access points, networking cables and other related hardware.
The most common kind of networking hardware today is a copper-based Ethernet adapter because of its standard inclusion on most modern computer systems. Wireless networking has, however, become increasingly popular, especially for portable and handheld devices.
Other hardware prevalent in computer networking includes data center equipment (such as file servers, database servers and storage areas), network services (such as DNS, DHCP, email, etc.) as well as devices which assure content delivery.
Taking a wider view, mobile phones, PDAs and even modern coffee machines may also be considered networking hardware. As technology advances and IP-based networks are integrated into building infrastructure and household utilities, network hardware will becomes an ambiguous term owing to the vastly increasing number of "network capable" endpoints."

"Network planning and design is an iterative process, encompassing topological design, network-synthesis, and network-realization, and is aimed at ensuring that a new telecommunications network or service meets the needs of the subscriber and operator. Network planning process involves three main steps: 1) Topological design: This stage involves determining where to place the components and how to connect them. 2) Network-synthesis: This stage involves determining the size of the components used, subject to performance criteria such as the Grade of Service (GoS). 3) Network realization: This stage involves determining how to meet capacity requirements, and ensure reliability within the network."
