We have two questions about the network concept diagram, mainly to do with the links between devices:
1. Can the links be classified between different types of Ethernet. Ie, FiberOptic (SX/FX), 1000BaseT, 100BaseT etc? Can these be represented with different colours or labels on the resulting diagram?
2. Can the end points of each link be given a unique label? e.g. A link between a router and a switch…on the router end the cable is plugged in Ga0/1 and on the switch end the cable is plugged into Fa01/24. We would like to be able to tag this information in the database, and have it show up in a resulting network diagram. Attached you can find the example.
Also, what is the recommended approach handling Patch Panels between rooms/buildings?
I guess the basis for our questions is in moving from a "Network Concept Diagram" to actual documenting the physical connections of the network.
