Learning to Diagram
« on: September 02, 2018, 11:37:50 AM »
So, I'm trying to solve this and can't even seem to get it off the ground. I need to draw a visio diagram of a network that has three layers (which I don't get) and the inner layer has two switches and provides connection between servers, the second layer and the internet. The second layer has a ring that is between the core and two switchs...

can anyone help me start this off because I am lost...send me a private message if it is easier.

Thank you.

Assume you have visio installed on your system

1:  google "visio 3 layer network diagrams" for ideas
2:  go to "www.visio.café" or google "cisco visio stencils" for shapes
3:  take some basic shapes (included in visio) and pull from stencil and place on drawing....all for practice

you are now locked and loaded to make some test drawings.

Yeah I have Visio. The issue I have is not understanding how to represent a ring

a ring as in circle?
a ring as in closed loop of cell references?  you shouldn't do that (visio usually catches those as says "don't do dat")

I believe that is the purpose of this assignment. Some of the criteria is to build the graphic and then announce what setup is incorrect in the environment but I can't even seem to grasp how to visually represent it.

Why are you using Visio?
Visio 2019 Pro

It is very likely that we are talking about something like this picture.
I'm not a specialist in networking, but I've heard the name Token Ring :)

Hope this article can help  to understand interconnection terms, also you can find there network diagrams with these three layers.

What is that "ring" the second layer should have?  Is it something like "The One Ring", or?
