Whether you’re planning a new data center buildout or an upgrade to an existing environment, one of the most crucial things to recognize is the importance of an organized design of the network topography.

A detailed rendering of your network will greatly assist you in:

  • Planning
  • Scalability
  • Budgeting

Knowing exactly what your network looks like, right down to the shortest jumper length, allows for accurate decisions on space utilization and increased efficiencies in managing the layers of connections.

Enter Microsoft Visio

Microsoft Visio is ideal for mapping out your current data center, as well as creating plans for future upgrades. Here at CABLExpress, our Data Center Architects utilize Visio to help design enterprise-class data centers for some of the world’s most innovative companies.

Visio’s helpful features eliminate the need to draw shapes from scratch, saving you the time and stress. Microsoft provides a free download that includes common data center equipment shapes from manufacturers like 3Com, Cisco, HPE, and Nortel.

These shapes are scaled versions of their real-life counterparts and are hugely helpful to track/plan out the connectivity for your environment.
