If the monster in your closet is a jumble of network cable and blinking equipment, perhaps it’s time to bring the beast down to size in a Microsoft Office Visio 2003 diagram. Among the earliest adopters of the Visio application were IT professionals and network administrators who discovered how easy it could be to create a picture of their network. Shapes that represent network devices snap together to show you what you have or to demonstrate the system you would like. With Visio, you can create network diagrams that provide necessary documentation for training, proposals, troubleshooting, planning, and so on. Network diagrams easily integrate with documents that you create in other programs, such as budget and asset worksheets you create in Microsoft Office Excel 2003 or presentations you deliver in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003.
