CADE is ideal for network engineers and network designers who need to draw detailed network documentation. Intuitive interface helps to create accurate diagrams in a minutes. Just drag and drop pre-drawn shapes representing computers and network devices. Double click and set equipment data. Draw and auto connect polylines representing data.

Any combination of the supported formats could be paired.

CADE is not only a 2D vector editor but it is a tool to publish and share drawings over the Internet. After the publication CADE documents are viewable with a regular Web browser without any plug-in. To modify the drawing CADE is required.

CADE provides collaborative work on the drawings. Several users can work on the same document locking / unlocking the drawing. The document can be managed using web interface or using CADE application interface. CADE can be easily integrated into a new or existing Windows or web application.
