I am using excel for document our patch panel connections between telephones, computers and switches. It is not user friendly and not good for update data.
Is there any free solution for doing it better than excel? Such as visio templates or
freeware like Device42

Hmmm that page says it costs $1499 - that's not Freeware!

Have a look at some of the opinions of people here...
