The network cloud is used to represent a section of the network that is not represented on the diagram. This is handy to show the Internet on a network diagram. It can however be used to show any network section that you do not wish to depict by how connectivity to the network needs to be shown.
If the cloud is intended to show the internet then an IP and mask of 0.0.0.0 and 0.0.0.0 should be used. If you are using the cloud to represent a smaller more defined segment then the IP and Mask of the network should be used.
