Planning the Network

You should hold off on creating your network plan until you have truthfully assessed your networking needs. Once you have that information available, you can start the task of determining what kind of client machines you need to purchase and what kind of servers you will have to set up on your network.

Keep in mind that business networks must meet the business requirements of your company or institution. While it is very difficult to assess the actual monetary value added aspects of business computer networks, the network must fit into the overall business plan. This relates to budgetary issues, the infrastructure of the company (do you have to connect remote offices to the central office?), and the level of security required for the network. A company handling credit card information on its network will certainly need a higher level of network security than other networks.
