Determining the Network Hardware

When you design your network, you must decide what type of network best meets the needs of your organization. Some of the planning decisions you must make involve the following network hardware:

Based on these factors, you can determine the size of your local area network.

Note - How you plan the network hardware is outside the scope of this manual. For assistance, refer to the manuals that come with your hardware.
