Network Planning (Task Map)

The following table lists different tasks for planning the network configuration.

For Information
Identify the hardware requirements of your planned network topology.
Determine the types of equipment that you need for your network site.
Determining the Network Hardware

For information about a specific type of equipment, refer to the equipment manufacturer's documentation.

Determine the type of IP addresses to use and obtain registered IP addresses.
Select whether you are deploying a purely IPv4 network, an IPv6 network, or a network that uses both types of IP addresses. Obtain unique IP addresses to communicate to public networks in the Internet.
Determine a naming scheme to identify the hosts in the network as well as the name service to use.
Create a list of names to assign to the systems on the network and decide whether to use NIS, LDAP, DNS, or the network databases in the local /etc directory.
If necessary, establish administrative subdivisions and design a strategy for subnets.
Decide if your site requires that you divide your network into subnets to service administrative subdivisions
Determine where to place routers in the network design.
If your network is large enough to require routers, create a network topology that supports them.
Decide whether to create virtual networks in the overall network configuration scheme.
You might need to create virtual networks within a system to reduce the hardware footprint of your network.
