Planning the Network Deployment

This chapter briefly describes the different considerations when you plan your network setup. These issues will help you to deploy your network in an organized and cost-effective manner. Note that the details of planning the network are outside the scope of this book. Only general directions are provided.

This book assumes that you are familiar with basic networking concepts and terminology. For a description of how the TCP/IP protocol suite is implemented in Oracle Solaris 11, see Network Stack in Oracle Solaris in Introduction to Oracle Solaris 11 Networking.
