Determining the Network Hardware

    Some of the planning decisions that you must make about hardware include the following:

  • Network topology, the layout, and connections of the network hardware

  • Type and number of systems your network can support, including the virtual systems that might be required on your server

  • Network devices to be installed in these systems

  • Type of network media to use, such as Ethernet, and so on

  • Use of bridges, routers, and firewalls to extend the network media or connect the local network to external networks
