Determining the Network Hardware

The number of systems that you expect to support affects how you configure your network. Your organization might require a small network of several dozen standalone physical systems that are located on one floor of a single building. Or, you might need to set up a network with more than 1,000 systems in several buildings. This setup can require you to further divide your network into subdivisions that are called subnets.
