Networking Design and Growth Planning

DESIGN, CONFIGURATION AND SUPPORT MANAGEMENT

When designing a new network it is important to weigh the needs and desires of those who will be using it with the budget of those paying for it.

Some important things to consider:

BALANCE

  • Balance security issues with the desire for easy access to information.
  • Balance the high cost of additional capacity against the risk of underutilization.

BUILD

  • Build redundancy into the network in anticipation of breakdowns.
  • Identify and assign capacity for each type of resource required.

STANDARDIZE

  • Standardize hardware and software to keep maintenance costs in check.
  • Coverage of failure points to prioritize where and when to expand and upgrade.

PLAN

  • Future growth should be built into the network design.
  • Consider trends and the impact on correct strategic planning.
