Network Topology and Models

Each network, regardless of size, has a schematic. This network design is referred to as the network topology, and is determined by the equipment in use and the desired form of communication. Factors, such as what functionality the users of the network will require, assist in determining how the network will be laid out. Simply put, the purpose of the network has a major impact on its design.

The factors considered when designing a network include desired speed, file transfer and storage needs, physical size and location of the layout and number of users involved.

Each network type is based on a model. This means that based on the topology chosen, factors, which may work for or against the intended result, are crucial. Beyond the topology chosen, there are additional considerations, which are examined next.
