How do you plan a network?

The network planning process involves three main steps:

  1. Topological design: This stage involves determining where to place the components and how to connect them.
  2. Network-synthesis: This stage involves determining the size of the components used, subject to performance criteria such as the Grade of Service (GOS).

What is the difference between a physical and logical network diagram?
