Discuss the PhysicaL Network design andNetwork protocols you will be working with while creating the Local Area Network for Taylor & Sons Financial Consulting. This discussion will be the basis for your diagram in the associated individual


The physical design of a network will show the physical connections of what devices are on the network (routers, switches, hubs, firewalls, etc.) and any endpoints (workstations, printers, etc.). It provides the means to identify unnecessary additional costs, increased points of vulnerability, limitations in the future development of the network, and limitations in the connectivity of the network. A physical diagram presents the following information about the network:

  • Details of physical communication links, such as cable length, grade, and approximation of the physical paths of the wiring, analog, and ISDN lines 
  • Servers, with computer name, IP address (if static), server role, and domain membership. A server can operate in many roles, including primary or backup domain controller, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service server, Domain Name System (DNS) server, Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) server, print server, router, and

    application or file server.
  • Location of devices, such as printers, hubs, switches, modems, routers and bridges, and proxy servers that are on the network

Wide Area Network (WAN) communication links (analog and ISDN) and the available bandwidth between sites; this might be an approximation or the actual measured capacity
