LAN Design Considerations

To maximize available LAN bandwidth and performance, the design considerations are:

  • The function and placement of servers
  • Collision-detection issues
  • Segmentation issues
  • Broadcast domain issues
lan design methodology
LAN Design Methodology
  • Gather requirements and expectations
  • Analyze requirements and data
  • Design the Layer 1, 2, and 3 LAN structure, or topology 
  • Document the logical and physical network implementation
layer 2 design developing a lan topology
Layer 2 Design: Developing a LAN Topology
  • Switch frames based on MAC address information
  • Provide error detection
  • Reduce congestion in network
microsegmentation of the network
Microsegmentation of the Network

Microsegmentation of the network reduces the size of collision domains and reduces collisions.

asymmetric switching
Asymmetric Switching

Asymmetric switching provides switched connections between ports of unlike bandwidth, such as a combination of 10-Mbps and 100-Mbps ports

use routers to impose logical structure
Use Routers to Impose Logical Structure

Routers provide scalability because they serve as firewalls for broadcasts. They can also provide scalability by dividing networks into subnetworks, or subnets, based on Layer 3 addresses.

access layer
Access Layer

The access layer provides users in workgroups access to the network. It is the entry point for user workstations and servers to the network.

access layer1
Access Layer

Functions of the Access Layer:

  • Shared Bandwidth, if hub is used.
  • Switched Bandwidth, if switch is used.
  • MAC Layer filtering.
  • Microsegmentation: creates small collision domain.

distribution layer
Distribution Layer

The distribution layer of the network is between the access and core layers. It helps to define and separate the core. The purpose of this layer is to provide a boundary definition in which packet manipulation can take place.

distribution layer1
Distribution Layer
  • In a switched network, the distribution layer includes several functions such as the following:
    • Aggregation of the wiring-closet connections
    • Broadcast/multicast domain definition
    • VLAN routing
    • Any media transitions that need to occur
    • Security

core layer
Core Layer

The core layer is a high-speed switching backbone. The core layer should be designed to switch packets as fast as possible.
