Growth is a natural process for many small businesses, and their networks must grow accordingly. Ideally, the network administrator has enough lead time to make intelligent decisions about growing the network in-line with the growth of the company.
To scale a network, several elements are required:
Network documentation – physical and logical topology
Device inventory – list of devices that use or comprise the network
Budget – itemized IT budget, including fiscal year equipment purchasing budget
Traffic analysis – protocols, applications, and services and their respective traffic requirements, should be documented
These elements are used to inform the decision-making that accompanies the scaling of a small network.
